Michael Head + The Red Elastic Band
This event will take place in EartH Theatre.
62 years of music, loves, losses, long summer days and longer, darker nights are vividly recalled by ‘our greatest living songwriter’, Michael Head and The Red Elastic Band as he plays out flickering scenes from his life on new album, Loophole, set for release on Fri 3 May 2024 on
Modern Sky. Alongside details of the new, 12-track album comes his latest single, “Toxteth ghost story” and album opener, Shirl’s Ghost.
Fans of his four-decade back catalogue and readers ready for a ride through half a century of popular culture, with Head as their guide, will delight in news that his long-awaited Autobiography, Ciao Ciao Bambino: A Magical Memoir, is also announced for publication by Nine Eight Books on Thu 15 August 2024. Matching happiness with creativity and hitching his faith in love to a new era of productivity, Head will release his second solo album with The Red Elastic Band less than two years after 2022’s remarkable, universally-acclaimed Dear Scott.
In a year that pulls focus to the singer-songwriters’ wild life, long career and indelible mark on the lives of his listeners, 2024 will also mark not only the 40th anniversary of the release of his first band, The Pale Fountains’ cherished, cult-classic debut album, Pacific Street, but also 25 years since the release of Shack’s exalted long-player, HMS Fable.
With no shortage of fervour amongst his long-term listeners and those discovering him anew following Dear Scott’s success, fans have the chance of gathering to hear many of the songs that sang their lives with Head on a run of seven, newly-announced UK Tour dates.
