November 11, 2023

Matt McManamon is the former vocalist and songwriter of The Dead 60s. Releasing their s/t debut in 2005, the band scored 5 UK top 40 hits and surpassed over 100k sales in the UK alone. During his tenure as frontman, McManamon toured with the likes of Morrissey, Kasabian, and Deltasonic label mates The Coral, appearing on stages from Glastonbury to Top of the Pops. Prior to launching his solo career, Matt also toured with The Specials as their live guitarist.

Returning with his first music in nearly 15 years last year, Matt McManamon released his debut solo album: ‘Scally Folk’ to glowing reviews in 2021. Stepping away from the Ska-addled sounds of his former band The Dead 60s, it’s an album that sees McManamon retracing his formative years and included previous singles “Every Time I Close My Eyes” and “Jumpin’ The Gun” among its many highlights.
