Mallory Knox have announced an exclusive set of in-store performances to celebrate the release of their third album – including one in Sheffield city centre.

The five-piece rock band, from Cambridge, will be appearing at HMV on High Street on Friday, March 10 – Wired’s release date – ahead of a UK headline tour, which includes a show at Sheffield’s The Leadmill on Saturday, March 25.

Defined by psychological conflict, Wired documents a journey of self-discovery for Mallory Knox.

Singer Mikey Chapman said: “Sometimes the biggest part is the realisation you are messed up and you do need to sort yourself out if you’re ever going to find a pathway to happiness, that leads you away from the vices that deafen you daily.”

Tracks include single Better Off Without You, written about the prescription drug Citalopram, used to treat anxiety and depression, and borne out of bassist Sam Douglas’ frustration toward a doctor who took a particularly lax approach to his treatment.

“For something so personal it all felt very impersonal,” recalls Sam.

The band of Mikey, Sam, lead guitarist Joe Savins, rhythm guitarist James Gillett and drummer Dave Rawling will be in HMV from 5.30pm.

Tickets for the Leadmill show are now on sale, priced £16 from
