Hailing from the seaside resort of Blackpool in the North West of England, Boston Manor are a five-piece pop/rock outfit known for their pop-laden vocal harmonies and bright, overdriven guitar work akin to the style of household pop-punk acts such as blink-182 and Bowling for Soup. Formed in 2013, the band quickly gained recognition for their D.I.Y. approach to recording, touring, promoting, and making a name for themselves on the local and national gig circuit. They put out several releases in the following years, including the independently released Here/Now EP in 2013 and a split 7” single with Manchester-based hardcore act Throwing Stuff later that year. They put out their second EP, Driftwood, through Failure by Design Records in 2014. They went on to sign with California-based punk label Pure Noise Records in 2015, and put out the Saudade EP later that year before getting to work on their debut full-length effort. The album, Be Nothing, was released through Pure Noise during the fall of 2016. Their sophomore album Welcome To The Neighbourhood is set to be released in September 2018.
