TNP return to town this coming spring with a special stand-alone show at London’s Heaven club. This follows their incredible ‘Hidden Live ‘ events towards the end of 2010 and will be a chance to find out what this breathtaking band have been up to so far in 2011 as well as reminding us of their intricacies of both their exceptional albums.
TNPs Jack Barnett explains what’s to be expected, “These New Puritans return with a one-off show – featuring an expanded band line-up – playing music old, new and current.”
Their ‘Hidden Live’ shows with brass and wind ensembles and childrens’ choir were a huge success that opened a new chapter for the band in what proved to be an exceptional twelve months since the release of their second album. Now we can enjoy the fruits of their labours once again with this stripped down but equally as impressive live set up that will take them through the 2011 festivals.
“Hidden is not just the most original record to emerge from Britain this year, but the most unfathomable: an immaculate enigma.”
