We’d like to say a massive thank you Lenovo for supporting our music.
We’ve been quiet the last few months as we’ve been working hard on all new material, a new set list and rehearsing new material but we’re about to get very busy again.
We’re recording a brand new single at the end of this month which will be released around May time backed by a UK tour which is currently being booked and we’ll be giving out all the information on that very shortly.
In the meantime we’re playing at Club Academy in Manchester this Saturday night so get yourselves along and have a listen to our new set. See you all there!

We’re headlining at the Monmouth Festival this year on Monday August 20th.
Entry to the festival is free so if you are anywhere near South Wales be sure to come along and watch. Here are some quotes from the Monmouth 2012 Festival Brochure available to download at http://www.monmouthfestival.co.uk/MonmouthFestivalbrochure2012.pdf
“This four-piece from Manchester, masters of tuneful Brit-pop style indie, are on the fasttrack to being huge. We’ve snapped them up for the Festival so you can see them before they reach stadium status.” – Monmouth Festival Brochure
“If you should need further encouragement to go and have a listen, I would take the opportunity to point out that these guys are on the fast track to being huge. They’ve already opened for bands like Placebo … and 30 Seconds to Mars … been enjoying steady airplay on Kerrang FM and been described as “absolutely storming” when introduced on BBC 6 Music.” – Electric Harmony

The Words are an exciting sounding four piece from Manchester, who have been working away at bringing their brand of poppy indie music to the larger audience it deserves.
They have a new single coming out on June 25th, called ‘Head Over Heals’. It’s the kind of feel good song that fits nicely in with long hot summer days and perfect for festivals in every way.
Listening to it, I was reminded of the rash of bands that came out during the ‘Brit Pop’ era, trying to sound bright and radio friendly, most of them only really irritating the hell out of this reviewer, but The Words are masters of this tuneful territory, and the result is something they can really be proud of.
The single is backed by the equally bouncing ‘I’m Not Listening’.
To be honest, either song could have been selected as a single, so good are the band at crafting tuneful guitar songs. I’m looking forward to seeing The Words become a success, and I’m sure the fans will enjoy the ride too.

Sounds like The Words have jumped into a big pool of indie for this one. There’s no doubt ‘Head Over Heels’ is a light quiver in comparison to some of their more stormy sounds – but it works. Pumped with poppy whines and cute wire-y riffs there’s no denying this chirpy little number is a delight to listen to. In fact, it screams summer hit and is sure to get a wide number of heads bobbing along; a sparky two and half minute gem every ear can appreciate. There’s also something really homely about the lyrics – nothing too deep, which is another thing that makes this track so fun. It’s real; here’s no dreary droning on about that fit girl who broke my heart. After cramming these snappy melodies into my ears for the fifteenth time I think it’s safe to say I totally recommended this quirky little track, and I think you’ll all thank me for doing so.
Head Over Heels is released through Phoenixx Records on June 25th.
Our track ‘Everybody’s With You’ is the soundtrack to Manchester City’s April Goal of the Month video compilation at http://www.mcfc.co.uk/citytv/Features/2012/May/Manchester-City-April-goals-of-the-month-2012, please visit the site and have a look.
