Modern Faces.....on the road to success

A bit of a big up for Modern Faces who were in the local press after their support gigs with Kasabian in May of last year.  Below are updates tour wise for this year and hopefully the North West of England will feature again on the list (a little bird tells me it will be and I'll be checking out The Citadel here in St Helens as a suitable future venue) in the meantime give this a listen like me.

The band were called by Kasabian lead singer Tom Meighan, who wanted them as support at gigs in the O2 Arenas in Sheffield and Manchester.
Gary Heaney from Modern Faces said he and lead singer Lee Montgomery thought they were being wound up.
"We were in the queue at the Corn Exchange for the Beady Eye (Liam Gallagher's new band) concert in Edinburgh when the phone went and the guy said it was Tom Meighan from Kasabian," Gary said.
"We thought it was a wind-up. He said he had heard our music and said it was exactly what he was into. He told us, 'You boys are brilliant and I want to give you some support slots.'
"Everybody's absolutely delighted. In our eyes there's nobody else in the world we would all have wanted to support. It's right up our street."
Although they formed two years ago, drummer Gary says Modern Faces only really became a proper band a year ago after keyboard player James Shields joined.
During that short time they've gained a massive hometown following and have picked up a management deal into the bargain, which has pushed them up the ladder.
