Blackpool’s Boston Manor are back with a massive new single ‘Foxglove’. The release is the first new music since their killer EP ‘Desperate Times, Desperate Pleasures’ last year. The song perfectly blends the mass of influences that have reared their heads through Boston Manors past releases, from 90s alt rock & grunge to dark industrial elements, ‘Foxglove’ has it all yet doesn’t sound disjointed as they manage to keep their pop sensibilities with some seriously catchy hooks.
The track comes from a cohesion of ideas and energy in the studio recording with Larry Hibbitt in Brixton. As frontman Henry Cox says: “It’s about losing your grip on things and starting to feel the train coming off the tracks. The video was a lot of fun to shoot, it spanned several nights across the North West of England hanging out of a box truck with a camera strapped to me.”
Boston Manor exploded back onto the returning live music scene in 2021 with powerful sets at Download Pilot, Reading & Leeds and Slam Dunk Festivals, as well as a tour as main support to Neck Deep in North America. The band have hit the ground touring in 2022 with a sold out UK headline tour in February, hitting Brixton Electric in London. They’ll be supporting Neck Deep in Europe and playing at numerous European and UK festivals this summer including Rock Am Ring, Download and 2000 Trees.
