After an incredible summer of brilliant gigs all over the UK, The Moods are coming home to launch their highly-anticipated debut album.

On the 8th September, The Moods bring their electrifying live show to Manchester’s landmark, O2 Ritz. The gig heralds the forthcoming release of Missing Peace, their thought-provoking, and innovative new album. (Released in Physical & Digital formats on A1M records September 9, 2017).

P.O.P. (Profit over People), is the new single to come off the album and is an addictive anthem with a powerful message. At a moment in time when music is a crucial part of the push for social change, this breathtaking track is both resonant and relevant. Missing Peace showcases The Moods’ talent for producing mighty music with substance and grit. The Moods will make you dance, and then they’ll make you think.

The Moods are a ten-piece collective of producers, poets, and musicians from Manchester and the North West. Combining drum & bass, reggae, hip-hop and EDM, their music sparks off a contagious need to dance. This summer, the band’s live act got even greater with the welcoming of Alice, a classically-trained violinist, to the family; her stunning strings bring a whole new level to The Moods’ already awesome performance.

“[The Moods] are a truly down-to-earth band with an infectious charisma that creates a visible brotherhood on stage. Each one feeds off the others, elevating the energy with each song.”
Dana Miller, The Music Site

The Moods’ first single, JOY, was met with critical acclaim, prime time radio airplay, tens of thousands of streams and stellar reviews. And the thought-provoking video to accompany the single, starring Steve Evets (Looking for Eric) has been entered for the BFI London Film Festival.

The Moods music will feature in a Major UK film, Strangeways Here We Come. Set in Salford, this dark-comic feature stars; Michelle Keegan, No Offence star, Elaine Cassidy, Bafta winner, Lauren Socha and former East Ender, Nina Wadia. The inclusion of two of the moods tracks was a recommendation of Terry Christian, and testament to the fact that their sound captures the atmosphere of northern urban life. The film is set to be screened in 50+ cinemas across major UK cities in spring of 2018.

Catch The Moods at the O2 Ritz on 8th September for their most raucous gig yet. In autumn, look out for more live shows as this phenomenal live act spread their message far and wide.
