CHERRY GHOST ANNOUNCE NEW TOUR DATES IN MARCH 2011

Beginning at Birmingham’s Glee Club on the 14th and ending at London’s Union Chapel on the 17th March 2011

With the release of the critically heralded second album ‘Beneath This Burning Shoreline’, a sold-out headline tour, key festival appearances and support slots with Doves and The Coral, 2010 has been an incredible year for Cherry Ghost. It is therefore with great excitement that we announce four new live dates including Manchester Cathedral on 16th March and London’s Union Chapel on the 17th March 2011.

Beneath This Burning Shoreline’, one of Q magazine’s Albums of the Year, unveiled a band who have further crafted a rich and distinctive sound, still founded on lyrical poeticism yet more refined and assured. The stirring and expansive new material slots seamlessly alongside their previous body of work, ‘Thirst For Romance’, and this is a unique opportunity to watch the band amongst such revered surrounds. With the hushed intimacy that these venues invoke, Cherry Ghost’s music will truly be brought to the fore.

Tickets are now on sale & available from the links below.

Beneath This Burning Shoreline, one of the albums of the year …

10.0 | Subba Cultcha

Cherry Ghost continue to tell ugly truths beautifully combining the beauty of Elbow with the intensity of The National. Like any craftsman worth their salt they take their time to produce the goods but it is always well worth the wait’

8.5 | BBC

’Although the word classic is heavily overused in reviews, there is a true class to these stately, story-boarded song’

8.0 | The Independent

With songwriter Simon Aldred maturing at an alarming rate, Beneath This Burning Shoreline suggests the Bolton combo may be the Tindersticks of their era’

8.0 | Q

Beautiful songs about real life, sometimes too understated for their own good’

8.0 | The Fly

For those of you with patience, this is an enrapturing listen’

8.0 | music OMH

The leap in quality is astounding — although there was nothing much wrong with Thirst For Romance, the change in direction has done Cherry Ghost a power of good’

8.0 | The Music Fix

Clever, intriguing and just plain gorgeous Beneath The Burning Shoreline will no doubt top a few critic’s “Best of ’10″ lists and rightly so. Cherry Ghost are on fire’

8.0 | The Quietus

The album’s most immediate moment, ‘Black Fang’ is stompingly cheery and neatly odds with the prevailing heavy heart. Curious to note that ‘Black Fang’ sits 10 songs into this impressive collection’

8.0 | Independent on Sunday

Blue Nile fans, solitary and yearning as is their lot, should pay attention’

8.0 | God Is In The TV

An album that will feature heavily in the soundtrack to listener’s lives’

8.0 | The Skinny

Juxtaposing unpleasant subject matter against beautiful orchestration has always been Cherry Ghost’s stock-in-trade’

8.0 | The Guardian

Cherry Ghost are good at purveying glimpses of seedy lives and exceptionally good arrangers of strings, guitar and thrumming synths into gorgeous symphonic pop’

8.0 | Uncut

Impressively balances ambition and beauty’
