Manchester's finest nu-folksters The Travelling Band precede their eagerly awaited second album with single 'Fairweather Friends', available now for free download.
With their shimmering blend of cosmic-country-pop, understated psychedelia, vocal harmonies and nu-folk, The Travelling Band are one of the most talked about artists to emerge from the Manchester music scene in recent years.
The single is the opening track to the new 10 track album Screaming is Something, set for release on May 30th.
