Biography submitted by The Cordels.

THE Cordels are the hottest new unsigned band in the country. Bursting with passion, intelligence and wit, The Cordels are already building a formidable live reputation, leaving fans breathless throughout Manchester and Liverpool with their frenetic live shows.

Switching between instruments and sharing vocals, they’re without debate one of the most technically adept bands around today.

Tastemakers are already falling over themselves to play the band’s demos. Radio 1’s Zane Lowe has lent early support playing ‘Lie, deceit’ , closely followed by Tom Robinson at BBC 6 Music, who played ‘Cracks’ - an upbeat steamroller of a track, led by the thunderous drumming of Dave Wimbush. Loz Guest played the band on the Kerrang Radio Unsigned show, and they were then invited to record a live set for Channel M, which was recorded and broadcast on Monday, May 12.

Attracting A&R interest left right and centre for their infectious pop songs, things have certainly took an encouraging step forward so far in 2008 for the band, who are still wet behind the ears, having formed just over a year ago.

Everything is set in place for them to the follow the steps of their North-West peers, including bands such as The Wombats, The Courteeners and the Ting Tings, as they make plans to release their limited debut single later this year..

The Cordels are now set to make their debut appearance at the Maps Festival at Joe’s Bar on the Sunday. It’s expected to be rammed to the rafters, and one is fast becoming one of the most sought-after sets of the bank holiday weekend.

The Cordels are:
Dave McNamara – Lead Vocals / Bass
Steven Taylor – Lead Vocals / Guitar Dave
Wimbush – Lead Vocals / Drums
