False Advertising Announce New Single ‘Honest’


False Advertising

Band To Comment On Media Manipulation With 4 Live “False Adverts” Via ‘False Advertising TV’ On Social Media

Manchester-based trio False Advertising are pleased to announce they will release their new single ‘Honest’ on the 16th of June 2017.

In the week running up to the track’s release, the band will launch ’False Advertising TV’ across their social media channels, which they will use to debut the track live through four bespoke “False” Adverts, conceived and shot by the band themselves.

False Advertising TV will air on Monday 12th, Tuesday 13th and Wednesday 14th June at 8pm, then Thursday 15th June at 1pm ahead of their headline show at Gullivers in Manchester that night.

The single is the second in a run of standalone releases the band are putting out throughout 2017 and builds on their caustic, fuzz-drenched approach to alternative rock, continuing a year which has already seen the DIY band showcase at Texas’ SXSW Festival, featured in NME magazine and get their first BBC Radio 1 play.

Ever DIY in their approach to their music, in order to record the track the trio quite literally begged a friend who was studying at Abbey Road studios for a free recording slot, which unfortunately didn’t quite go to plan.

“We had just started tracking the first song when a guy burst in saying that we were playing so loud they could hear us in the other studio next-door” comments band member Jen Hingley “We somehow managed to get the take whilst they were on a break for lunch, but it nearly didn’t happen.”

‘Honest’ was recorded between Abbey Road Studios and the band’s own house in Manchester. It was produced, engineered and mixed by the band in collaboration with Sam Jones.

Upcoming live dates:

15th June – Manchester, Gullivers (with Pinact and Psyblings)
8th July – The Ferret, Preston
23rd July – Stockport – Blackthorn Festival
5th August – Hull, Humber Street Sesh Festival
