    It's Been a While
Formed in Manchester in 2015, False Advertising are dual vocalist / guitarist / drummers Jen Hingley and Chris Warr, and Josh Sellers on Bass.
Fusing killer sweet snarling hooks with a cathartic hit of fuzz-guitar, the fiercely independent trio have developed as much of a name for themselves in the UK as "The ultimate DIY band" as they have for their energetic, instrument-swapping performances.
A whirlwind 12 months have catapulted the three friends from self-recording their own tracks in a garage to making their American debut at one of the most hyped SXSW showcases, being chosen to support Everything Everything and being thrown out of their own Abbey Road session by the studio next door for 'being too loud'. In the process, the band and their most recent EP 'I Would Be so Much Happier If I Just Stopped Caring' have not so quietly won over Mark Radcliffe (BBC 6 Music), Steve Lamacq (BBC 6 Music), Huw Stephens (Radio 1), John Kennedy (Radio X), seen them feature in NME as "ones to watch" alongside coverage in DIY, Mojo, Drowned In Sound, Total Guitar and The Guardian.
Honing their guttural sound whilst touring extensively, the band have racked up sought after support slots along the way with Everything Everything, IDLES, The Garden, The Amazons, PINS and Bob Mould (Hüsker Dü). The band are currently working on new music due out in the new year, which they will begin showcasing with an NME booked date this December.
