Preview: Futureheads @ Durham Cathedral
By Ruth Edmundson on August 17, 2012 in Music
As if they haven’t already had enough with churches this year to show off their new a cappella style, The Futureheads are at it again playing at Durham Cathedral.
Before they step up to the alter, The Lake Poets and Natasha Haws support – so be sure to take some tissues as the last time they both played at a church things got emotional. I think it’s the cold draft in those types of places.
The Lake Poets, if you don’t already know, is Martin Longstaff who plays guitar and sings hauntingly moving songs with his band. His music, along with Natasha Haws’ delicate yet honest songs of love and loss, are a perfect blend before the main show of the night.
Head honcho Barry Hyde said: “The Cathedral is a very special gig for us, to us it’s a completely out of the blue once in a lifetime experience. The building is simply awesome and the ultimate venue for us to play one of our a cappella/acoustic shows. ‘Rant’ has been a transformational album for us, although we didn’t know we were even making an album until it was finished and we certainly didn’t expect that it would put us on stage Durham Cathedral!
“The occasion is special enough for us, no twists needed, we just want to enjoy the honour and sing like Choristers.”
The gig takes place on August 25th and tickets are £17.50 but keep in mind the gig is limited to only 800 people on the night so be quick.
