The Clause are a 4-piece alternative group from Birmingham founded by school friends Pearce Macca (front man), Niall Fennell (drummer) and Jonny Fyffe (bassist), later joined by Liam Deakin (guitarist) at the start of 2016 to complete the lineup. They describe themselves as having a 60’s swagger with an 80’s groove and a 90’s attack. After selling out their intimate hometown show at the Sunflower Lounge to promote their single 'Where Are You Now?', where 150 tickets flew out in just short of 2 days, they embarked on an independently promoted debut headline tour of 4 dates, selling out in Sheffield, Manchester, Glasgow and the 600 capacity Institute 2 in Birmingham. BBC INTRODUCING WM Tim Artsall (on the o2 institute 2 sell out) "That’s the biggest show I've seen from a band in this current movement" Counteract (o2 Institute 2 Headline) "The O2 Institute2 is a huge venture for any local band and to sell it out is a huge achievement for this lot...you see the potential for them to be sharing the stage with bigger artists, be that Miles Kane, The Sherlocks or The Courteeners"
