Pierces to play at the Rescue Rooms

The Pierces have announced details of a full UK headline tour in September, to include a gig at Nottingham’s Rescue Rooms on September 28.

The tour is taking place in support of their new album Creation, which is released on September 1.

Creation is the follow-up to sisters Allison and Catherine Pierce’s 2011 breakthrough album, You & I.

The Alabama-born siblings now reside in California and the relocation can be heard on their radiant new record.

Creation marks a stunning sonic evolution for the duo. From the opening title track, the 13 songs retain the breezy, melodious charm of their previous work whilst injecting a world-wise, sun-drenched sparkle. Tracks such as Kings and The Devil Is A Lonely Night match taut grooves to soaring harmonies and there’s a life-affirming glow to the lolloping stomps of Creation (their new single due for release on September 1), Believe In Me and Honest Man. Elsewhere, folk-pop ballads such as The One I Want and Flesh And Bone blend Laurel Canyon sing-alongs with melancholic reflections. The Pierces sound at the peak of their powers.
