'Man Alive' group are 'the band Howard Donald has been waiting for'

Everything Everything have discovered they have some very famous – if unlikely – admirers in Take That.

The band, who released debut album ‘Man Alive’ this week (August 30), told NME that Howard Donald got in touch to let them know the band have been raving about their music.

Howard from Take That emailed us out of the blue and just said he really liked us,” explained frontman Jonathan Everything in a video interview you can watch on the right now.


“[He said] We’ve got all the rhythm he’s been waiting for or something like that, we were just gob-smacked! He’s the best one, apart from Gary [Barlow] and the others [laughs]. Apparently Gary is into it now. It’s amazing that they’d seek us out, we do really like their music.”
