Turin Brakes set to return to The Apex next month

Turin Brakes (pictured above) return to The Apex, in Bury St Edmunds, next month, to mark the release of their ninth studio album, “Wide-Eyed Nowhere”.

The group that made folk rock fashionable again, the band lace their melodic acoustic musings with a healthy dose of indie, mind blowing vocals and awesome guitar.

Of “Wide-Eyed Nowhere” the band say: “We surprised ourselves with what came out; a sweeter, groovier set of songs in no hurry to be anything but themselves.”

The South London four-piece comprising of Olly Knights, Gale Paridjanian, Rob Allum and Eddie Myer recorded this new set of songs at Twin Palms – Olly’s garden studio – over the summer of 2021, choosing to let time infuse into the music and mature in a way it couldn’t in a pressurised commercial studio setting.

One of the finest indie bands this century, Turin Brakes released the Mercury Prize shortlisted “Optimist” LP in March 2001 (achieving gold status in the UK), followed up by 2003’s “Ether Song” which featured the top five hit single “Pain Killer (Summer Rain)”.

The band has since moved on to rack up seven top 40 singles, seven top 40 albums and over a million record sales worldwide.

Twenty years of touring have sealed their reputation as a fearsome live act, able to hold any size crowd with their no-hidden-tricks direct onstage presence.

They are at The Apex, on Wednesday, December 14, at 8pm. Tickets are available fromwww.theapex.co.uk or 01284 758000.
