Fears Chella are a band based in Manchester/Stoke-on-Trent. Led by Vocalist Andy Gannon, Fears Chella was born when he and bassist Tom O’Neill found guitarist Chris Hewitt and drummer Ben Tansey to complete their 90s indie influenced sound.

In June 2016 the band released their debut single ‘Cool’ which rapidly earned them BBC Introducing’s ‘Record Of The Week’ and amassed thousands of plays online within just a week. Having been holed up in their own ‘Chella studios’, the band have now written stacks of songs and are currently working on recording the material.

A host of guitar riffs that travel between the styles, the chords are loaded with enough fire power to set off hordes of mosh pits, with a chorus that demands nothing less than pure madness.

I was introduced to this band by a friend of mine who usually tells me about bands and I’m not a fan of them usually, but she did well with this one though.
