Sit Down, relax, enjoy James
PUBLISHED: 08:35 24 March 2016
As a Mancunian band of the 1990s Britpop era, James often operated in the shadow of peers Oasis.
But the band produced some hit singles of their own after signing to the legendary Factory Records in 1982 and have since gone on to sell more than 12 million albums.
Songs like Sit Down, Come Home and She’s A Star became embedded in the national consciousness, but now the indie rockers have returned with an album they consider their best ever.
The new album, entitled Girl At The End Of The World, will be released tomorrow (Friday), preceding a major headline tour, which includes a show at Bristol’s Colston Hall, in Colston Street, on May 2.
Girl At The End Of The World sees the band team up with producer Max Dingel (who also worked on albums for The Killers, Muse and White Lies) and is both anthemic and euphoric, with electronic notes reflecting James’ long connection to dance music.
Tickets for the 7pm show, priced £24.19-48.38 including a booking fee, are available from www.colstonhall.org or by calling 08448 871500.
