Spector headlined the first night of Ray-Ban’s Envision Tour at Manchester's Deaf Institute last night (May 14).

The band played a short set comprising mainly of the singles from their 2012 debut album 'Enjoy It While It Lasts'.

Spector's last Manchester jaunt saw them play the city’s 1,500 capacity HMV Ritz venue and frontman Fred Macpherson told NME after the gig that playing the Deaf Institute again was a "glimpse into the past", and reminded him of the group’s early shows.

The evening began with Cheltenham’s Young Kato warming the gathering crowd. The band showcased their forthcoming single 'Something Real', as well as tracks from their self-titled EP, which was released last year.

The Ray-Ban Envision Tour sees four other emerging acts take to the stage at events across the country. Also playing will be Theme Park, Splashh, Willy Moon, and then a very special guest to mark the series’ culmination.
