Patrick and Gregory Kane aka Platinum-selling duo Hue And Cry are bringing their stripped back performances to the UK for six dates during May 2018, William Aston Hall, Wrexham when they will co-headline a show with The Christians.
Their new release of masterful ballads and anthems, ‘Pocketful Of Stones’ is their first record of completely original material since 2012’s ‘Hot Wire’. ‘
The album is the brother’s accumulated creative outpourings and observations from the past four years. Always writing from the heart, the album covers a tumultuous relationship with politics, examines their perspectives of love and parenthood, looks at how reflection in oneself can ultimately lead to appreciating what makes you truly happy, and what the shortcomings of failing to live up to modern societal standards can be.
The Christians, who just released an album of reworked classics called ‘Sings & Strings’, have been described as “the Temptations with ripped jeans”, and whose ‘socially-aware soul music’ made an impact on pop culture in the 1980s.
Both bands have celebrated the 30th anniversaries of their debut albums in 2017. Hue And Cry’s debut ‘Seduced And Abandoned’ skyrocketed the band to stardom selling 100,000 copies and spawned the top 10 hit ‘Labour Of Love’, whilst The Christians self-titled debut went to No. 2 in the charts and went double-platinum.
- Hue And Cry along with The Christians will play William Aston Hall, Wrexham on May 18.
