To celebrate a decade of work on Warp Records, Gravenhurst announces a UK and European tour playing the album Flashlight Seasons in full.
The first release with Warp, 2004's Flashlight Seasons quickly earned Gravenhurst a devoted fan base, consistently strong support from the music press, and cemented Nick Talbot's reputation as a unique talent, and one of the most original British singer-songwriters and producers of his generation.
For these special shows, Nick Talbot will be joined by Claire Adams and Rachel Lancaster, who form the regular Gravenhurst live band, to perform Flashlight Seasons in its entirely, followed by material picked from the other albums. Honing their sound over two years of touring and promoting The Ghost In Daylight, with their emphasis on three part vocal harmonies and subtle dynamics, the Gravenhurst Ensemble offer the opportunity to hear Flashlight Seasons for the first time performed in a manner truly befitting its unique production and haunting atmosphere.
The tour accompanies the reissue of the two classic albums, Flashlight Seasons and Black Holes In The Sand, and an additional new album: Offerings: Lost Songs 2000 - 2004, a compilation of unreleased material from that period. Released on 1st December 2014, the three albums will be pressed on vinyl accompanied with digital download codes and essays by Nick reflecting on this early material after a decade of progress. A triple CD release will comprise all three albums.
