The Wildhearts are to issue a new live album. Recorded on 2015's 20th anniversary run of dates celebrating the release of their 'P.H.U.Q.' album, ‘Never Outdrunk, Never Outsung – PHUQ Live’ will arrive on 3rd June 2016 via main man Ginger's own Round Records imprint.
'Never Outdrunk, Never Outsung' was a phrase coined by Wildhearts fan Tom Reed, and the album is named in honour of the London band's audience who are ‘very loud and very thirsty!’ The live album was recorded when The Wildhearts reunited in September 2015 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their most commercially successful album 'P.H.U.Q.', and 'Never Outdrunk, Never Outsung' contains the full original album track listing.
'P.H.U.Q.' (pronounced in obvious fashion) originally released in May 1995, crashed into the U.K. Top Ten Album Chart at number 6. It spawned two Top 40 hit singles, 'I Wanna Go Where The People Go' (which can be viewed below) and 'Just In Lust', which reached numbers 16 and 28 respectively.
'Never Outdrunk, Never Outsung – PHUQ Live' opens with the euphoric clarion call 'I Wanna Go Where the People Go' and for the next hour The Wildhearts play huge riffs and catchy choruses taking the audience on a roller coaster journey continuing to captivate their fans before ‘Getting It’ closes out the set in a riot of chants and refrains.
The perfect document for The Wildhearts' Anniversary tour, 'Never Outdrunk, Never Outsung – PHUQ Live' can be pre-ordered here.
The Wildhearts appear at this years' Download Festival, which takes place at Donington Park from 10th - 12th June. For full information and ticketing visit the official Download site.
