As you may have noticed whilst walking down the high street, The Rakes’ Alan Donohoe is now the face of Fred Perry. The singer has been chosen as the face of the company’s global campaign for 2007.
Richard Martin (head of Marketing for Fred Perry worldwide) said:
“It made sense to work with The Rakes as we know the band are big fans and wear our product. I think they typify the spirit of Fred Perry… both never follow the crowd and are distinctive in look and sound.”
The Rakes new single ‘We Danced Together’ is released on the 12th of March.
The band’s second album ‘Ten New Messages’ is released on the 19th of March.
