Single play on BBC and independent radio, as well as streaming sites.



"absolutely awesome", "absolutely fantastic", was how BBC Introducing presenter Gareth Lloyd described Dear Acetate. "wondrous vocals" ( "explosive synth-underpinned angular alt-rock". (Vis the Spoon) ...audiences are singing along one moment and throwing dangerous shapes the next.

Since forming, Dear Acetate have performed to thousands, playing with such luminaries as The Proclaimers, The Wonder Stuff, Scouting for Girls and The Paddingtons, and been personally invited by Embrace front-man Danny McNamara to play the Embrace end-of-year party and his birthday bash.

‘Lost Days & Nights’ is the self-produced debut album. 11 tracks. 37 minutes. A guitar-driven, breathless smash-and-grab.
Engineered by the band’s drummer Shane Shanahan, the album was then mastered by the legendary Ray Staff. He included the band into his busy schedule - often spent working with legends that have included Led Zeppelin, The Clash, Pearl Jam, Muse and The Libertines - and inflicted his genius upon this fiery five-piece’s sound.

2010 saw the band being selected for ‘We7 Presents’, an honour bestowed upon only the best independent acts. We7 strive to showcase the top range of new music, demonstrated by Dear Acetate initially sharing the homepage headlines with Mercury prize winners the xx and industry giants Lady Gaga and Snow Patrol!
