Formed in early 2017, Dirty Laces have been making an impact on the Manchester music scene with their punk inspired high energy performances, heavy riffs and their own interpretation of popular 60’s and 70’s bands, whilst fusing these components with powerful choruses and raw rock and roll edge.
They have had a solid first 12 months as a band with sell out shows in Manchester on more than one occasion and also sell out shows in Leeds and Sheffield.
More recently, they have shared a strong billing on the Tim Peaks stage at Liverpool Sound City and were part of The Charlatans CW9 North by Northwich takeover. They have had 3 releases to date, the first two were DIY digital releases and the most recent, The Modern Age EP, was released in conjunction with NoCo Records on 12” Vinyl.
