Stereophonics – Arena Tour 2013
The Stereophonics are coming back in November 2013 for a 12 gig UK arena tour supporting their new album “Graffiti On The Train.”
The Welsh rock band will open their UK Tour on November 8th at the Hydro Arena in Glasgow and finish at London’s O2 Arena on November 28th. The band will not just hit the UK, but also stop in Belfast, Ireland. Prior to the tour, the Stereophonics will also play in numerous UK festivals such as the V Festival and T in the Park.
The band who had five UK number one albums, released their album “Graffiti On The Train” on March 4th. The album is the 8th studio album and is the first album to be released on the band’s new label, Stylus Records. Prior to the album release, the band of lead vocalist Kelly Jones, released the first single “In a Moment” on November 4th 2012 and the second single, Indian Summer,” was released on January 20th. The upcoming single release is still unknown, but it’s believed to be the self album-titled “Graffiti On The Train.”
As always, rock fans can be excited about this huge UK Arena Tour and surely the Welsh legends will create an electric atmosphere.
Stereophonics – Tour 2012
Stereophonics formed in 1992 in the Valleys of Cwmaman, Wales. The band is made up of lead vocalist and guitarist Kelly Jones, bassist and backing vocalist Richard Jones, guitarist Adam Zindani and backing vocalist and Jamie Morrison from the Noisettes on drums.
With seven studio albums under their belt, five of which have topped the UK Albums Chart, in October this year the Stereophonics gave fans their first taste of the bands new material with the video release of “Violins and Tambourines” – directed by Stereophonic’s own Kelly Jones – from their upcoming album “Graffiti On The Train” – due out in March 2013. The group followed up this teaser with a single from the album “In a Moment” as a free download from the bands website. Kelly Jones said the band were “conscious about starting this record in a different way” wanting to give the fans something that they could keep instead of having to refer back to the Internet for every listen. The 5-minute song, which showcases Kelly Jones’ specialist vocals and the bands powerful driving sound, is about finding hope in life and gives off an almost spiritual vibe while remaining typically edgy and effortlessly cool. If this glimpse in to the Phonic’s future is anything to go by then next years record should be simply sensational. If one thing can be said for the Stereophonics it’s that no two albums sound alike and fingers crossed “Graffiti On The Train” can live up to this reputation.
The Stereophinocs are playing five dates around the UK, all kicking off at Newport’s Centre on the 15th December then ending at London Troxy on December 20th. With support from former Supergrass man Gaz Coombes these shows will certainly not be ones to miss.
