The Boo Radleys first live dates in 24 years have been announced, with the newly reunited band heading out for six, intimate shows in late October this year. Starting in Bristol and ending on a celebratory Saturday night in London, the shows come hot on the heels of the release of a digital, four-track EP confirmed for release on Fri 10 September 2021.
The last time original members Simon ‘Sice’ Rowbottom, Rob Cieka and Tim Brown appeared on stage together was at 1997’s Reading Festival, shortly before heading into the studio to record their final album, Kingsize. Now, fans of the band that established both cult status as indefinable, shoegaze adventurers and celebrity profiles as chart-riding pop stars, have the chance to relive old memories as well as experience new tracks live.
Led by recent single, A Full Syringe and Memories Of You, the band’s new EP – including as-yet unheard tracks, Life Is Getting Better, See It Through and I’ll Put The Bars Around My Heart – is promised a full, special edition vinyl release later in the year, with details to be confirmed soon.
The full run of tour dates for The Boo Radleys in October 2021 are as follows:
- Sun 24 October – Bristol, The Lanes
- Mon 25 October – Manchester, Night & Day Café
- Tue 26 October – Edinburgh, Voodoo Rooms
- Thu 28 October – Newcastle, St Dominic’s Catholic Club
- Fri 29 October – Birmingham, Hare and Hounds
- Sat 30 October – London, Moth Club
Speaking about the new tracks that Boos fans are yet to hear, Sice says: “The songs span a rhythmically infused and distortion drenched reminiscence of “one drunken night”, a song about potential loss of life and love and another dealing with the final day of a loving parent, lived in the knowledge of certain separation. Deep stuff, yet set within beautiful melodies and toe-tapping rhythms.”
