Altered Images tour starts Friday

Altered Images will celebrate the release of ‘Mascara Streakz’ by playing the following headline shows

The 39-year gap between Altered Images’ previous album, ‘Bite’, and the recent release of ‘Mascara Streakz’ is one of the longest in the history of popular music. But previewed by a host of dazzling disco dancefloor fillers – including the title track, ‘Beautiful Thing’, ‘Glitter Ball’ and ‘Home’ – Clare Grogan has ensured that ‘Mascara Streakz’ has been worth the wait.

The album was greeted with a wealth of critical acclaim en route to achieving a Top 30 chart position, while Clare has returned to the spotlight as if she has never been away with interviews including Steve Lamacq (6Music), Ken Bruce (Radio 2) and Radio 4’s Loose Ends.

Altered Images launched the album alongside its new focus track ‘Double Reflection’. It’s an enticing, instantly addictive electro-pop banger which provides a taste of what to expect from the record as a whole, as if ‘Fever’-era Kylie was fronting a collab between New Order and Pet Shop Boys. It was co-written by Clare with its producer, Altered Images alumni Stephen Lironi.

Other key collaborators across the album include Bernard Butler, who was recently nominated for a Mercury Prize with Jesse Buckley for ‘For All Our Days That Tear the Heart’, and Robert Hodgens of The Bluebells.
