The Clause are a four-piece from Birmingham who bring together the swagger of the 60s, the rolling groove of the 80s and the riotous verve and attitude of the 90s.  Pearce Macca (front man), Niall Fennell (drummer) Jonny Fyffe (bassist) and Liam Deakin (guitarist) effortlessly combine huge hooks with gritty verses, indie sensibilities and rhythm and blues groove and melodies to create an altogether different beast.

The music defies categorisation, rolling seamlessly from crashing percussion to huge, swinging bass. There are epic singalong choruses destined for stadiums and packed festival main stages, and darker, edgier moments evoking late night cruises down dingy back streets. The band have been together since they were kids and they have matured into one of the UK’s most exciting new bands.

The band have hit the road continuously since February 2022 with a series of sold out headline tours as well as main supports slots with James, The Lottery Winners, The Reytons, Pigeon Detectives, DMAs, The Enemy and The Snuts.  They are currently on tour as main support for the sold-out K’s tour.

In 2023 the boys completed tours of towns and cities across the UK including London, Glasgow, Manchester and Liverpool and in late 2024 they will embark on another national tour culminating in a massive homecoming gig in Birmingham.

Last summer the boys played on the main stage of the legendary Isle of Wight festival and had a packed itinerary of festivals and high profile supports including a summer of prestigious dates with the legendary James. This summer the festival diary is again very busy with confirmed slots at The Great Escape, Live at Leeds and Y Not Festival.

The band have been featured, to date, on Radio 1, 6, X and XS as well as Soccer AM & Clashmusic.com. They were also honoured to play on Radio 1’s Big Weekend. In 2023 they released the singles ‘Hate the Player,’ ‘Fake It’ ‘I Don’t Care culminating in the highly successful release of the EP Pop Culture in November. The new single, Take Me Home is out on April 24th.

Their singles have reached No1 in the iTunes rock chart, they have been playlisted by Spotify on All New Rock, Deezer’s Hot New Rock and YouTube’s Your New Alternative´╗┐´╗┐ Playlist. The last three singles have witnessed significant growth with nearly 5 million streams and 60k monthly listeners.

The Clause have had extensive support across all media – Soccer AM, BT Sports, This Feeling, Gigslutz, Band of the Day on Maximum Volume Music and Scottish Music Network among many others, plus a cover feature in the Sunday Mail and two-page interview on the Daily Record. They have also recently been awarded the BMA ‘Best Band’ for the second year running, as well as ‘Best Indie and Alternative’ act.
