Elbow Album Release Shows at New SlangThursday 17th October
19:00 - 00:00
Presented by Banquet Records
Following the release of their highly anticipated eight full length album titled Giant Of All Sizes, Elbow play two stripped back sets in Kingston. One all ages at PRYZM and an 18+ later on the same night at New Slang. Please check the times below and make sure you purchase tickets for the correct event.
"Guy Garvey describes the album as “an angry, old blue lament which finds its salvation in family, friends, the band and new life.” It is a record that lyrically takes in moments of deep personal loss whilst reflecting its times by confronting head-on the spectres of injustice and division not just in the UK but across the world. It is a record that could only have been made in the 21st Century."
"Given such bleak, if ultimately redeemed, subject matter, it is also, perversely, the most relaxed record which elbow have made in some time. On ‘Giants of All Sizes’, each band member extended their usual process of working on demos alone and followed their vision to its conclusion rather than, as Craig Potter puts it, ‘taking the edges off things to find compromise’. In tandem with this, they returned to playing live in the studio, encouraged to experiment with the banks of analogue equipment at Clouds Hill in Northern Germany, giving songs a looser, more live feel."
We'll be operating on a reduced capacity on this one to make it more intimate and special.
