The Fireflys Release New Single 'Runaway'

Fireworks Magazine has labelled them "The UK's answer to Counting Crows", whilst Mike Peters of The Alarm recently said on live TV that the band "are a good mix of REM and The Gin Blossoms".

Runaway is the first single release taken from the bands upcoming 5th album “Only Us, Northern Lights” and due out in Autumn 2018 on Strawberry Moon records.

The Fireflys are a UK-Americana/Alternative band from Runcorn, North-West England. The band are Lee Wylding (vocals/guitar), Sam Bramhall (bass), Chris Tann (piano), Andie Packer (drums), Joe Paul Forber (acoustic guitar) & Phil Conway (guitar).

Marking the beginning of a new generation of UK Americana/alternative guitar based bands, The Fireflys are indebted sonically to the likes of Neil Young and Tom Petty, to more recently R.E.M. and City & Colour.

The band are regularly played at Old Trafford stadium on Matchdays and features on MUTV, BBC Manchester and That's Manchester TV have afforded the band a cult status in England.
