Hotly-tipped newcomers Whitecliff are to release the single ‘Five Minutes’ on April 8 – and will appear live in Preston a couple or so weeks later.
Last year saw the North West band become the first signing to The Libertines’ Gary Powell’s label 25 Hour Convenience Store.
Their debut single ‘Everybody Knows’ was released to critical acclaim and followed up in October with the ‘Young Lovers’ EP, which received astonishing radio support from the likes of 6Music’s Steve Lamacq and Chris Hawkins, Radio 2’s Janice Long, Radio X’s John Kennedy and Jo Good (Shock of the New) and Amazing Radio’s Paul Lester (also Guardian), Charlie Ashcroft, Aaron Phillips and Jim Gellatly.
They will kick off this year with new single ‘Five Minutes’ which sees Ken Nelson (Coldplay, Paolo Nutini, Badly Drawn Boy) and Dan Grech (Lana Del Rey, The Vaccines, Circa Waves) back on board on production and mixing duties respectively.

The band, who supported The Libertines at one of their sold out Alexandra Palace shows, played a number of incredibly well received live dates last year (including London’s Old Blue Last and Notting Hill Arts Club) and can’t wait to take their infectious hooks and big choruses on their recently announced April and May UK Tour, which includes a date at Preston’s Blitz on April 29.
