2019 live album also available on CD.
Manchester UK based quartet the Larkins have yet to release a debut album, but in the true nature of gigging bands who slowly build up a following these boys - band members Josh Noble | Vocals & Guitar, Dom Want | Guitar, Henry Beach | Bass, Joe Gaskell | Drums - are certainly getting noticed and drawing acclaim and justifiably so. As Music Crowns reviewed “ Trust us – Manchester guitar-pop collective Larkins are fast on their way to becoming your next favourite band.” And we concur, so we are delighted that this release of Larkins ‘Live At The Albert Hall Manchester’ is available.
The album was recorded at their landmark hometown show to 2000 rapturous fans. Regarding the live album frontman Josh Noble says, “We are very proud to present a recording from our live show at the Albert Hall in Manchester. It felt like everything we had done so far as a band had kind of led to this moment. We’ve played almost every venue in town over the past few years and we’d always joked about playing Albert Hall, half-expecting it to never happen."
“Our first show was in a pub to just 30 people just around the corner from the Albert Hall so to get to this point and to have so many people who want to see our music live is surreal. This tour has showed us what it means to be a part of this band and to finish at home was perfect. To every single person that came, we can’t even express how much we loved the show. What you hear is what we played on the night and hopefully this gives you an idea of what’s to come.”
Larkins are on a meteoric rise as one of the most exciting and in-demand bands to emerge from Manchester in recent times and are recording their debut album with producers Dan Nigro (A-Trak, Sky Ferreira, Lewis Capaldi) and Andrew Dawson (Kanye West, Fun, Kid Cudi).
