The Quireboys to release Black Eyed Sons on 16th June 2014

**THE QUIREBOYS CELEBRATE THREE DECADES WITH STUNNING HAT-TRICK**

Black Eyed Sons – THE BRAND NEW ALBUM KICKS OFF 30TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS

TOP VALUE PACKAGE INCLUDES LIVE CD AND LIVE DVD RELEASED MONDAY JUNE 16, 2014

The year is 1984.

The miners’ strike is in full swing. Apple sells its first Macintosh home computer and Whitesnake release Slide It In. Prince Harry is born……and the band that would become The Quireboys makes its infamous debut at a heaving pub in Putney.

Thirty years down the line and it’s time to celebrate a golden age of music with the ultimate party band.

In 2014 The Quireboys continue to fuse retro-fuelled hooks with rock n roll evolution: new album Black Eyed Sons is the perfect soundtrack to your summer.

Following hot on the heels of last year’s critically acclaimed Beautiful Curse – the band’s biggest-selling record since their early 90s heyday – Black Eyed Sons, was produced by the legendary Chris Tsangarides and represents yet another career high for a band bang in form.

Spike (vocals), Guy Griffin (guitars), Paul Guerin (guitars) and Keith Weir (keys) have spent more than a decade rebuilding and revitalising one of British rock n roll’s best-loved brands. Black Eyed Sons is the triumphant result.

Packaged alongside a CD of The Quireboys’ main stage acoustic set at 2013’s Sweden Rock festival – in front of 40,000 fans – and a live 7 CAM shot DVD featuring the London leg of last year’s Beautiful Curse tour, this is a must-have for long-time fans and new converts alike.

“I’ve always felt like I’m 30-years-old,” jokes Spike. “So this is our time. And I’d just like to raise a toast to the next 30 years.”

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
