Interview: Auction For the Promise Club


Share This Article:

Three-piece Auction for the Promise Club’s recent debut One met critical acclaim upon its release.

With support slots for Paolo Nutini and Pendulum, the band have wowed audiences with their electrifying live shows and their headline slots are something to behold we’ve heard. BBC6 Music, XFM and Absolute Radio have caught onto the buzz and we’d thought we’d join in too…

Can you give us a brief history of the band?

The band originates from St Agnes, Cornwall. Been going for nearly three years, made three videos and we have another on the way. We’ve also recorded at Abbey Road Studios/Cube Recordings/Sawmills and have played gigs and festivals around the country. We are proud that we have done this all with no management, and a budget of nothing to speak of!

Your debut EP One, it’s received a lot of acclaim. Did you expect it to be this positive?

People have said some really kind things, we are really happy that people have liked this release and hopefully we can build on this as the band develops.

It was recorded at Abbey Road. Did the sense of history help contribute to the album?

It was such a great experience we will never forget :)

Apparently, there’s been some ghostly goings on there in the past. Did you experience anything of the sort?

Nope, the place never sleeps... but I could imagine if the lights were turned off and you had to make your way down from the Penthouse you would bump into a famous ghost or two! 

Did the snow-capped surroundings of Cube add anything too? :)

Gareth Young who owns Cube definitely helped.

You’ve also supported Pendulum, Martha Wainwright, and Paolo Nutini which is quite a feat that many new bands hardly see. How were the shows and who was the better act to support?

All fabulous bands/acts! We were very lucky to have a little slot to play. Paulo was undecipherable between songs! Must have been the Cornish Rattler cider?! 

 Your sound's quite big incorporating elements of shoegaze and anthemic qualities. Was it always this big or did you have a different sound when you started?

I think it’s just seems to have happened like that. 

I guess a lot of people might ask how you came up with the name?

Crap story! Wont bore you :)

Finally, what’s next for you?

We are excited to be playing O2 Academy Islington on the25th March. Then we are recording the next EP in June. Then hopefully touring it over the Autumn! Hopefully we will have some more exciting news for you soon :)
