Richard Hawley Standing at the Sky's Edge The sixth full length album from the Kingston visitor Richard Hawley. Recorded at Sheffield’s Yellow Arch Studio in 2011, ‘Standing At The Sky’s Edge’ marks a seismic shift in direction for Hawley. The album is a euphoric, sonic assault on the senses, channelling elements of psychedelia, space rock and ragas with heavy riffs and raw, visceral guitar solos – as well as more familiar, tender moments – which will surprise Hawley’s fans and peers alike. Exploring lyrical themes of love, loss, redemption and darker areas of the human condition, it’s an album of ominous storytelling and cosmic exploration, sung in Hawley’s rich baritone and soundtracked by an epic musical journey in glorious, menacing Technicolor. In the tradition of Hawley’s previous albums, the title is inspired by an area of Sheffield. LP
Richard Hawley Monday 3rd June at St John's Church Tickets for collection at the church on the night of the show. Please bring your order number with you. Albums will be posted - if you selected Collect In-store at checkout, you need to collect yours from our shop. To celebrate the release of his new full length album titled Further, that is released a few days before, Richard Hawley visits Kingston to play at St John's Church. Further marks a departure for Hawley who has, to date, named all his albums after Sheffield icons or landmarks in his home city. For his new work, however, he wanted to capture the intention of moving forwards, but without jettisoning his past... Optimism lies at the heart of an album made largely in Sheffield with co-producers Colin Elliot and Shez Sheridan. "I really wanted to challenge myself to try to keep things relatively up-tempo and keep the songs to about three minutes long," says Hawley. Times TBC but we expect doors close to 7:00pm with Richard Hawley on at 7:30pm. Please check back This show is 14+, under 14s must be accompanied by a ticket-holding adult.

Richard Hawley Hollow Meadows Eighth album from long-stading Sheffield solo artist Richard Hawley who used to be in The Longpigs and even played with Pulp for a bit! Meditating on such themes as ageing, fallibility and relationships, much of the album shares a brooding, yet wistful and romantic atmosphere in keeping with early albums Late Night Final and Lowedges, as well as touches of 2009’s Truelove’s Gutter (‘Nothing Like A Friend’) and Standing At The Sky’s Edge (‘Which Way’, ‘Welcome The Sun’) CD | LP
