The Psychedelic Furs to perform in Bristol as part of 2021 tourPosted on: 29 Jul 2020
The band's latest album, Made of Rain, is out on Friday 31 July.
Veteran rockers The Psychedelic Furs have announced a short UK tour for 2021, set to take them to some of the nation's favourite stages in support of their eighth full-length studio album.
Following opening gigs at the Royal Albert Hall in London and Rock City in Nottingham, the band will perform live at Bristol's O2 Academy on Thursday 29 April 2021. Tickets are on sale now and can be found here.
Having come together at one of the most exciting points of England's emerging punk scene of the late 1970s, The Psychedelic Furs found international success with their early releases, including their self-titled debut album in 1980 and Talk Talk Talk in 1981.
Led by enigmatic frontman and songwriter Richard Butler, The Furs won fans around the world with their combination of poetic lyrics, innovative instrumentation and infectious melodies.
Through the 1980s the band grew their fanbase both in the UK and the US, charting on both sides of the Atlantic with 1984's Mirror Moves and Midnight to Midnight in 1987.
Now, thirty years on from their 1980s heyday, the band continue to tour worldwide, and will be celebrating the release of their first full-length album since 1991, titled Made of Rain, on Friday 31 July.
With four singles released so far, including 'No-One', 'Don't Believe', 'You'll Be Mine' and 'Come Ye Faithful', Made of Rain represents the eagerly-awaited return of the classic Psychedelic Furs sound.
Made up of Richard Butler (vocals), Tim Butler (bass), Rich Good (guitar), Mars Williams (saxophone), Amanda Kramer (keyboard) and Paul Garisto (drums), Psychedelic Furs remain one of the best-loved live bands to have come out of the British punk era.
As well as shows in London, Nottingham and Bristol, the band will perform in Glasgow, Liverpool, Manchester and Cambridge as part of their 2021 tour.
Tickets for the Bristol show at the O2 Academy on Thursday 29 April are on sale now and can be found here.
