Never miss another 'CHVRCHES' show
CHVRCHES have announced a major UK tour for March 2014, culminating in their biggest UK headline show to date at The Forum, London!
In little more than twelve months CHVRCHES have come out of nowhere to be everywhere. There’s a lot to catch up on since they posted their first song, LIES, online last spring – a place in the top five of the BBC Sound of 2013, sell out headline tours in the UK and US, a triumphant, award-winning appearance at SXSW and a string of stadium dates with Depeche Mode, to name but a few.
This event takes place at O2 Academy Newcastle, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
CHVRCHES are Iain Cook, Martin Doherty and Lauren Mayberry - three distinct individuals bearing three distinct personalities on a consummate whole. Combining indie sensibilities and aesthetics with barbed pop hooks and and an unhealthy obsession with Prince, CHVRCHES take elements of classic electronica, hip hop and post-punk, and yet sound like none of the above. Their blend of classic and modern analogue synthesisers, bruised beats and crude vocal sampling comes to the fore in their debut single The Mother We Share, as it did in Lies, their first track that seeped onto the internet in mid-2012.
