Alt-pop four-piece Only The Poets share euphoric new single ‘One More Night’, alongside announcing a run of UK shows for June. 

Frontman Tommy Longhurst reminiscing lost summer evenings over soaring guitars and pulsating synths. It’s a yearning banger about good times gone-by.

Tommy says, ‘It’s a track about living in the moment. Remembering those nights where nothing else matters and everything felt like it was going to be okay. Those nights, that unknown to you at the time, turned out to be one of the best moments of your life.”

The release follows a stellar year for the Reading band, having played to 20,000 people across 50 shows in 10 different countries, racked up 10 million streams just on Spotify and 150k Shazams worldwide, as well as selling out their UK headline tour (which culminated in an epic gig at Shepherd’s Bush Empire. Due to demand, the band then also played a small ‘Homecoming’ tour, taking in Glasgow, Newcastle, Leeds, Manchester, Bristol and London – all dates sold out. At the festivals, the bands drew the biggest set at the BBC Introducing stage at Reading Festival following the ongoing Radio 1 support.

Only The Poets, comprising of Tommy Longhurst, bassist Andy “Roo” Burge, guitarist Clem Cherry anddrummer Marcus Yates, have established themselves in just a few short years as one of the UK’s biggest emerging live acts. Unsigned until the beginning of 2023, the band’s DIY ethos saw them build things from the ground up, from playing student house parties, pub circuits and small venues to selling out 1,600-capacity venues in the UK and across Europe last year.

Alongside releasing their heartbreak anthem ‘Looking At You’ back in September last year, the band also announced a massive run of 2024 dates for their ‘One More Night’ European tour. Kicking off in Paris on the 6th February 2024, the 22-date tour will see the band play in venues across the continent including Milan, Krakow, Berlin, Prague, Oslo and Krakow, ending in Lille on the 11th April.

Raymond Thomson - Deputy Editor

I am a photographer/musician/engineer living in Scotland. My passion is music and motocross and I share my work on facebook/punk4RT and facebook/madmaxmedia. I do like a bit of throw back to the heydays of the 60’s/70’s/80’s when it comes to taking shots of bands. I grew up on the music papers (NME/Sounds/Melody Maker) and drew influence from Pennie Smith/Jill Furmanovsky/Anton Corbijn/Bob Gruen/Adrian Boot/Charles Peterson.
