Written by RockSport on February 1, 2018
Stereophonics are in Glasgow at the SSE Hydro on Feb 24th and the gig is eagerly anticipated by critics and fans alike.
Described as “classic UK rock delivered with whiskey vocals,” the band have been summarised as possessing a sound akin to the genres of alternative rock and “British traditional rock”. Stereophonics’ debut album was released in August 1997 and charted at number six in the UK, aided by the singles “Local Boy in the Photograph“, “More Life in a Tramps Vest” and “A Thousand Trees“. The band reached mainstream success with the release of PERFORMANCE AND COCKTAILS (and its promotional singles “The Bartender and the Thief“, “Just Looking” and “Pick a Part That’s New“) in 1999 and have achieved a total of ten top-ten singles as well as one number one: “Dakota” (2005). Having sold around 10 million copies worldwide, Stereophonics are one of the most successful Welsh rock acts. Upon the release of the album PULL THE PIN they became the eighth group to achieve five consecutive UK number one albums (after the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, ABBA, Genesis, Oasis, Blur and U2).
