City Reign Announce New Single ‘Making Plans’ + Live Dates – Out 25th February on Car Boot Records

Manchester indie rockers, City Reign, have announced the first single ‘Making Plans’, from their forthcoming debut album ‘Another Step’.  The single follows taster tracks the band offered as free downloads ‘Ahead of Ideas’ and ‘Retaliate’

First taster ‘Ahead Of Ideas’ propelled them on a UK tour and led to Clash Magazine asking them to open their inaugural issue launch gig in Manchester, recognising them as one of the best bands on the circuit, naming them

The band teamed up with Manchester-based producer Sam Jones (Alex Turner) for the album, who took the band into Sacred Trinity Church in Salford to record. Jones chose the church for its rich natural reverb, which helped to bring depth to the band’s classic guitar sound.

The sound builds on the raw energy and exciting promise of the early demos, including the demo version of ‘Making Plans’ which caught the ears of Steve Lamacq and The Independent in late 2011. City Reign are song-writing pair Chris Bull and Mike Grice with Duncan Bolton on drums. The album, ‘Another Step’, is due for release the same day (25th February)
