More Than Conquerors ‘Boots & Bones’ EP

Released 7th November 2011

More Than Conquerors formed in early 2009 and rapidly found community acclaim in the bosom of their native Belfast; the quartet’s charms also won them fans in acts such as: Jimmy Eat World, Feeder, Twin Atlantic, General Fiasco, Fighting With Wire and Mojo Fury – shaping a super-tight live show and garnering an enthusiastic, sing-a-long fanbase.

Signing to Northern Irish indie Smalltown America in early 2010, the band quickly released their debut EP ‘More Than Conquerors’ to an expectant audience. Drawing comparisons to a spunky, early Arctics and the aggressive, cerebral pop of Philadelphia’s mewithoutYou; the record’s sweeping choruses and angular rhythms gained ‘MTC’ recognition within the BBC Introducing platform and on BBC Radio Ulster’s ‘Across The Line’ radio show - surprising many with their ‘Rapture-style punk-funk ‘ and leading to a main-stage appearance at Northern Irish festival Glasgowbury in the summer of 2011.

New EP ‘Boots & Bones’ draws from that same well of inspiration but also broadens the band’s sonic palette. There are audible elements of their much-missed hometown heroes Six Star Hotel on tracks such as ‘A Lion A Man’ and on standout track ‘Hunting For The Whale’ lead singer Kris Platt simultaneously channels the vocal purity of Lindsey Buckingham and the lyrical whimsy of Midlake’s Tim Smith.

Live the band are playful and passionate and undertake their first headline UK run in November 2011 on a mission to turn many more heads and make new friends along the way.  No longer ‘Ones To Watch’ More Than Conquerors may well have just come of age.
