Turin Brakes are BACK baby! The band have just announced a new UK tour in support of the next Turin Brakes album, which will be called WIDE-EYED NOWHERE. The press blurb, which can be viewed on the listings for a lot of the tour dates says:
2022 sees Turin Brakes release their ninth studio album – Wide-Eyed Nowhere. The band will play a handful of festivals over the summer, followed by an extensive UK concert tour starting in September; ‘There’s always something magical between band and audience at our live shows and we can’t wait to get out and see everyone again… we’ve really missed it!’
Of Wide-Eyed Nowhere the band say ‘We surprised ourselves with what came out; a sweeter, groovier set of songs in no hurry to be anything but themselves.’ The South London 4-Piece comprising Olly Knights, Gale Paridjanian, Rob Allum and Eddie Myer recorded this new set of songs at Twin Palms – Olly’s garden studio – over the summer of 2021, choosing to let time infuse into the music and mature in a way it couldn’t in a pressurised commercial studio setting.
‘Friends would visit, kids would add a voice or two, bees would buzz and we’d get to sit in the South London sun while the music poured out of the speakers and floated across the lawn. Sometimes we decided it’s okay to just let it happen naturally, not to try too hard – just get out of the way let the songs take shape, and that maybe you don’t have to be in a bad place to make the deeper cuts.’
Here’s the tour poster. We’ll add the dates to the upcoming live dates page over the next few weeks:
More details on the album will be revealed later.
