The award-winning Mostly Autumn return to The Met

On Saturday 23 May, award wining prog-rock band Mostly Autumn will perform their highly acclaimed concept album ‘Dressed in Voices’ at The Met.

Mostly Autumn’s musical palette is diverse, they draw on influences from the golden age of rock, but have developed their own unique sound that both captures the essence of that era and yet looks forward into the future. Having produced 13 live albums and won Best Live Concert and Best Female Vocalist 2014 (Olivia Sparnenn-Josh) at the Classic Rock Society awards the band have earned themselves a name for their outstanding live shows.

 

‘This band plays like a well-oiled machine… The blaring flutes, the inventive bass and cool drums, and the incredible keys are all played with skill and elegance’ Progulator (Dressed in Voices review)

 

Last year Mostly Autumn released the highly acclaimed concept album ‘Dressed in Voices’ which explores the dark concept of a killer forced to witness the full weight of all he is taking away, as time briefly comes to a standstill. They decided this album deserved to be played in its entirety at their gigs last year and it seemed their audiences agreed. ‘Dressed in Voices’ had audiences spellbound and Mostly Autumn were overwhelmed with requests to record it as a live album. ‘Box of Tears’, the live version of ‘Dressed in Voices’, which takes its name from the final track on the album, is due to be released soon.

Tickets £15 advance/£16 door and are available from The Met on 0161 761 2216 or online at www.themet.biz .The show will start at 8.15pm.
