Returning with their first single of the year, Manchester rockers King Kartel release ‘Be Mine’ with a single launch next month.

They’ll be performing at Manchester’s Club Academy on March 6th to celebrate its release.

‘Be Mine’ sees King Kartel swap their riotous indie rock for 50s and 60s inspired “doo wop indie” while maintaining the addictive hooks and anthemic choruses which the band have become notorious for.

Formed of three Irish lads, one Mancunion and a lad from St Helens – Hugh McCreesh, Mo McCreesh, Mick McGuigan, Mike Hill and Joey Williams – the band have already amassed an impressive back catalogue of Top Class Records simply made for turbulent singalongs.

With previous tracks featured across TV shows including Hollyoaks, Come Dine With Me and World’s Strongest Man and leading radio stations, the industry is well and truly locked in to King Kartel.
