April 2013 sees Earth vs The Wildhearts revived for UK tour
Classic album reaches 20th anniversary with handful of shows - on sale Monday 7th January
Another year and another anniversary of an old album, duly given the once-over by artist, label and critics. But hey, this is no ordinary 'old' album - this is "Earth vs The Wildhearts" and it rocks. And any band that starts an album with the title, "Greetings from Sh*tsville", deserves your attention, right?
Released in 1993, "Earth..." is a fist-pumping debut of sleazed-out rock from a Newcastle band who have had more than their fair share of dramas. Lead-singer Ginger has been the catalyst through the bad, but mostly good, times and wrote pretty much all of this album. From the gentle soothing tones of "My Baby is a Headf*ck" to the carefree gay abandon found on "Suckerpunch" (I'm being a tad ironic, here), the twenty year-old debut begs to be let out of the sack one again for one more tour. And that is precisely what The Wildhearts are about to embark on.
In April, you can catch one of the UK's most enigmatic rock outfits give you both barrels at any one of four rock-friendly towns. Glasgow is the first stop on the 4th, followed by Manchester, Nottingham and Wolverhampton on the 7th. You'll get the full album live, plus a few other odds, sods and off-cuts if you shout loudly enough.
We'll have tickets to all four shows from 9am on Monday 7th January, costing £20 (£22 for Wolverhampton). To quote the tag-line from this tour, "It really is time to take sides again".
