The Filthy Souls, young, indie-rockers out of Manchester, England, possess a creative maturity beyond their youthful experience and its that maturity that drives their music and performance. Their strength of voice transcends any era classification while still giving just a wink toward their own musical influences. Their obvious appeal to U.S. audiences comes from, as the Sunday Telegraph Australia calls it the mix of a bit of Indie pop and dirty sexy rock!
Back in the UK, the band became regulars on the music scene, playing everywhere from the small pubs in Wigan, to the auspicious Manchester Academy 3. Crisscrossing the British Isles, they hit the festival circuit, opening for such artists as Tim Burgess of the Charlatans, Finger Eleven and Cage The Elephant. During this time, Green notes, We were all about the music, not just playing, but making it a part of our very being, and giving that to the fans.
As with any ambitious group of Brits, success on the isle isn't enough. So, next up for the band . . . Invasion USA. In July, 2008, The Filthy Souls flew to the States to tour Los Angeles, San Diego and Las Vegas, playing such notable venues as The Viper Room, Key Club, The Roxy, and Club Moscow. Following their tour's success, they self-released their debut single Boys Will Be Out for a Fight in November 2008, followed by the EP, Save Me in February 2009.
The music of this Brit rock/pop group has already been featured on American TV. The Filthy Souls have been heard on the 2009 season of One Tree Hill, Vanished and ABCs Greek. The band was actually written into the script for ABC's hit comedy 10 Things I Hate About You. The Filthy Souls have recently made live appearances on Manchesters Channel M, as well as having been heard in radio interviews with L.A.'s Camp Freddy on Indie 103.1, NPRs KCRW Los Angeles, Tom Robinson on BBC 6 Introducing and on Manchesters Key 103.
The buzz is electric, the excitement is building, and the momentum is launching this indie-rock band straight into the heart of the music industry. Now is the time to stand up, let go, and experience The Filthy Souls.
