More Info

Man The Lifeboats began life in a shanty punk folk moshpit in 2016. Skinny Lister and Holy Moly & the Crackers were the two bands that lit the fire and blew the roof of the Garage that night. Fast forward 6 years and 100 gigs and counting and Man The Lifeboats are an established band ploughing their furrow on the festival circuit, winning over audience sat Warwick, Swanage, Beardy Folk, Folk in a Field, Bearded Theory, Deepdale and more, drawing comparisons to Bellowhead, Waterboys, Oysterband, the Levellers, and those folk punk heroes the Pogues. 

The second album Soul Of Albion hit no27 in the Official Folk Charts in 2022. Recorded at Rockfield Studios "It sounds like Led Zeppelin arm wrestling Shane McGowan in a Birmingham brewery, like Jimbob and Fruitbat fronting Fairport Convention, like The Albion Band turned up to 11 with their fiddles on fire. Tonic for these troubled times." PRESS QUOTES "9/10. A stomping musical cocktail of alchemic proportions" OUTLINE MAGAZINE "Sounds like The Men They Couldn't Hang at their height meet The Clash it's a belter" FOLKING.COM "Think The Pogues in overdrive with the breath of the Dropkick Murphys down their necks" TURN UP THE VOLUME "Superior Stuff" CRACK MAGAZINE “Excellent album, full of high octane folk and dark rumination” AMERICANA UK “An atmospheric and searching saga” SONGWRITING MAGAZINE “Combining swirling punk folk with biting politics. My kinda band.” TURN UP THEVOLUME
