Elbow work on new album
1:51pm Wednesday 9th October 2013 in News
Bury band Elbow are set to return next year with a new album and an arena tour.
The five-piece group, led by singer Guy Garvey, will release their currently untitled sixth album on March 10 next year.
They will then head out on the road for a UK tour with a date at Manchester’s Phones 4U Arena on April 9 — their first live performances in over a year.
The album is currently being recorded at Blueprint Studios in Salford, with the production and mixing of the record being undertaken by keyboardist Craig Potter.
It follows their 2008 album The Seldom Seen Kid, which won the Mercury Music Prize, and their most recent effort Build A Rocket Boys!, which saw the band being nominated as the Best British Group at the 2012 Brit Awards.
The band, who are completed by drummer Richard Jupp, guitarist Mark Potter and bassist Pete Turner, will also release their first ever live DVD, Live At Jodrell Bank, which features their headline performance in 2012 at the observatory in Cheshire.
During their time away from the limelight, the group were involved with the 2012 London Olympics with Guy Garvey composing First Steps, the BBC’s official theme for their coverage, and Elbow performing their hit singles One Day Like This and Open Arms at the closing ceremony.
Their UK tour will take them to a number of cities including Leeds, Liverpool and Nottingham as well as a date at London’s O2 Arena.
Tickets for the tour go on sale tomorrow at 9am.
