Rock City, Nottingham.

Wigan band ‘The Lathums’ are coming back to Nottingham this week following their recent milestone of their new album “From Nothing To A Little Bit More” reaching number one on the iTunes chart for the second time in their career.

The band shared their celebrations of their chart victory on Instagram in showers of champagne giving gratitude to their 70,000+ fans and followers.

This week they’ll be playing a sold out show at Nottingham’s famous live music venue, Rock City after playing an intimate show earlier this month at Rough trade in the city’s culture quarter.

The group of northern lads grew to fame after releasing their debut album “How Beautiful Life Can Be”, remastering previous singles amongst new tracks which topped the charts seven days later on iTunes.

The Lathums have supported big names in the indie-rock genre such as Paul Weller and Blossoms, as well as performing alongside top UK artists at Reading and Leeds Festival.

They became part of music history after they performed during the COVID-19 pandemic at Liverpool’s Sefton Park supporting Blossoms as part of the government’s trial events in April 2021.

The ‘trial-gig’ invited 5000 attendees to a non-social distanced concert following specific COVID guidance and testing as the government began to open back up the economy after lockdown.

They recently performed in their home town in a rather unique venue, Wigan Roller Rink ahead of the start of the tour. Indie music enthusiast Ella Brooks-Birkett, attended the gig and shared her experience:

“such a unique atmosphere as it is the first time the roller rink has been used as a music venue so it made it a very special hometown show”

A quality that sets the Greater-Manc bandmates apart in the indie music industry is their down to earth character and embracing the true purpose and fulfilment of live music as a couple lads having real fun on stage and their joy and refreshing spirit of their performance is infectious for the crowds that keep coming back.

Ella adds her thoughts on the band topping the charts with their second consecutive album.

“I think it’s great that a band from a small town is getting the recognition it deserves and that it should be more common for all small bands!”
