England’s Boston Manor are gaining some major ground in the pop-punk world.
Hailing from Blackpool, the group established themselves with the release of their EP Saudade in November of 2015. Now they’ve returned with their latest single, “Lead Feet,” blending their pop-punk sound with emotionally charged lyrics. The single comes from the band’s first full-length album Be Nothing, which drops Sept. 30 via Pure Noise Records. You can preorder it here.
“Be Nothing is the culmination of three years of hard work, it's something we're immensely proud of and we can't wait to share it with the world,” says vocalist Henry Cox.
“Lead Feet” tells a tale of reflection and new direction, reminding us that all choices have consequences. Cox conveys this message through his seemingly effortless shift from heady vocals to throaty screams.
“Around the time we were writing this album, I got a phone call from a guy I was friends with in school. One day, when we were about 13, he just didn't show up to school. We got told he'd been taken into care and I never heard from him again until he called,” Cox shares. “He somehow got my parents’ phone number and rang me one day to tell me about the last ten years of his life, how people he'd loved had died, how he'd just got out of prison and struggled with addiction, lots of really troubling turbulent stuff. ‘Lead Feet’ is about how two people’s lives can begin so similarly but the choices they make can take them in totally opposite directions.”
