Reborn rock and roll reprobates The Quireboys will be plugging in and partying hard after revealing plans to roll out the critically acclaimed 'Twisted Love' tour into March and April 2017. The run follows on from a ten date UK acoustic tour in December 2016, which crowned another landmark year for the supercharged six-piece. The full list of dates can be viewed below.
Lauded as their loudest and proudest album for twenty-five years, 'Twisted Love' was released in September 2016, and screams heartache, passion, tears and tension. Says guitarist Guy Griffin of the release; “We made this record with a full-on rock and roll show in mind. The songs are some of the strongest we’ve ever written and that comes across best when all six of us are on stage and the volume is turned up.”
Not since the band’s early 90s heyday have The Quireboys sounded so compelling and so relevant. The bittersweet title track, bullish 'Breaking Rocks' - the video for which can be viewed below - and terrific 'Ghost Train' reveal a band going back to the future and back to what they always did best.
Speaking about the forthcoming dates, Griffin says; “We played a handful of fully plugged shows in the UK earlier this year and the response to the new songs was tremendous. Those gigs gave us the confidence to dig deep into 'Twisted Love' on the next tour and we can’t wait.”
'Twisted Love' is The Quireboys’ tenth studio album and the sound of a band enjoying a creative rebirth and a rich vein of songwriting form. More than 30 years after bursting onto the UK’s rock and roll scene their incendiary live shows continue to set the standard for the next generation of homegrown heroes.
