City Reign


Do you ever feel like you just want to press pause? Take five minutes of peace and let the white noise of the “everyday-being-there” subside? Many bands write songs about the frustrations of the day job. Not since the National’s early records has a band managed it while delicately balancing between effortless introspective subtly and irrepressible energy. Yet this is fast becoming the hallmark of Manchester band City Reign.

Manchester’s incendiary indie four-piece City Reign are to release new live single “See What It’s Worth”, on 24th March. Their debut LP Another Step received widespread critical acclaim upon its release in February 2013, sparking interest from national press – Q, Uncut, The Independent, Clash, This Is Fake DIY – and resulting in two UK and European tours.

Back on September 20th, Manchester-based indie/alternative rock quartet City Reign announced to their fans that they were offering a free fan-only, limited time download of their popular song “Ahead of Ideas”. Via their newsletter they noted: “To thank you for your continued support, we’re giving all of our fans signed up to the mailing list the chance to download the new single completely and utterly free!”
