Manchester indie-rock trio, City Reign have announced the release of their first single ‘Ahead Of Ideas’  ahead of the release of their forthcoming debut album ‘Another Step’

The band teamed up with Manchester-based producer Sam Jones for the album, who took them to Sacred Trinity Church in Salford for the recording process as he felt it helped bring depth to the band’s classic guitar sound.

Speaking of the single vocalist and guitarist Chris Bull said: “I think we’re taking a risk with this single, it’s one of the most ambitious tracks we’ve recorded.”

The album ‘Another Step’ is due for release in early 2013 with the band playing the following live dates in support of the single:


2nd – Belushi’s – Edinburgh

3rd – Audio – Glasgow

7th – Viper Rooms – Sheffield

8th – Lomax – Liverpool

9th – Escobar – Leeds

20th – Pop In – Paris

22nd – Winstons – Amsterdam

24th – The Castle – Manchester
