Manchester based The Words have had a whirlwind couple of years supporting some of the biggest acts on the planet including Placebo, 30 Seconds to Mars and The Stranglers, completing a three week European Tour and recording the follow up to their debut album ‘Truth & Faith’
Since then the band have featured many times on UK national radio on stations including Kerrang and BBC 6 Music, with Tom Robinson a confirmed fan of the band.
In May 2012 The Words built on their European fan base with their first overseas tour, playing a series of high profile events throughout Europe including the Ober Sankt Veiter Gratzlfest in Vienna city centre.
In 2013 The Words have spent a month in a top European studio recording their second album. The tracks are currently being mixed with the studio working alongside Grammy award winning engineer Brian Lucey (Black Keys). The album is due for release late 2013
