"Shhh, dont tell 'em..lets keep this within Our Fold" A group from within a group, Our Fold came together through a shared love of good music, and the lack of it within the small town of Westhoughton. This drew them together socially, and from these times of indulgence the foundations of some of their bigger songs were laid. It was in the Spring of 2005 a conscious decision was then made to form a solid 4 piece Al guitarist and drummer Ryan had begun to jam together and sought the help of established vocalist/guitarist Damien. The only remaining piece was a bassist, Dan a seasoned guitarist turned his hand to the 4 strings of the bass, and the band was complete. July '05 saw Our Fold christen the stage, in an explosive duo of performances within hours of each other. Instantly aquiring a small but dedicated following who made the journey from venue to venue with as much enthusiasm as the band themselves. From here the band have navigated the country playing with many established bands such as Art Brut, The Noisettes, Boy Kill Boy, The Paddingtons, Foals, Bromheads Jacket and The Fratellis, in even more established venues in Britains major cities. Building on these achievements Our Fold have been hailed Local Genius and The hardest working band in the area by local critics. This has led to the enviable achievement of not only making, but topping the NME.COM unsigned chart. This recent hype, and the hard work put in by the band themselves has help build a wider and solid live following. However nothing compares to Our Folds local shows which have been known to end with both the fans and the bands enthusiasm reaching boiling point creating an atmosphere of chaotic excitement. Both through attendance at live performances, and the numerous recorded tracks put down in the studio have attracted interest from people throughout the music industry. This interest continues to grow along with the increasingly large back catalogue of songs. In the beginning it was said that anyone attending a live date, or lending their ear to the bands music in any other form were to be part of this group.
