The Tour is to promote the bands new Album - Missing Peace- released on the Manchester based A1M record label 29th September. All bodes well for a massive “Missing Peace”tour this autumn, brass, beats and classical strings blend with reggae, rap and stunning vocals to deliver memorable performances, you will not want to miss !.
"So if you need music with real grit and substance, here's the band with something to say about the important stuff like life, death, famine, war and love".
Following on from the celebratory, muscle-moving momentum of their single ‘Joy’ earlier this year, what makes The Moods stand out is their ability to share those positive Mancunian vibes whilst avoiding nostalgia and embracing the contemporary.
Their new album ‘Missing Peace’ is packed with socially-aware, often anthemic, ever-intelligent tunes including the single ‘P.O.P’ (Profit Over People) which exposes capitalist corruption whilst keeping catchy. A combination of social sensibility and serious rhythm which shows a refreshing step away from those guitar-heavy bands we may associate with homegrown Manchester.
