Following their debut sold out UK tour this summer, Manchester’s emerging new band Yes Lad have announced a UK headline tour for Spring 2018.

Mentored by former Take That manager, Nigel Martin Smith Yes Lad comprises of members Cian Gleeson, Joel Healey, Sonny Hardman, Lewis Maxwell, and Jake Donlan. As well writing their own material they also play various different instruments, each bringing their own unique style and sound to the band.

After the success of their poptastic debut single ‘Walk Away’ which reached the top five of Music Week’s club charts, the guys released their second single “Something More” this summer. Having already built up a huge fan base online they have also gained mainstream support from the likes of The Sun, Evening Standard, Blue Peter and BBC Radio 1.

Yes Lad are currently working on their new single ‘Nada’ which is due out early in 2018 and will be followed by the band’s debut album in the Spring.

There’s a lot of music out there - good music. At Essentially Pop our remit is that we cover music that deserves to be heard, with a particular focus on independent artists. That doesn't mean we won't cover your old favourites - rather we hope to give you some new favourites as well.

We no longer accept unpaid PR agency work. We believe the creative arts have value, and this includes writing. As always, we will write about artists who contact us - or who we contact - for free - but we can no longer work free of charge for PR agencies. We work hard, we put in a lot of hours writing, and we ask that you respect that. Contact us for our very reasonable rates.
