The Coral will play at SWX.


A rock band will soon tour the UK following the release of their latest album, and will perform in the South West.

Having recently supported the Manic Street Preachers on their arena tour, The Coral will celebrate the release of Move Through The Dawn, their first record since 2016.

They will be performing next month at Bristol’s SWX, in Nelson Street, on October 9 at 7pm.

The five-piece formed in 1996 in Merseyside and found success when their self-titled debut album reached number five on the UK albums chart and was also nominated for a Mercury Prize the day after its release in 2002.

Next month’s performances will be their first headline tour for two years following 
their self-imposed six-year hiatus.

Support on the night comes from She Drew The Gun, the Liverpool quartet signed to Coral frontman James Skelly’s Skeleton Key label.

Tickets, priced £20, can be purchased online by logging on to or on 01179 450325.
