More information about Former Champ tickets

Former Champ is a five-piece group from Glasgow, featuring Irish vocalist Claire McKay (Martha Ffion) and members of Savage Mansion, Catholic Action and Secret Motorbikes. 

Channelling the melancholy storytelling of The Replacements, the guitar interplay of The Strokes and the emotive indie pop of Alvvays the band formed in the summer of 2021 after years of talking about doing it. Inspired by both their shared experiences of their home city and their Irish heritage, there are also nods to Thin Lizzy, Teenage Fanclub and The Cranberries in their all killer, no filler power pop.
