Turin Brakes announce Invisible Storm album and tour (2018)

Story by Jack Foley

AFTER an impressive 17 years together, seven studio albums and over a million records sold worldwide, London four-piece Turin Brakes have announced their eighth studio album Invisible Storm coming in January 2018, followed by a major UK tour.

2016 saw them back lighting up the airwaves with national radio play-listing for three singles from critically acclaimed album Lost Property coupled with a packed schedule of touring. But new songs kept popping up, in sound checks. Light-bulb moments materialised in midnight sessions in hotel rooms or in any spare moments found.

The band – founder members and former primary school friends Olly Knights and Gale Paridjanian, along with longtime bandmates Rob Allum and Eddie Myer – quickly decided to catch that wave.

Completed by producer Ali Staton they all returned to their favourite bolthole – Rockfield Studios in the Monmouth Valley – where they could absorb the vibes left hanging in the air by a long line of musical mavericks, sit down at the piano where Freddie recorded Bohemian Rhapsody and let the music take shape, revealing the next stage in the journey.

Invisible Storm is big-picture music played on a small screen, refracted through lyrics that embrace the personal and the universal, without offering the comfort of easy answers.

To mark the release of the album, Turin Brakes will play a total of 11 dates in March 2018, including a night at London’s Palladium. Tickets are on sale now…
