The Courteeners are a British indie-rock band from Manchester, consisting of Liam Fray on guitar and vocals, Michael Campbell on drums and backing vocals, Daniel Conan Moores on guitar, and Mark Cuppello on bass.
Formed in 2006, the band signed to Polydor and put out their debut single, What Took You So Long, which hit #20 in the UK. Their debut album, ’St Jude’, arrived the same year and reached #4 in the charts. After spending years touring and then returning to the studio they went on to hit #6 with ‘Falcon’ in 2012. Their third album, ‘Anna’, was released in 2013, with ‘Concrete Love’, coming out in 2014 and ‘Mapping The Rendezvous’, in October 2016. Their latest release was the acoustic single Modern Love in 2017.
The band have headlined their own shows and tours across the UK and have played festivals such as Reading and Leeds, Isle of Wight, T in the Park and V. In 2015 The Courteeners returned home to Manchester in June 2015 for a massive one-off homecoming show in Heaton Park.
The Courteeners have been confirmed to headline Neighbourhood Weekender Festival in Warrington this May. Before that, the band will perform their debut album 'St Jude' in full at the Royal Albert Hall for Teenage Cancer Trust in March, with a handful of headline shows added throughout spring, too.

Great venue - they should have more acts play there!!
Manchester Castlefield Bowl on July 6 2013
Ive never been to a show at the Castlefield Bowl before so I was quite excited to be watching one of Manchester's own bands play such an intimate venue. What an incredible show it was, superb atmosphere throughout and a very special gig, one that fans will be talking about for years to come. Liam Fray's vocals are superb, whether singing with the band or giving us a performance of his solo acoustic numbers. Great venue, they should put more shows on there.
With one of the most loyal fanbases around, The Courteeners' performance at Birmingham Academy was by far their best yet.
If anybody needs any confirmation of how good The Courteeners are on the stage, check out their shows on Youtube or get yourself to one of their shows. Thousands of people buzzing! The crowd sung along to every anthem and lapped up the new material too. For a band that haven't had that long on the scene, everyone seems to have learned the words to their music already! Looking forward to album number 4 boys.
