Inego, an alternative indie band have recently dropped their debut album, Departures. The Manchester four-piece, who collaborated with legendary producer Gavin Monaghan at Magic Garden Studios in Wolverhampton have unleashed this album through their own label, Fight the Power Records. The band spoke with The Fountain about the record and some of their favourite venues they hope to play live again soon.

TF: You have a new LP out, what has the reception been like to Departures

The reception has been incredibly positive so far, and we are all just so delighted that the record is finally coming out and people are enjoying listening to our music and hopefully getting something from it. With everything going on at the moment, in the world, it certainly has been a strange time to bring out a record, but hopefully, it can spread a bit of positivity when people need it most.

TF: Can you sum up the album in a sentence?

A succulent, colourful, eclectic and juicy departure into the aurora and beyond.

TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year, after this LP release?

All of our plans are a bit on hold at the moment, but we hope to tour the record when it’s safe to perform again. In the meantime, we are currently planning some kind of streamed concert as a thank you to our fans, old and new, not to mention everyone who helped make this album a reality.

TF: Where is your favourite venue for playing live, where is the next place you look most forward to gigging? 

We always love playing live in our hometown of Manchester, just because it’s such a musical city and the crowds here are electric and always up for it, but there are just so many great venues to choose from! If I had to choose one, I’d say The Deaf Institute! We would love to play Glastonbury, in the not too distant future, so if anyone out there can make this happen, please do get in touch.
