Puppet Theory

Indie rock band Puppet Theory was formed in Manchester in December 2015 by guitarist Johnny Hearldon, who was certain that there was more to the music scene than half-empty venues and promoters with false promises. Along with singer Chris Pickering, bassist Niall Musa and hard-hitting Paul Gallacher on drums, Johnny set about writing catchy, energetic indie songs. Their first EP Buttons, saw the boys likened to The Strokes, Circa Waves and Maximo Park.
