The Travelling Band and their ‘Battlescars’

On 1 August 2011 The Travelling Band follow the release of their second album ‘Screaming Is Something’ with a new single. Called ‘Battlescars’ the download only single is backed by ‘Face To The Ground’; ‘Battlescars’ is lifted off ‘Screaming Is Something’.

The Travelling Band’s shimmering blend of cosmic-country-pop, understated psychedelia, vocal harmonies and nu-folk has made them one of the most talked about artists to emerge from the Manchester music scene – “If you consider the term Mancunian Americana to be an oxymoron try listening to the Travelling Band.” Marc Riley BBC 6 Music.

Set for a June UK release, ‘Screaming Is Something’, which isn’t quite soul music, isn’t quite folk, isn’t quite pop, country or rock, is being supported by a UK Tour (dates below and ticketing details on the band’s website).
