Turin Brakes are back on the road next year in support of their forthcoming new album, ‘Lost Property’, due on 29 January 2016.
Olly Knights, Gale Paridjanian, Rob Allum, and Eddie Myer play London’s Union Chapel on 20 February as part of the extensive 21-date UK tour that also includes stops in cities like Leeds, Manchester, and Edinburgh.
Billed as “a collection of dispatches from the elusive side of reality that’s just a twist away from the everyday”, the band’s seventh album showcases their trademark acoustic guitar sound and widescreen harmony textures.
But, with its lush, cinematic production, the record also reaches further. Recorded at Rockfield Studio with producer Ali Staton (whose credits include Madonna and La Roux), ‘Lost Property’ is darker and more epic than its predecessors – as evidenced by lead single ‘96’.
Founded in 1999 in South London by Knights and Paridjanian, the band hit the ground running with the release of their Mercury Prize-nominated debut album, 2001’s ‘The Optimist LP’. Its follow-up, ‘Ether Song’, reached #4 on the UK album chart and featured the top 5 single ‘Painkiller (Summer Rain)’.
Now, 16 years into their career and with seven albums to their name, Turin Brakes continue to tour relentlessly. Catch them at Union Chapel in Islington on 20 February 2016.
