Manchester based Dirty Laces is a down and out rock ‘n’ roll outfit who hit you with crunching and hypnotic guitars, huge drum fills and a sound intent on echoing the likes of The Cult and Led Zeppelin meshed with a Libertines-esque vibe. Their new single ‘These Days’ is out now via Golden Robot Records.
“’These Days’ is a song about the times we now live in, along with the history of class struggle and the rise and fall of empires and how that’s relevant to what we’re experiencing now,” exclaimed the band.
“The song was written just after a long stint in isolation and was fuelled by the emotion that comes with long periods without social interaction and the things you take for granted.
“Most of the media we were consuming at the time was very negative and bleak and painted a picture of the mess that the UK was in. But there has always been struggle and resistance towards power in history. It’s obviously not a new thing.”
Striding between the Cotton Mills of North Manchester, Dirty Laces has gone from strength to strength selling out multiple shows in their hometown and building a fan-base the old school way, relentlessly shaking venues in the UK with their explosive set, and having been invited to support their hero Peter Doherty on more than one occasion.
