CHVRCHES today announce a new set of UK shows for late-April / early-May, Tickets for the new shows go onsale at 9am Friday 1st March via Gigs and tours.
CHVRCHES will release the RECOVER EP via Goodbye Records / Virgin Records in the UK as a digital download on 25 March (via Glassnote in the US on 26 March). The EP will also be available in the UK as a limited edition 12-inch vinyl on 20 April for Record Store Day.
CHVRCHES are Iain Cook, Martin Doherty and Lauren Mayberry – three individuals bearing three distinct personalities on a consummate whole. Combining indie sensibilities and aesthetics with barbed pop hooks and and an unhealthy obsession with Prince, CHVRCHES take elements of classic electronica, hip hop and post-punk, and yet sound like none of the above. Their blend of classic and modern analogue synthesisers, bruised beats and crude vocal sampling came to the fore in their debut single THE MOTHER WE SHARE, released in late 2012, as it did in LIES, their first track that seeped onto the internet earlier in the year. CHVRCHES were voted #5 in the BBC Sound of 2013, and #2 in the UK Blog Sound of 2013.
Tickets for the new shows go onsale at 9am Friday 1st March via Gigs and tours.
