LAMC Productions is thrilled to announce that one of Britain’s best live acts & rock icons, STEREOPHONICS, will return to Singapore, following the release of their latest album ‘Scream Above The Sounds’ on Tuesday, 8 May, 2018 at Zepp @ BigBox Singapore!
Rising from pubs to stadiums, Stereophonics’ accomplishments are near limitless. Six #1 albums. Eleven Top 10 singles, including the chart-topping ‘Dakota’. Headline sets at festivals including Glastonbury, Reading, Leeds, V and the Isle of Wight. Huge headline shows at Slane Castle, Edinburgh Castle and the Cardiff Community Stadium. Tours with David Bowie, The Rolling Stones, The Who and U2. When recently asked what he was listening to, Bob Dylan replied, “Stereophonics.”
Twenty years after their debut Word Gets Around; Stereophonics’ tenth studio album released on October 27th via Parlophone Records follows Keep The Village Alive which went straight to #1 when it was released in 2015 and became their sixth chart-topper after Performance and Cocktails (1999), Just Enough Education To Perform (2001) You Gotta Go There To Come Back (2003), Language. Sex. Violence. Other? (2005) and Pull The Pin (2007).
Scream Above The Sounds was primarily recorded in the band’s HQ in west London with a further session at RAK Studios. Created with the help of regular collaborator Jim Lowe, it’s an album in which creative sonic touches add to the band’s emphasis on songwriting and melody.
While ‘Scream Above The Sounds’ doesn’t consciously reflect on the ‘Word Gets Around’ era, both ‘Before Anyone Knew Our Name’ and the lo-fi ‘Boy On A Bike’ suggest that looking back is the best way to move forward. Regarding the latter song, Kelly states, “That talks about when I grew up in a very small town and having that freedom of being on a bike on a white blanket of snow. That image is something I go back to, to calm myself down when it all gets a bit intense.”
“Kelly Jones has got one of the damn finest voices in rock ‘n’ roll.” – Clash
Now, founding members Kelly Jones (vocals/guitar) and Richard Jones (bass) are joined by the relative newcomers, Adam Zindani (guitar) and Jamie Morrison (drums), along with long-term live keyboardist Tony Kirkham. “It’s like when you think of Ronnie Wood being the new guitarist in The Stones,” laughs Kelly. “That new guy syndrome never wears off.”
“There’s still no-one to touch them for rumbling rockers or perfectly-honed stadium ballads.”
– Daily Star
Stereophonics'' debut album, Word Gets Around, was released in August 1997 and instantly charted at number six in the UK, aided by the singles "Local Boy in the Photograph", "More Life in a Tramps Vest" and "A Thousand Trees", all of which failed to affect the top 20. The band reached mainstream success with the release of Performance and Cocktails (and its promotional singles "The Bartender and the Thief", "Just Looking" and "Pick a Part That's New") in 1999 and have achieved a total of ten top-ten singles as well as one number-one: 2005''s "Dakota". The band have also been praised for their live performances, which have landed them headlining slots at many of the UK and Ireland's most high-profile music festivals, including Reading and Leeds in 2000, Glastonbury in 2002, V festival in 2002, the Isle of Wight in 2004 and 2009, and Oxegen in 2010. Stereophonics will be headlining 2 massive stadiums in Wales this summer along with headlining Scotland’s biggest festival TRNSMT and Britain’s newest 50,000 capacity festival RiZe.
Each Stereophonics album attracts a new legion of young fans who are discovering them for the very first time. What’s more, it’s an audience that’s split evenly between male and female.
