After a short break, The Spase returned with a live show at the Night and Day Café. It was also the first time playing in Manchester.
The band did a short, comprehensive set, spanning songs from both of their studio albums and one of their most recent releases “My Heart Will Always Orbit You.”
The set list contained:
- Do You Still Love?
- The Black Horse
- When Nearly Is All That You Can Do
- Deja Vu
- My Heart Will Always Orbit You
- She Wears Me Like A Hug
The Spase’s next release, “My Heart Will Always Orbit You”, will be released on Monday 23rd April. We’ll update you the links for streaming and digital retailers as they become available.
Andy and Peter appeared on Halton Community Radio’s “Sounds of The Universe“, hosted by Mathew McMahon.
Mathew gave the new track its first play and discussed up coming gigs that the band have organised.
The Spase returned in fantastic fashion, testing new material and playing some favourites to a packed Studio at The Brindley.
With over 120 tickets sold, this meant this was one of the biggest crowds the band had played for.
New songs from the forthcoming album included:
- Déjà vu
- My hand
- When nearly is all that you can do

The reveiws of The Spase’s performance, in support of Chasing Infinity and The Fireflys, are now being published. The first of the reviews comes from Radio Show and Music Blog “Ralph’s Life” (fruitbatwalton.blogspot.co.uk).
The night kicked off with a set by local band The Spase who are currently performing as a stripped back two piece, which suits their poetic and insightful songs perfectly. The idiosyncratically named Wax and P took us on a melodic journey of well crafted lyrics and musicality with this lo-fi performance.
The Spase were never going to blow our ears off, but that was the joy of their short but exquisite set. Strong songwriting brought to us by solid and heartfelt vocals. Having just released an album called ‘On A Cloud‘ recently, I’ll be investigating further and of course playing a track on the Radio KC Indie Show soon.

The latest review of our gig at The Brindley comes from Andrew Goodwin of the New Music Ear Blog.
…when the chance arose to go to my first gig in years, almost on my doorstep at The Brindley, Runcorn it was a no-brainer. Including The Spase and Chasing Infinity, who I’d also covered in print for a “Cheshire Rocks” article in InCheshire and Prestbury Living magazines, it had to be done!I decided to drag my brother Mike along, thinking he would appreciate an Acoustic gig as he has played guitar in a few bands over the years. I went only as a fan, to enjoy myself, to relax and have a “quiet night” out for the first time in a long while! I wasn’t going to do a review but I thought, why not, it was such an amazing gig, I’ll give it a try.
The review continues:
The Spase were first onto the stage, Andy and Peter got the crowd bubbling with a fine set. The songs which I had listened to regularly on YouTube, “A Roaming Son” and “The Shooting Star” were delivered with supreme accuracy, and for just two guys, they really owned the stage. They had a couple of laughs with the audience and showed what down-to-earth guys they were and incredibly talented. Andy’s vocals were complimented on by my brother Mike, I was thinking he was going to be impressed tonight, and the bands were not going to disappoint!

To coincide with The Spase’s first album release the band will be hosting a small launch party at a venue in Widnes.
On Saturday 8th March the band will be at the Ring O’Bells Pub in Widnes. The evening will consist of an intimate playing of each of the tracks of the album with showings of their current music videos along with the premier of their latest offering!
Doors are from 8pm and entry to the venue is free. We hope to see as many people there as possible so that we can thank you all for the support you have given the band!
The debut album, ‘On a cloud’ of Indie band The Spase is out now for purchase and is available from iTunes and Amazon the album from Monday 10th March.
One review calls the album “A lo-fi approach to great song writing, harking back to the 80s with some instant hooks and soaring medlodies.”

To coincide with the release of The Spase’s debut album, a video for the song ‘A roaming son’ is now available. The song is intended to be the first single from the album.
The video was filmed over a day in and around Widnes and Runcorn with the help of friends and family! The band really appreciate all the help and effort provided.
