Listen to LP cut Get With Me below

All-caps Manc rockers PINS have announced that their debut album Girls Like Us (artwork above) will be coming out on September 30 via Bella Union.

Ahead of the LP, which was self-produced at Liverpool's Parr Street Studios, where they wrapped it up in a mere week, the quartet have put out album cut 'Get With Me' to whet appetites - have a listen below:

Says singer/guitarist Faith Holgate: “Girls Like Us isn't about being like us, it's about being yourself. I always wanted to be in a band, ever since I can remember, it's all I’ve ever wanted to do to... our album may have been recorded and mixed in a week but it’s been dreamed about for years! We had to be ruthless but we've got each other’s backs, we don't let each other make bad decisions.”

They're setting off on tour later in the year, so you can catch them at the dates below; before that, though, be sure to read our Escape Velocity interview with the band from last year and watch the video for 'Stay True' at the foot of the piece:
