To celebrate the crowd-funded release of their critically acclaimed album Crystal Theatre on vinyl, Belles Will Ring are excited to announce a special one off show on October 20th at Newtown’s The Vanguard where they will play the record in full.
Joining them will be iconic Australian band Knievel, who will be playing their classic record, ‘Steep Hill Climb’ from beginning to end.
In 2011 Belles Will Ring received wide critical acclaim for Crystal Theatre with Rolling Stone giving it 4 stars, Mess and Noise calling it a “sweet and terrifying…a moody, sprawling animal” and Drum Media declaring Crystal Theatre to be “a nostalgically brilliant album that’s ironically way ahead of its time.”
Belles Will Ring fans called for a vinyl release of Crystal Theatre and in December 2011 the band successfully crowd funded the money to print a limited edition 180 GSM vinyl edition in a gatefold sleeve.
Crystal Theatre is such a huge record in both scope and length that it took 6 months in total to get the vinyl pressed and it is with no small amount of elation that the band wish to celebrate this by playing the album live from start to finish for the first and only time.
Tickets on sale from The Vanguard now.
