The Courteeners follow the pre-release sell out of debut single 'Cavorting' with a new single on October 22nd 2007. 'Acrylic' will be immediately familiar to those who have seen the band live and, as with 'Cavorting', showcases singer and lyricist Liam Fray's wry take on the world around him over a tune tailor made to lodge in your head for the next fortnight.
Liam Fray was known around the North West prior to the formation of The Courteeners as one of Manchester's most promising and popular songwriters. Having tired of being unable to make the big sound that he yearned for on his own, he recruited fellow Middleton dwellers, Campbell (drums), Cupello (bass) and Conan (guitar). All known to each other since school days, (Campbell lived next door but one), the transition from solo singer to band was a short and seemingly pre-ordained transition. Early shows at D-Percussion and around the Manchester area saw the band build a fanatical local following in a very short space of time and their shows soon became must attend events in the city.
'Acrylic' is released via the band's now long term home, A&M/Loog Records, on October 22nd. The cd features new track 'Kimberley' whilst the 7" is backed by the gloriously titled 'An Ex Is An Ex For A Reason'.
