The Greystones, Sheffield
After a streak of rip-roaring, celebratory shows in 2016 road-testing his back catalogue of 12 albums, Nick Harper & The Wilderness Kids (aka PORT ERIN) are back with a new album 'Lies. Lies. Lies. ' and UK tour for 2017, and back to The Greystones, Sheffield. Amidst a backdrop of flags being changed and mottos applied, ‘’350 million reasons why, written on the side of the bus’’ sees Nick and The Kids nailing their colours to the mast and ready to roll. The album was recorded in France's Studio La Fabrique (Radiohead - Moon Shaped Pool, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds - Push the Sky Away) with the legendary producer Tchad Blake (The Black Keys, Pearl Jam, T-Bone, Peter Gabriel). Blake brings his masterful touch to the unceasingly creative cauldron of Nick, his songs and now his band.
‘The Wilderness Kids’ met up with the renowned solo acoustic singer-songwriter at a Record Store Day event, where they jammed on some of Nick’s tracks from his ‘best-of’ triple LP set ‘The Wilderness Years’. Nick immediately realised the potential, promptly picked up a baritone electric guitar and the pace hasn’t let up since. The exciting energy and chemistry between the foursome has had Nick’s fans in rapture and the combination of the much-loved songwriter with the zest present in this new gang made capturing the zeitgeist in the words and music of the new album inevitable. 'Lies. Lies. Lies. ' is an intelligent yet exuberant album rooted very much in the now. Fans can grab first copies of the upcoming album at the gigs on CD or LP from 24 November, in the commercial hubris of Black Friday. Initial pressings can be snatched up on the Lies. Lies. Lies. tour with a general UK release on 1 December.
