Introducing The Clause…
The Clause are a 4-piece alternative group from Birmingham founded by school friends Pearce Macca (front man), Niall Fennell (drummer) and Jonny Fyffe (bassist), later joined by Liam Deakin (guitarist) at the start of 2016 to complete the lineup. Described as having a 60’s swagger with an 80’s groove and a 90’s attack, they still take inspiration from the big choruses in current Indie Rock records.
With a handful of singles under their name hailing at around 500,000 hundred thousand streams across all platforms, a string of hometown sell outs including the Institute 2 to a sellout crowd of 550 fans, The Clause pride themselves on their large success, having released all songs independently, with no large radio play, festival slots, sponsors, Label, Agent or Manager.
After selling out their hometown intimate show, where 150 tickets flew out in just short of 2 days, they embarked on a debut headline tour of 4 dates, selling out in Sheffield, Manchester, Glasgow and Birmingham with the majority being self-promoted.
What people are saying about The Clause...
BBC INTRODUCING WM Tim Artsall (O2 Institute Gig)
"That’s the biggest show I've seen from a band in this current movement"
“Birmingham’s brightest new band”
Counteract (O2 Institute Gig)
"The O2 Institute2 is a huge venture for any local band and to sell it out is a huge achievement for this lot...you see the potential for them to be sharing the stage with bigger artists, be that Miles Kane, The Sherlocks or The Courteeners"
The Birmingham Press
"The Clause are going to be a huge success, and I’ve never been so sure of anything since I first heard this year’s Brit Awards winner, Walsall’s finest Jorja Smith"
