Band will tour in support of debut LP next spring
Chvrches have announced details of a huge UK and European tour to take place next year.
The Scottish trio will play eight shows in the UK in March 2014, before going on to play dates in France, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany and Switzerland. The band released their debut LP ‘The Bones Of What You Believe’ earlier this week (September 23), and the record is also streaming in full now on NPR.
Speaking previously to Attitude about the record, Chvrches’ synth player Martin Doherty said that the band had aimed to give “a bit more spectrum and depth to the record than might be apparent just having listened to the singles. It’s not all big radio hits, you know?”.
Doherty also insisted that he and his bandmates haven’t allowed themselves to become distracted by the growing hype that surrounds them. “We try to keep our heads out of it as much as possible and just concentrate on actually being in a band from day to day,” he explained. “If we started listening to what people were saying, it would influence us and we’d probably lose sight of what we’re trying to do.”
