Boston Manor is a pop punk band from Blackpool, England, signed to Pure Noise Records. Established in early 2013, the band blend emo, hardcore and pop punk with brutally honest and sincere vocals. The band released their debut EP 'Here/Now' in 2013, followed by a split 7" with Throwing Stuff later in the same year. Their second EP 'Driftwood', was released through Failure By Design records in 2014. After signing to Pure Noise Records, the band released the 'Saudade' EP in November 2015. The band has toured with the likes of As It Is, Chunk! No, Captain Chunk!, Forever Came Calling, Moose Blood, Seaway and This Wild Life
Five dudes in a van trying to play shows, drink beer, and make friends.
Michigan’s upper peninsula is trapped under what seems like permafrost for most of the year. This chilling effect makes the landmass more comfortable with stationary lives rather than lives spent outside its natural sprawl. Hot Mulligan may have been born in this green giant, but they escaped its clutches shortly after high school to beat pavement and their own neuroses-at the same time.
Since 2014, the five-piece has gained ground for their earnest approach to songwriting, melding together the ferocious riffs of pop punk’s latest wave with the tenacious vulnerability of indie rock. The marriage is one shared by many bands, but on Opportunities - their latest EP earning a re-release via No Sleep Records - the courtship entangles itself in new territories, mostly in those characterized by cavernous percussion, hooks so buoyant they bob up and down, and guitar and synth interplay that belong to a much older, bolder band.
The future is full of other excuses to keep moving, and for Hot Mulligan, they’re easily jumping at the chance to speed up.
