One-time strangers who would go on to forge the closest of bonds, Conor, Tom, Bruce, Peter and Andre came together in the creative crucible of Manchester while studying at university. Hailing from all corners of the country and with a diverse array of musical tastes, as Gathering of Strangers the quintet came together with one shared musical vision. Defiantly ploughing their own furrow since their formation in 2016, the band have become long-established favourites in their newfound home. Selling-out headline shows at the likes of YES, Soup Kitchen and Night & Day, entrancing sets at Dot2Dot and Neighbourhood have also seen them win over the masses with triumphant festival appearances. They have also played support shows with Third Eye Blind, Morcheeba, Electric Six to name a few. Flirting their promise with a more mainstream audience, GoS have released a series of untouchable singles to date.
