More Than Conquerors Release Debut Album, Everything I’ve Learnt

MORE THAN CONQUERORS set to release their debut album ‘Everything I’ve Learnt’ on 30th September, 2013

New tracks ‘Jaw’ & ‘Try-Antlers’ now streaming


(Smalltown America)


Dynamic Alternative-Punk-Rock Quartet from Belfast, Northern Ireland. For Fans of: Manchester Orchestra, Brand New, Reuben & Twin Atlantic.


“This album is 11 tracks of pent up aggression, frustration, bewilderment and a sense of weird belonging,” according to vocalist / guitarist Platt. “It’s everything we’ve learnt.”


Exploring thought provoking aspects of faith as a central theme for the band’s debut album ‘Everything I’ve Learnt’, the title is taken from the lyric “…everything I’ve learnt amounts to nothing”. Although sounding literal, the record’s name holds a more profound meaning regarding the band’s growth.


Reminiscent of early British post-hardcore (Reuben, Idlewild, Biffy Clyro and Hundred Reasons) and the harmony-driven US rock of Brand New and Manchester Orchestra, ‘Everything I’ve Learnt’ still manages to find its own place amongst these behemoths.


“We chewed up each other’s ideas and collectively spit them out to sound like MTC… We wouldn’t be a band if it wasn’t for acts like SixStarHotel and Panama Kings,” drummer Jamie Neish points out. “Those bands meant a lot to us early on, they gave us the confidence to do our own thing.”


During live performances, MTC provides an enthralling, uplifting and participatory experience for all, from the smallest of European club shows up to the bigger stages, where they’ve already supported the likes of Jimmy Eat World, Feeder, Dinosaur Pile-Up and Twin Atlantic.


“We love being in the studio and we love writing, but there’s nothing better than watching an audience sing along to something we’ve created,” says Platt. “We’re just singing songs, trying to be honest and hoping to find common ground with the people listening.”
