Here’s a late Christmas Present. Chasing The Tail Of A Dream is the first taste of The Coral’s new album Distance Inbetween, available for free download here. Chasing The Tail Of A Dream comes with a psychedelic video.
A limited edition (1000 copies) 7 inch of Chasing The Tail Of A Dream, numbered and signed by the band and backed with new track Unforgiven, is available from the band’s website.
Since their debut EP release in 2001 The Coral have sold over a million UK albums, with five reaching the Top 10 including 2003s chart-topping Magic and Medicine. Their eight Top 40 singles include Dreaming Of You, In The Morning, Pass It On, and Dont Think You’re The First.
Recorded at Liverpools Parr Street Studio with co-producer Richard Turvey, Distance Inbetween was recorded live and mostly in just one take. James Skelly (vocals, guitars), Ian Skelly (drums/percussion/vocals), Nick Power (keyboard/vocals), and Paul Duffy (bass/keyboards/vocals) are joined by Coral newbie, guitarist Paul Molloy, formerly of The Zutons. The seams of each of the albums 12-tracks are purposely rough-hewn and pave the way for a new visceral sound from a totally reenergised band.
To coincide with the album release The Coral will head out on a UK tour, including a show at Londons O2 Shepherds Bush Empire on 16th March. The band will then tour Europe in April before returning to their hometown to headline Liverpool Sound City Festival on 29th May.
