ECHOBELLY + Special Guests – 30th Sept

ECHOBELLY, considered by many as one of the major players in the British BritPop scene, are about to embark on a “post lockdown” UK tour in September and October 2021.

Echobelly debuted in 1993 with their first EP, Bellyache, on the independent Pandemonium label. The favourable response including gushing press reviews and sold out gigs ensured the securing of a recording contract with Epic via their subsidiary, Rhythm King. Their first single from their debut album E.G.O, was Insomniac and the album reached number 8 in the Uk Album charts.

By the time they released their 2nd album “ON” in 1995, they were rising up the ranks of the British music scene, with regular press, tv and radio and two world tours under their belt. The album celebrated the endless possibilities of the human spirit. In “Great Things”, Madan sang “I want to do great things/I don’t want to compromise/I want to know what love is/I want to know everything.” The album’s mostly optimistic feel provides an intriguing contrast with its serious subject matter. As one journalist wrote, “Both music and lyrics examine the tension between order and liberty”. Listeners in the UK responded favourably to the album, driving three singles from the release into the Top 30 of the UK Singles Chart.

It was the response of the sold out Scala show in October 2016 that they decided to once more make a return into the live music field with a new band line up and the release of the album, Anarchy and Alchemy, released in 2017.

In 2019, Glenn and Sonya curated their first album of B-sides, live tracks and demos, the double sided “Black Heart Lullabies” and toured the UK with a pianist and bass player, as a paired down, more intimate live experience. Now they are back with a full band line-up, eager to re-connect with their fans in the live performance arena.

Tickets on sale Friday 4th June at 10am via  The Sugarmill  Music Mania  or Gigantic.
