“the caustic post-punk fury of Wire and the Fall, intersected with the hard-nosed abrasiveness of such college radio staples as the Jesus Lizard and Drive Like Jehu. It’s a unique hybrid of heavy, excellently mastered by Shellac’s Bob Weston.”

“Widower has taken me by storm, and it will do the same to you if you’ve got a weak spot for (or a history in) fiercely emotional independent rock.”
Foxy Digitalis

“one of the most grimiest, exhilarating records of the year.”
Pigeon Post

“It’s kind of amazing and that the glue holding all of it together never came apart. And for a record of its style it comes off as incredibly loose, leading to the the spontaneity and nuanced noise that really seals the deal on it never overshadowing the albums many many great melodies.”
Built on a Weak Spot

“the strangulated epic guitars of 'Lost Dog' and the potent alt. rock hooks of 'A Million Butterfly Skulls' find Warm Widow expanding far beyond the sounds of Salford past - it's probably not too much of a stretch to suggest the band stray into territory occupied by the likes of No Age during their most melodic moments. Ace.”
Boomkat product review

“The future’s always grey in Manchester, but with Warm Widow on the horizon there’s at least hope of the clouds lifting.”
{sic] magazine

“Feckin' hell this album is great. A raw energetic tuneful blast of melodic noise from the mean streets of Manchester”

Drive, repetition and intensity from Manchester's most fraught. Two albums made since 2010 containing some of the finest sadness you'll hear - a third, wiser and angrier one is in the making.


23/01/16 @ The Eagle, Salford. With Ill, Bobby Peru.
