QUIET RIOT!

The band delight hardcore fans with a set and a signing session at Oxford Street HMV...

STARSAILOR celebrated the launch of their new album ‘SILENCE IS EASY’ with a storming instore show at HMV’s flagship store in central LONDON last night (September 15).

The Chorley four-piece delighted several hundred fans who packed into the Oxford Street shop with a seven-song set drawn mostly from the new record.

“There’s been a lot of great new bands who have come through since our debut album ‘Love Is Here’,” frontman James Walsh said from the stage. “Thanks for sticking with us.”

The set was:

‘Music Was Saved’

‘Alcoholic’

‘Born Again’

‘Four To The Floor’

‘Telling Them’

‘Silence Is Easy’

‘Good Souls’

Following the show, the band held a signing for fans. Such was the demand to meet the band, that the shop was forced to stay open until close to midnight.
