ILLUMINATED PSYCH-ROCK FROM MANCHESTER

From deep-fried psychedelic soul to bubblegum power pop, these sounds come from the edge.

The Creature Comfort bring melodies that never fail to stick, sonic intensity, surreal lyrics with universal appeal and full-on performance.

“Should be held in the same esteem as Joy Division, Oasis, Stone Roses.”- Louder Than War

“Great front man – Jim Morrison meets Iggy Pop – a top combination.”- Blackthorn Festival

“One of the best live bands I’ve seen in years.Brilliant energy and great, interesting songs.”- Badly Drawn Boy

BIOGRAPHY

The Creature Comfort formed after singer,  bandleader and “continental hippie” Ben Le Jeune arrived in Manchester from London and abroad and found some like-minded comrades to develop their signature sound.

A long and winding road dotted with trials, tribulations and wilderness years led to their critically acclaimed debut album. Recorded at Elbow’s home Blueprint Studios in Manchester and released in 2013, it featured the infectious lead single Sauce and gathered airplay including BBC Radio, XFM…

The band spent most 2017 writing and recording the songs for their follow-up album, again at Manchester’s Blueprint Studios and also at Giant Wafer in Wales.

A series of singles are now being put out as part of the build up to the second album’s release in autumn 2018. This started in December 2017 with What We Want (Power Corruption & Lies) and continues in 2018 with Alone By Your Side (March), and more to follow.
