Indie rockers The Horrors announce a special Primary Colours 10th anniversary show at London’s Royal Albert Hall in May 2019.
Celebrating a decade since the release of their iconic second album, the band will play the record in its entirety as the gig marks their only UK performance of 2019, and takes place on 9 May.
The now classic Mercury Prize-nominated Primary Colours was produced by Geoff Barrow (Portishead) and represented a departure from the sounds of their debut Strange House, which was released in 2007.
When asked about the upcoming anniversary show, the band stated, “Primary Colours was a pivotal album for us and we are excited to give it a deserved celebration as it reaches its 10th year. We welcome with open arms our friends, fans and supporters from throughout the universe to come to the Royal Albert Hall, one of the most beautiful venues in London, to enjoy this very special evening with us.”
Primary Colours featured the singles Mirror’s Image, Sea Within a Sea and Who Can Say. Since then, the band have released two top 10 albums, Luminous in 2014 and V in 2017. The band also released Skying in 2011.
The band is made up of lead vocalist Faris Badwan (aka Faris Rotter); keyboards, synth and bass player Tom Cowan (aka Tom Furse); guitarist and pianist Joshua Hayward (aka Joshua Von Grimm and Joshua Third); drummer Joe Spurgeon (aka Coffin Joe) and Rhys Webb (aka Spider Webb) on bass, keyboards, organ and more. They formed in Southend-on-Sea in 2005 and became known for their indie rock-meets-garage punk sound.
