Bellowhead - New Album and North West Tour Dates

BellowheadBellowhead have today released their latest album Broadside, which will be accompanied by the band’s biggest ever tour.

Like its predecessor, Hedonism, which was  the highest-selling independently released traditional folk album of all time, the new release is produced by John Leckie, who has previously worked with the Stone Roses and Radiohead.

Broadside, their fourth album, writes another chapter in the story of Bellowhead, which began in 2004 when a disparate group of characters who initially knew one another from informal pub sessions thought it might be a good wheeze to pool their widely varied backgrounds, influences and talents and form a big band… just to see what happened.

Even they couldn’t have imagined the results as their  enterprise -incorporating  jazz, world, folk and classical musicians in a swathe of brass, strings, squeezebox, percussion and anything else that seemed like a good idea at the time - swiftly expanded into a gung-ho 11-piece line-up.

Three of the dates are in travelling distance of the North West.  These are listed below.

Fri 16th Nov 2012    Barbican York
Sun 18th Nov 2012    Lowry, Salford
Thu 22nd Nov 2012    St Georges Hall, Bradford
