The Words

About The Band

Bio: The Words are a 4 piece indie band based in Manchester who are developing an exciting reputation as one of the top unsigned 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 and performed nearly 100 gigs at venues around the UK culminating in a recent sell out performance headlining at Academy 3 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 and ‘Under the Sun’ being featured by Mercedes-Benz in their mixtape promotion. ‘Under the Sun’ was also recently “introduced” by Tom Robinson on BBC 6 Music.

The Words have recently returned from a successful tour of Scotland and followed that up with the release of their first official single ‘FAG’. The Words are now fine tuning a selection of exciting new tracks which are currently going down a storm in the live arena and will form the basis of their first studio album.
