  • Spiritualized and Sian Alice Group
Event details: After much anticipation, and a longer than expected wait, Spiritualized are set to release their new 18-track sixth studio album, 'Songs In A&E', on Spaceman Records on May 19th.

The album will be preceded by the single, 'Soul On Fire', which will be available digitally as well as on CD format.

Since the release of the last studio album, 'Amazing Grace', there followed a lengthy period of touring but this was unfortunately curtailed by a serious illness, which struck main man Jason Pierce in 2005. Time spent in intensive care interrupted the writing and recording of the follow up record prior to, and after, his illness.

Inevitably, this setback turned into an inspiration... Following the completion of the A&E recording sessions in 2007 Spiritualized presented their Acoustic Mainlines live show, where they previewed 'acoustic' versions of new and old material. The much acclaimed shows were performed at many and various festivals and revered venues, including the legendary Apollo Theatre in Harlem, New York.

Acoustic Mainlines will play their last few shows at the iTunes Festival on Sunday 2nd March at Air Studios in London followed by a handful of US West Coast shows culminating with the renowned Coachella Festival in April. The band will be touring with full line-up and additional gospel singers in May; including shows at Benicassim in Spain, Summer Sonic in Japan and extensive venues and festivals throughout the UK, Europe and USA.
