Starsailor on Thursday 12th October from 7pm in J1
Starsailor today also announce a full UK headline tour.
‘Listen To Your Heart’ is the stellar opening track from the new album. Lead singer & guitarist James Walsh describes it as, “an energetic, emotional song. I think in doing what we do, you have to be emotion and instinct lead. If every decision was sensible, practical and mulled over, we’d never have done anything or got anywhere. It’s not always easy, so you have to keep reminding yourself.” Of the album and recording process, Walsh says; “Recording the album was an intense and rewarding experience and we’re excited to get it out there.
There’s a good mix of the aspects of the band people know and love, and a few changes in direction.” Their fifth studio album – and first since 2009 – All This Life finds Starsailor re-energised and on outstanding form. They played to an ecstatic crowd in a packed Big Top Stage at this year’s Isle Of Wight Festival and debuted a new track from the forthcoming album. Starsailor play British Summer Time at Hyde Park today alongside Phil Collins, Blondie and more, as well as Hope & Glory Festival in Liverpool in August. Tickets are £21.50 each.
