A 10-date run of UK acoustic shows this December brings down the curtain on another landmark year for the supercharged six-piece.
But there’s no rest for the wicked where Spike and co. are concerned and the boys are back in town from March.
Lauded as their loudest and proudest album for 25 years, Twisted Love screams heartache, passion, tears and tension. And it’s time for the record’s most powerful themes to be unleashed.
“We made this record with a full-on rock and roll show in mind,” said guitarist Guy Griffin. “The songs are some of the strongest we’ve ever written and that comes across best when all six of us are on stage and the volume is turned up.”
Not since the band’s early 90s heyday have The Quireboys sounded so compelling and so relevant. The bittersweet title track, bullish Breaking Rocks and terrific Ghost Train reveal a band going back to the future and back to what they always did best.
And if The Quireboys have proved themselves masters of an intimate and intriguing unplugged experience, then rocking out remains their traditional calling card.
“We played a handful of fully plugged shows in the UK earlier this year and the response to the new songs was tremendous,” added Griffin. “Those gigs gave us the confidence to dig deep into Twisted Love on the next tour and we can’t wait.”
Twisted Love is The Quireboys’ 10th studio album and the sound of a band enjoying a creative rebirth and a rich vein of songwriting form. More than 30 years after bursting onto the UK’s rock and roll scene their incendiary live shows continue to set the standard for the next generation of homegrown heroes.
The Quireboys are: Spike (vocals) – Guy Griffin (guitar) – Paul Guerin (guitar) – Keith Weir (keyboards) – Nick Mailing (bass) – Dave McCluskey (drums)
