CHVRCHES are bringing their dark synth-pop to Alexandra Palace in London on 27 November 2015.
The Glaswegian trio will be supported by Four Tet at the show, which forms part of their first UK tour in over a year.
Tickets for the CHVRCHES Alexandra Palace gig go on general sale at www.gigsandtours.com on 14 August 2015.
The band – Lauren Mayberry, Iain Cook, and Martin Doherty – will be touring in support of their second album, ‘Every Open Eye’, set for release on 25 September.
Preceded by the single ‘Leave A Trace’,the new album comes exactly two years after ‘The Bones of What You Believe’ heralded the arrival of CHVRCHES. Featuring the hit singles ‘Gun’ and ‘Recover’, their debut album went on to sell over 500 000 copies worldwide and set up an exhaustive touring schedule that saw the band perform 364 shows in two years.
During their time on the road, they recorded ideas that would form the basis of a few songs on ‘Every Open Eye’. Approaching the second album in the same way as their first, CHVRCHES returned to the same hometown studio where their debut was created. Their aim: to shut off the outside world and focus on writing.
Starting work in late 2014, the band found and developed riffs, loops, and melodies recorded on the road or started from scratch on the synths, pads, and machines they’d been gathering in their basement to create the instrumentals of the songs. Vocal melodies were developed as the songs took shape with the lyrics added last, developed from words and sentences from notebooks Mayberry had kept on tour.
Many of those songs will be heard live for the first time at the band’s album launch at London’s The Dome on 23 September 2015. If you didn’t get tickets to that sold-out intimate show, you’ll have to wait until CHVRCHES play Alexandra Palace on 27 November.
