Are an English rock band from Liverpool. The Aeroplanes formed in 2003 when Chris Kearney, Paul Crowe and Stuart Palethorpe decided to bring their previous outfit ‘Loveland 1881’ to a close to take their sound in a different direction. They were joined by old school friend Ian McMillan and the line up was complete. In 2007, bassist Stuart left the band and was replaced by Vicky Edwards. The band released their much anticipated debut album ‘Broken Hearts and Maladies’ in November 2008 to positive reviews.
