Buzzcocks Drop New Single/Video "Manchester Rain"

British punk rock pioneers Buzzcocks have dropped the video for their new single "Manchester Rain". 

The song is taken from their upcoming new album 'Sonics In The Soul', set to be released on September 23 via Cherry Red Records. Pre-order it here.

The legendary Manchester punk band need little introduction. Back in 1977, they gave birth to a generation of independent labels with their debut EP ‘Spiral Scratch’. Thereafter, their melodic punk-pop proved irresistible, leading to hit singles and three landmark albums. They broke up in 1981 but reunited in 1989 and have been going steady ever since. Sadly, singer Pete Shelley passed away in 2018 but founder member and the band’s other singer/songwriter Steve Diggle has kept the flag flying. During the COVID pandemic, Steve and co. (Chris Remington on bass, Danny Farrant on drums) busied themselves with recording ‘Sonics In The Soul’. Recorded at Studio 7in London, the album was co- produced by Steve himself with Laurence Loveless.
