Acoustic indie-rock band, Missed You At The Show, are preparing to launch their very first single tomorrow, November 26, at the Manchester Roadhouse. The gig is the final stop in a tour of the North West that has also seen the group play in Warrington and Knutsford. They were even invited to support Manchester based singer Kristyna Miles on her nationwide tour.

The single, Human, is from the band's yet untitled debut album which was recorded over the summer with the Spanish music producer Antoni Noguera. The quintet recorded a further ten songs on the island of Mallorca with this renowned producer, and these should be released in the near future. 

The five-piece are no stranger to Mallorca though, having spent summer 2010 recording a four song EP featuring the songs Small Town, Na Na Na, Summer Song and Suburban Kids. The EP received airplay on many radio stations and was likened to top artists such as Paramore, Biffy Clyro and The Killers.

Formed in 2009, the band won the Manchester Printworks' Band of the Year earlier this year but there's Salford roots all over the place. Missed You At The Show were formed in a Salford pub when lead singer and acoustic guitar player Mike Poplawski met keyboard player and backing vocalist Sergio Llopis Pascual.  They were studying music at the University of Salford. Bass player Suthee Phoncheewin joined a few months later. Then the three members realised they needed a drummer, and after a difficult search, Salfordian Aaron Colton was added to their line up. Finally electric guitar player Shaun Holland became the last member of the group in Summer 2010 and their careers are now in the hands of Salford-based management.
