Emerging from Wigan, Stanleys are the next in a long line of illustrious musicians to emerge from the North Western town. Bands and artists ranging from George Formby Senior and Junior to The Verve, Starsailor to The Lathums are proud to call Wigan home, eventually taking their poignant songwriting across the rest of the country and Stanleys are set to follow in their footsteps.
Perhaps there’s something about hearing a regional accent singing in full flow that’s endearing, or their jangly riffs and subtle drum beats reminiscent of other great North West bands such as The Smiths or The La’s. Some would argue the recognisable relatable stories told by front man Tom Concannon is the focal point of the band, with Jake Dorsman (guitar), Harry Ivory (bass) and Rob Hilton (drums and backing vocals) completing the line up. But ultimately, it is a combination of all these things that have seen Stanleys make their mark on the North West scene so quickly.
Performing at The Lathums’ sold-out show at O2 Victoria Warehouse, as well as sold out shows at O2 Ritz with Jamie Webster and The Lottery Winners; all on top of selling out their own headline Manchester Club Academy show (which was twice upgraded), Stanleys have a strong-hold on the North West scene. And it’s now only a matter of time before the rest of the country are hanging onto every word.
Taking place in November 2022, Stanleys will head to Leeds, Liverpool, Newcastle, Sheffield, Birmingham and London before a homecoming show in Wigan on Saturday 19th November.
“The last time we played a hometown show was well before the pandemic,” Jake says in anticipation of the band’s return to Wigan, “and that’s what makes this tour special. To see how the venue sizes have grown since our debut tour in December is also really exciting and visiting new places such as Newcastle and Sheffield is also something we’re really looking forward to. Playing the brand new EP in its entirety is going to be an unreal experience and we can’t wait to share it with the fans.”
