The 5th of November, bonfire night, and the last Scottish date Chvrches played in their sold out UK tour.
“We know there are other activities you could have done tonight. Fireworks. Sparklers..” says an exuberant Lauren Mayberry. “But you’ll have to make do with a fuckload(large amount) of lasers instead!” Interjected keys player Martin Docherty. And my oh my, it really was an explosive evening to remember. Streams and patterns of multicoloured lasers and strobes dazzled and wowed the electrified crowd throughout the entire set.
This being the bands final UK tour in support of their debut album “The Bones Of What You Believe” at Edinburgh’s Corn Exchange, the crowd of thousands were of course fired up for favourites ‘Gun’, ‘Recover’ and ‘The Mother We Share’. Another great highlight to the evening was when Martin Docherty took the mic to perform ‘Under The Tide’.
The bands new single ‘Get Away’ (out 8th December) went down very well with the thrilled crowd as they jumped and danced along.
‘The Bones For What You Believe’ debuted in the top 10 UK chart back in 2013 and the band became a sensation over night. It charted #12 in the US Billboard top 200 and it has now sold over half a million copies.
Another of the bands new songs ‘Dead Air’ is set to feature in the upcoming hunger games movie ‘The Hunger Games – Mockingjay Part 1’ (out 17th Nov).
It’s safe to say we are very excited by the success of this Glaswegian electronic idie pop threesome, and are very much looking forward to the next chapter.
