The Rolling People release ‘Before It’s Gone’


Before It’s Gone

Packing their hopes and dreams into emotionally-charged, intricately-written flashes of intense, people-moving songcraft, Stockport’s prodigious The Rolling People return with their latest single, ‘Before It’s Gone‘.

OUT NOW on LAB Records.

Watching the world around them collapse into self-consciousness, fear and disillusion, the major-venue-bound four-piece go another step to affirming their youth-borne confidence and infectious, poetic positivity with another three-and-a-half-minute people pleaser.

Opening with fuzzed chords reminiscent of classic early-era Suede, the follow-up to February’s showstopping ‘I’ll Be There‘ single, the first from the band’s upcoming ‘Before It’s Gone’ EP expands to become a rushing wave of interlocked guitar lines and a stormy rhythm section in perfect sync. That sonic rush is wrapped neatly around front man, Charlie McNichol’s impressive, impassioned vocal delivery.

He says of the song,

We wrote ‘Before It’s Gone’ as a continuation of our new chapter as a band, exploring a richer sound. I wanted to write a song that had a massive lifting chorus with a more ballady, but still driving and heavy with the feeling we are on a journey to grab our chance before it disappears. It’s us exploring the idea of living your own life and doing everything you can to reach your ambitions.

Rapidly spreading into the consciousness of escapist music lovers living for the love of communal gig experiences at just 18-years-old, The Rolling People’s live schedule for 2024 grows longer as the road to their own headline date at Manchester’s O2 Ritz this December stretches out ahead of them. Adding to support dates with The Luka State, the band has announced they will join established indie-pop runaway train, The K’s at their landmark O2 Victoria Warehouse date in Manchester on Fri 26 April. Two further support dates with Andrew Cushin and a London headline date at Water Rats on Fri 5 April add to the sense of unstoppable momentum.

With more new music on the way ahead of the ‘Before It’s Gone’ EP’s scheduled completion in early summer, released on both digital and vinyl formats, the band commits to taking the traditional route to stardom via long motorway journeys and in sweaty, eyeball-to-eyeball gig venues. The full list of confirmed The Rolling People shows for 2024 so far is:

Fri 26 Apr – Manchester, O2 Victoria Warehouse w/ The K’s
Sun 5 May – Liverpool, Sound City
Sat 3 Aug – Newton, Newton Music Festival
Sat 21 Dec – Manchester O2 Ritz
