Clock Opera announce UK 2012 tour Once and For All - tickets on sale now
Every once in a while, a band that nobody has heard of appears on peoples' radars and never get heard of again. This is normally mainly due to lack of promotion, radio play or feigned ignorance by the public. Clock Opera are unlikely to be one such band - their sound is bold, dramatic and all grown-up, yet they're fresh-faced and raring to go with their debut album waiting in the wings. What could possibly go wrong?
Frontman Guy Connelly began piecing his musical vision together in 2009 and, with Andy West, Che Albrighton and Dan Armstrong, set about making the rudiments of what would form the forthcoming album, 'Ways To Forget'. A quick visit to their Facebook page reveals a lengthy attempt to compare them with their peers but, truth is, apart from Arcade Fire, Foals and Django Django, they've used their imaginations for the most part. They've been lending their experimental twist to the likes of Metronomy, Feist and Tracey Thorn, adding cyclical keyboard tremors and intense epic build-ups.
But it's their own material which will be coming under fresh scrutiny when they hit the road in April for a lengthy 2012 UK tour, starting in Newcastle on the 11th, followed by Sunderland, York and more until Brighton on 29th April. There's a London show in there as well (Scala), with tickets on sale now priced at a tenner or less. Bargains, we love them.
A taster from the new album is available to check out - 'Once and For All' carries serious weight with an emotional video starring familiar actor Dudley Sutton (Eastenders, Lovejoy, Outside Bet).
