We’re delighted to be welcoming Admiral Fallow back to Manchester!

Admiral Fallow (Louis Abbott, Kevin Brolly, Phil Hague, Sarah Hayes and Joe Rattray) released their much-beloved debut album Boots Met My Face in 2011, its widely acclaimed successor Tree Bursts In Snow the following year, and an extraordinary third record, Tiny Rewards, in 2015.

Their much-anticipated fourth studio album, The Idea of You, was released via legendary Scottish label Chemikal Underground in November 2021. This captivating collection of songs – generously melodic, confidently executed and festooned with intricacies – was warmly praised by Mojo (4*), The Skinny (4*) and Uncut Magazine (‘…beguiling melodic uplift’). Three singles from the record, Sleepwalking, Dragonfly and Tuesday Grey, received airplay on BBC 6 Music and BBC Scotland.

Admiral Fallow’s recent live appearances include a UK tour, numerous festival appearances and four nights supporting The Proclaimers at their Back In The Big Top summer shows. In winter 2023 the band performed two special anniversary gigs at Glasgow’s legendary King Tut’s, to celebrate the vinyl re-issue of their debut album on their own label, First Name Unknown.

Over their 17 years together, Admiral Fallow have taken their music around the world, touring the UK, Europe, North America and Australia. Further career highlights include a commission from Glasgow Film Festival, performing with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, and creating an ambitious new chamber opera. Navigate The Blood was co-written with Gareth Williams and Sian Evans, and toured eight Scottish distilleries in November 2018.

A group of versatile musicians all uniquely in demand for their skills, the individual band members also find the time to tour and record with renowned artists such as King Creosote, Emma Pollock, Field Music, Kris Drever, Karine Polwart and many others.

Age restriction: 14+. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
