Biography

The Words are a 4 piece indie band based in Manchester who are developing an exciting reputation as one of the top up and coming bands in the country by combining an incredible passion for music with the ability to create ‘music for the masses’, songs that are instantly recognisable and undeniably infectious.

Drawing on an enormous range of influences from David Bowie through to The Strokes, The Words have managed to create their own unique style of music that both entertains and excites.

Over the past 12 months The Words have opened the Incoming Festival at The Fly in London, supported The Stranglers at Wyeside Music Festival, featured at Liverpool’s Sound City festival and performed nearly 100 gigs at venues around the UK including sell out performances headlining at Academy 3 and FAC251 in Manchester.

The band’s music has also been recognised with ‘Drum for a Soul’ being licensed for an independent film, ‘Caroline’ being selected for Microsoft’s recent sponsored song program to promote Windows 7, ‘Under the Sun’ being featured by Mercedes-Benz in their mixtape promotion and ‘FAG’ being licensed for a Playstation 3 and PSP game. ‘Under the Sun’ was also recently “introduced” by Tom Robinson on BBC 6 Music where he described the band as ‘absolutely storming’.

The Words have recently signed their first record deal with Phoenixx Records and are working on their first studio album which will be released in 2011.
