Keane frontman and now a solo artist in his own right Tom Chaplin has announced a new UK and Irish tour for next May. He’ll be supporting his debut solo album ‘The Wave’, which was released earlier this month on Island Records in the UK. (The American release will follow in January 2017.) You can read my review of the long player here. Chaplin kindly provided more insight into his new record and the events that led him to write its songs in an interview with me that posted recently on TGTF (read part 1 and part 2 through those links).

Video of the Moment #2202: Blossoms

 
By on Monday, 17th October 2016 at 6:00 pm
 

Stockport band Blossoms are currently in America, playing at the Bardot in Hollywood tonight after a sold out show at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn and another at San Francisco’s Rickshaw Stop. While they’ve been in America, the new promo video for ‘Blown Rose’ has been revealed to the world. It follows a different, shall we say more whimsical video for the song when it was released as a single last year.

In this new video version of ‘Blown Rose’, there’s loads of imagery – lit candles, Catholicism (?) – and I guess naturally for a group of lads, a vampy model-type woman. Is she a femme fatale or a woman scorned? Find out by watching the promo below. Blossoms’ self-titled debut album is out now on Virgin EMI, and you can read my review of it through here. While I was away in Ireland, the band announced a four-pack of shows on the Emerald Isle, stopping in Belfast, Galway, Limerick and Dublin in March 2017, which are on sale now. They’ll be supported by Derry’s Touts, who you can read about in my review of Friday night at Hard Working Class Heroes 2016 tomorrow afternoon. To read more of TGTF’s coverage on the band from Stockport, go here.
