VIDEO: Man Made - TV Broke My Brain


The rising Manchester-based 3-piece Man Made will released their brand new single ‘TV Broke My Brain’ this September, as well as a full UK tour this October.

Having quickly built up an impressive history for such a new band, Man Made have already found themselves sharing stages with the likes of Broken Social Scene, Bright Eyes, The Lemonheads and Badly Drawn Boy, as well as performing at the Reading & Leeds and Latitude festivals.

Owning an innate mastery of their instruments, the trio have an astonishing musical pallet with a natural knack for melody, never more evident than on the forthcoming single release ‘TV Broke My Brain’, an instantly likeable slice of indie-rock that shows the band pushing into exciting new frontiers.

The band’s time spent in the Pacific North West, as well as their native Manchester, has also seen their influences widen to include American guitar bands from the Portland, Seattle, and Olympia scenes, as well as the rainy atmosphere of their hometown.

Now having easily earned a reputation as one of the most exciting bands to watch for in 2014, Man Made are set to capitalise on that with the release of their new single this September, an 18-date UK tour this October, and a show on the NME ‘New Breed’ tour this November.

‘TV Broke My Brain’ was released on September 29th 2014 and the band’s debut album is set for release in early 2015.
