A Raghunter Exclusive | The Wanton Bishops: Pre-Tour Preps

Fashion scene

Alright Wanton Bishops fans, we hope you're ready for this.

We've partnered up with The Wanton Bishops to bring you exclusive fashion content you won't see anywhere but Raghunter.

That means you'll be seeing an exclusive fashion angle for all the band's new upcoming material, music videos, shows and tours (ahem: new EP release in September) - with a special focus on Nader Mansour, the main man behind it all. *Squeal*.

As of now, Nader, Salim Naffah (of Loopstache), Pascal Semerdjian (of Postcards) and Antonio El Hajj Moussa are officially off on their 2016 Summer Tour - and we caught them before they left. They let us in on their last minutes in Beirut as they prepped to hit Glastonbury in the UK, Solidays in France, The Wild Mint Festival in Russia and more.

Check it out, enjoy, and don't forget to subscribe to Raghunter to get all Raghunter X The Wanton Bishops exclusives first.


A RAGHUNTER EXCLUSIVE

THE WANTON BISHOPS: PRE-TOUR PREPS

In what is our first exclusive feature together, we caught the boys at their last band rehearsal, we went to Nader's house (one he shares with his band/roommate Salim) as he packed, and we hung out with them on their last night as they went off to the airport.

Here's a quick look in video.

By the way, although Eddy is not officially touring with the boys, he's still part of the creative process with all the music. The guys even have somewhat of a pre-tour ritual going where Eddy comes by for a last drink with Nader and the boys and he drives them to the airport to see them off. Cue a big red heart.

So for starters, getting in on The Wanton Bishops's last rehearsal was the most insane part of our time with them. We got a sneak listen at some of the material coming up on the new EP - and bear with us as we try really hard to contain the excitement - but it's so effing good. It's still loud and stompy. But it's evolved, it's progressed. You'll get your first listen when they launch their EP at Wickerpark 2016 - don't miss it.

And as their music has evolved, so has their style. And by 'their', we mean Nader's style. As the lead of the band, the way he dresses trickles into the way the guys dress too. We've seen his style move over the years from simple black tees with jeans to a much more sophisticated feel today. He's got those crisp black and navy shirts with tailored suits, lots of gold rings and accessories - including vintage watches that his father owned back in the 70's. Don't worry ladies, he's still got that beard and all those tattoos.

Here goes.
