The Lathums announce intimate Manchester show for Teenage Cancer Trust

After ousting Drake to a debut number one in the UK album charts, the Lathums are the hottest ticket in town. 

It was just over two years ago that the four-piece rockers began jamming in Wigan pubs.

Since a music video for anthemic single ‘Great Escape’ went viral on social media, the Lathums have shot to stardom, signing a mega deal with the iconic ‘Island Records’.

The band, fronted by lead singer Alex Moore, just played their largest sold-out show to date at the Manchester 02 Warehouse in a triumphant homecoming. 

It’s been a meteoric rise for the band, who spent lockdown mastering the rave-reviewed ‘How Beautiful Life Can Be’ record to build on their fledgling success.

Currently embarking on a nationwide tour, the quartet are riding a wave as part of the UK’s indie-rock revivalism. 

During a hectic schedule, the band reserved space for another special homecoming gig as a fundraiser in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust. 

As part of Scotts Menswear’s ‘Be Part of it’ campaign in partnership with This Feeling, the Lathums will play a small show at the Manchester University Students Union (Academy 3) on Thursday October 28. 

They will be supported by Scarborough four-piece the Feens and all proceeds go to the Teenage Cancer Trust. 

Tickets have been made accessible by direct messaging the clothing band Scotts on social media, with entry via donation to the chosen charity. 

“From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much Manchester,” the band tweeted after being spurred on by over 3,000 fans at a packed 02 Warehouse this month. 

“This is just the start of our journey together.”

The next Manchester appearance promises to be a far more intimate occasion, but fans can expect a poignant evening with hit tunes ‘Fight On’, ‘Artificial Screens’ and ‘I’ll Get By’ set for a roaring reception.
