Stereophonics are set to take their outstanding new album ‘Graffiti On The Train’ for a spin, road testing it on a whistle-stop tour of intimate venues in various UK towns & cities this March including a show here in Wolverhampton. This tour will then be followed by a tour of big UK arenas later in 2013.
In the past 15 years Stereophonics have toured virtually all over the world, chalking up five UK Number One albums along the way. They’ve headlined Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium and hung out with rock’s glitterati from London to LA. The new album will be the first on their own label Stylus records, which is another unspoken hint that the band are preparing for another phase in their career. Jones himself says: “Once the Greatest Hits was done and it was successful we thought, well that bit’s done now”.
It is clearly, if not a reinvention of the band, a reappraisal. It feels like they’re starting again, except with the benefit of nearly two decades worth of experience.
The band will play:
15th Leicester De Montfort Hall
16th Wolverhampton Civic Hall
18th Leeds Academy
19th Southend Cliffs Pavilion
21st Cheltenham Centaur
22nd Portsmouth Guildhall
23rd Plymouth Pavilions
25th Doncaster Dome
26th Blackpool Empress Ballroom
27th Edinburgh Usher Hall
Tickets priced at £32.50 and will be available from 9.00am on Friday 25th January at Midland Box Office: 0870 320 7000 or online at www.wolvescivic.co.uk and other online sources.
‘Indian Summer’ – Stereophonics’ classic new single – comes out February 25th.
