CHVRCHES today confirm the release of new single Clearest Blue, out now via Virgin EMI / Goodbye Records. The song is one of the standout tracks from the band’s acclaimed second album Every Open Eye, which charted at #4 in the UK and #8 in the US upon release last September, as well as the top 20 in ten other countries worldwide, and was a mainstay of critics’ albums of the year lists everywhere from The Guardian, Q and NME, to Mashable, Entertainment Weekly and Popjustice. Every Open Eye is the follow up to CHVRCHES’ breakthrough debut album The Bones of What You Believe, released in autumn 2013 to widespread acclaim, selling over 500,000 copies and garnering the band a Brit Award nomination.
CHVRCHES have announced two very special shows for spring 2016, at London’s iconic Royal Albert Hall on 31 March and a hometown show at Glasgow’s SSE Hydro on 2 April. The latter will be the band’s biggest headline performance to date; The Twilight Sad will be special guests at the SSE Hydro show.
The shows will be the band’s first UK dates since a sold out show at London’s Alexandra Palace last November, the culmination of a sold out two month tour across the US, Europe and the UK playing to 75,000 people in the wake of the release of Every Open Eye. Later this month they play their biggest shows ever in Asia and Australia, before joining Paramore as special guests for their Parahoy! cruise in March. The band have already been confirmed for a number of major international festivals this spring and summer, including Coachella, Melt! Festival and Way Out West, with more to follow.
