MONEY join Frightened Rabbit in London

MONEY are heading back to London following their sold-out February show at Village Underground.

The Manchester band, who recently released their second album ‘Suicide Songs’, are supporting  Frightened Rabbit at St John at Hackney on 14 April, before playing headline shows in Sheffield and Manchester.

Ahead of the gigs, the trio have released a video for their new single, ‘All My Life’, compiled from live performance footage shot at venues like London’s Village Underground and Lexington.

“For better or for worse we have put our minds bodies and souls into the writing and recording of ‘Suicide Songs’. This one was written at a low moment, after a week trying to destroy myself in the pubs in Manchester, travelling back into the practice room almost in tears to write it. It just came out,” frontman Jamie Lee wrote of the song on the band’s Facebook page.

‘Suicide Songs’, the follow-up to 2013’s ‘The Shadow Of Heaven’ was, according to Lee, written at a time of “internal disputes about the music’s direction… songs but no palpable direction. The outlook was often fairly bleak. But we stuck together.”

And the resulting album is as uplifting as it is harrowing.

“I wanted the album to sound like it was ‘coming from death’ which is where these songs emerged,” explains Lee. “The record is morbid and bleak, and never resolves itself. The only real kind of triumphant realisation is being able to express the morbidity of the situation I found myself in.”
