Flechettes are a four piece band from the gritty town of Wigan, in the north west of England. Coming from the same streets as long time friendsStanleysandThe Lathums, the group quickly asserted themselves on the local scene in the summer of 2019 and played many shows in the wider northwest. The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has been bittersweet for the band. In the absence of live shows, they have gained a large following online, thanks to their second single chasing youth, released in August 2020. In February 2021, new single Man of the Hour was released, receiving Record of the Week on XS Manchester, play on BBC Introducing Merseyside, and play on Radio X by John Kennedy. It also featured on Soccer AM in the same week. The band then released their debut EP Ink and Gold on June 21st, 2021, with lead and title track Ink and Gold receiving Radio Xs Xposure Hot one the week before its release, thanks to John Kennedy. The whole EP was then played on the prestigious nationwide US radio show Rodney on the Rock on SiriusXM, as well as also being played on radio as far away as Ecuador and South Africa. In late 2021, the band signed to LA Based indie label SoundX3 records. The boys released their new track Make Your Mistakes via SX3 (published by Symphonic distribution and The Orchard) - marking the start of heavier and harderQueens of the Stone Age-esque era.
