"Spaceman" will be the group's third release this year adding to the chart-topping “Proud” and “Truth Don’t Shock” and will be available on all digital platforms.

The seven-piece are signed to the record label of music industry executive Alan McGee – the man who first signed Oasis.

The band is made up of keyboard player Mat Drury, 33, Mark Hillier, 48, on vocals and acoustic guitar, Chris Eardley, 35, providing rhythm guitar and vocals, drummer and vocalist Conal Saha, 48, bassist Mal Flynn, 45, Ed Thomas, 34, on guitar and vocals and Leon Harrison, 35, providing vocals and percussion.

Publicity for their new release says: "It might be a small step from the powerhouse anthems of Proud and TDS but given its raw energy, its popular appeal and its sheer melodic potency, it might prove to be a giant leap.

"The seven-piece indie rock band don’t do half measures but “Spaceman” is emphatic as it gets. It oozes feel-good and confidence and will have you singing “Everybody loves a Spaceman” along with everybody else in your bubble by about the time of the second chorus."

Marquis Drive have also landed huge slot at the Creation Festival next year where the musicians will be supporting Editors and The Happy Mondays in what looks set to be one of their biggest gigs of the year.
