UK headline tour with support from Movements and Jools in February: Buy tickets

Boston Manor have released a new acoustic rendition of recent single ‘Algorithm’. It’s a delicately lush, piano-led iteration of the track which is a rumination of the burden to perpetuate “content” beyond art, that creators are laden with these days. The original version of ‘Algorithm’ features on Boston Manor’s ‘Desperate Times, Desperate Pleasures’ EP, which was released in October via their new label SharpTone Records to critical acclaim. The EP is now available on 10” vinyl, following its digital and cassette tape formats.

Boston Manor relished their return to live music in 2021, delivering incendiary sets at the landmark Download Pilot, Reading & Leeds and Slam Dunk Festivals. They also made it back out to North America as main support to Neck Deep on a significant run of dates. Boston Manor are now pleased to announce that they’ll be returning for a North American headline tour in April / May with Trash Boat and Higher Power in tow, introducing the US and Canada to some of the finest new rock music the UK has to offer on a mammoth 28-date stint. Boston Manor are also set to headline the UK in February at some of their biggest shows to date and this summer will see the band return to Download Festival, as well as playing Rock Am Ring, Graspop and more.

‘Desperate Times, Desperate Pleasures’ marks a concerted step into the future for Boston Manor. It’s the coining of a bold, bright new sound, building upon the bruising pop-punk of their earlier work, the big moves of last album ‘GLUE’, to compose music that’s both heavier and more unabashedly accessible than that which preceded it. Hook-laden, coherent, blackly witty and with a molten emotional core, it’s the opening of a new chapter, hinting at even greater brilliance to follow. This latest collection sees Boston Manor tapping into teen influences of the late 90s – the Cardigans, the Cranberries, later-era Depeche Mode. They recorded their new material at Stustustudio in Brixton with Larry Hibbitt.

Press praise for ‘Desperate Times, Desperate Pleasures’:

“the band sound perhaps the most refined and assured that they have in their whole career.” – Kerrang! (4 / 5) 

“a discordant and dark piece of frank and forward-thinking British rock brilliance.” – Rock Sound 

“Through its sheer intensity, in both theme and sound, ‘Desperate Times, Desperate Pleasures’ finds itself Boston Manor’s most assertive release yet.” – DIY Mag (4.5 / 5)

“Perhaps some of their best work yet; a heavier, beefier iteration of the band, but one that still retains all their previous charm and rawness” – Upset

“five tracks that are set to blow your mind and clutch at your heart.” – Punktastic
