While it’s been 19 years since Del Amitri last released a studio album, their current single It’s Feelings proves that their flair for crafting melodic rock songs with lyrical bite, soulful comfort and heart-swelling uplift has only strengthened in the intervening years. And the reaction has been overwhelmingly positive with the single earning strong support at radio, while early acclaim for its parent album Fatal Mistakes has come from Mojo and Classic Pop.
Now Del Amitri’s return gathers pace with news of their first full UK headline tour since the summer of 2018.
Del Amitri frontman Justin Currie comments, “It’s been nearly 20 years since we toured with a new album, lord knows what took us so long. The prospect of sprinkling our set with a few choices from Fatal Mistakes fills us with the sort of excitement that, for some men of our age, might call for light medication. We think the adrenaline will see us through.”
Formed in Glasgow in 1983, during their distinguished career Del Amitri released four Top 10 albums and a string of memorable hit singles. Their million-selling breakthrough album ‘Waking Hours’ (1989) included the hits ‘Nothing Ever Happens’ and ‘Kiss This Thing Goodbye’. The follow-up, 1992’s ‘Change Everything’, featured the massive radio single ‘Always The Last To Know’ and reached No.2 in the albums chart, only being held off the top slot by the might of ‘The Bodyguard’ soundtrack. 1995’s ‘Twisted’ charted at No.3 and included their biggest ever single ‘Roll To Me’, which reached No.10 on the Billboard Hot 100. After promoting their fourth album, 2002’s ‘Can You Do Me Good?’, Del Amitri went on an indefinite hiatus until 2014, when they reunited for The A to Z of Us Tour. In 2018 they tour with original band members Justin Currie, Iain Harvie, Andy Alston, Kris Dollimore and Ash Soan.
