"Should be held in the same esteem as Joy Division, Stone Roses and Oasis" - LOUDER THAN WAR
"Brilliant energy and great, interesting songs" - BADLY DRAWN BOY
The Creature Comfort from Manchester play impassioned music for troubled times, mixing alternative rock with post-punk energy and their own special sauce. Blending might and melody, their sonic onslaught powers a visceral soundtrack for an uncertain future.
They have received airplay on BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio London, Radio X and Amazing Radio, headlined Head For The Hills Festival, and caught the attention of Iggy Pop, Badly Drawn Boy and The Blinders amongst others.
The band was formed by singer Ben Le Jeune after his arrival in Manchester from Belgium in 1987, and they soon built up a cult following, sharing stage with Mudhoney, Gun Club & Stereolab amongst others, and generating major label frenzy. A long hiatus caused by bad management decisions ended in 2013 with a new line-up, a critically acclaimed self-titled album and regular live appearances.
In 2021 the album "Everything Is Hidden" was released, featuring the singles "Alone By Your Side" ('one of the catchiest songs of the year' according to Sounds Good), "Life's A Crime", "What We Want (Power Corruption & Lies)" and "Highway 7", and promoted with a UK tour.
A new album due out in Spring 2025 has been recorded with producer Tim Thomas (One Direction, The Fall, Paul Heaton). A series of singles leading up to this date will be released throughout 2024, along with live dates to be announced.
The Creature Comfort are Ben Le Jeune on vocals, Steve Jones and Paul Hesketh on guitars, Martyn Henderson on keys, Brad Ingham on bass and Will Jaquet on drums.
