Saturday, 20th August 2011, 8:30 am

Despite only forming last summer the distinct sounding four-piece have quickly set about making a real name for themselves.

Inspired by bands like The National, Radiohead, Interpol and Modest Mouse, Red Telephone’s early shows included runs to the finals of two North-West “Battle of the Bands’ competitions and prestigious slots on the Hebden Bridge Trades Club’s Christmas Unsigned

Earlier this year the boys took a break from playing live to focus on progressing their ever developing sound and now they are back and raring to go.
