‘Shade’ are a brand new, exciting alt-rock band hailing from the UK’s most vibrant music hub: Manchester. The four piece (Luke, Adam, Macca & Oliver) incorporate a huge, layered, powerful energy into their distinct MCR sound, and with their striking guitars & punchy, melodic vocals, there are clear influences from their hometown greats, citing influences such as Kasabian, Oasis & The Stone Roses.

The band are already breaking into the scene with a bang, having had their spring-time debut single ‘’Neverdie’ played on prestigious radio stations ‘XS Manchester’, ‘Big Indie Giant’, ‘Amazing Radio’ & reaching 33k+ online streams, along with being named This Feeling’s ‘Track of the day’. On top of this, the lads have so far honed their live talent across the city and amassed a loyal fanbase on their way, playing notable city venues around their hometown.

Having just signed to ‘Fear Records’ the lads have a busy looking year ahead, with their upcoming anticipated Autumn release of their brand new single ‘Head In The Clouds’, produced by legendary Gavin Monaghan (Editors, Robert Plant) at Magic Garden studios. 

With more singles in the pipeline, along with a festival performance this August to pave the way for the rest of a busy 2020, you’ll need to catch Shade quickly on their way up, this is just the beginning for this MCR 4 piece & they won’t be slowing down…
