Hey! Manchester presents Gratis: Butcher the Bar w/ Joe Edwards
- Buy Tickets
Butcher the Bar is the once-bedroom-pop recording project of Joel Nicholson, now a five-piece guitar band based in Manchester.
Releasing two records via Berlin based indie label Morr Music – ‘Sleep At Your Own Speed’ (2008) and ‘For Each A Future Tethered’ (2011) – Joel has taken Butcher the Bar across Europe and UK solo, as a duo and a full band, playing venues large and small in places far and wide – and after eight years, is ready to release a third LP.
Written and recorded between 2013 and 2015, ‘III’ is the first BtB album to feature a full band, originally put together to tour in 2011 following FEAFT. Recorded in studios and houses across south Manchester, this collection of songs is the most dynamic, diverse and fully realised of any BtB release to date.
Joel says: ‘A lot has happened since we made this record but, having recently spent time putting it together, and going back through the songs and album as a whole, we’re finally ready to offer it up. They’re the best songs we’ve done, and just want people to hear them.’
Support comes from Joe Edwards.
This is a free show – but we strongly advise booking your place in advance via Ticketweb.co.uk.
