YORKSHIRE’S shoegaze princes-in-waiting bdrmm have rescheduled their long-awaited UK tour to October and November, hoping as we all are that live music will be fully functional by then. See the rearranged dates below.
Sonic Cathedral, voicing the natural frustration I’m sure so many of us feel at the Government’s … idiosyncratic handling of the pandemic, said: “Hopefully, if the Government’s clown car roadmap actually works, venues will be reopened by the summer and these new dates will finally allow the band to get out and tour their debut album Bedroom, which was released last year to universal critical acclaim and ended up in Rough Trade’s Top 10 Albums of the Year.”
It will be the first chance so many of us will get to witness that album, which we noted as being as “beautiful and mysterious” (read our review here) live and sweaty and loud and among grinning strangers – the truly good communing in music. The properly good stuff. Riddle me this: how good will “A Reason To Celebrate” sound once we’re out the other side?
“We have everything crossed that this one will be the one,” said singer/guitarist Ryan Smith.
“The optimism that music will return back to normal is what keeps us all going. We can’t wait to see you.”
