Goldheart Assembly have announced details of short run of UK headline shows in July. The dates follow their second album, Long Distance Song Effects, which is released through New Music Club on Monday July 1st 2013.
The start of 2011 saw them play a sold out show at London's Scala in April, complete their first U.S tour, including a slot at that year's SxSW Festival and make a high-profile appearance on the Last Call with Carson Daly TV show. Most recently, at the end of 2012, they completed a low-key residency at London's Sebright Arms and a European tour with Band of Horses.
The full list of current shows is as follows:
3rd Glasgow King Tuts
4th Manchester Soup Kitchen
9th London Borderline
11th Bristol Louisiana
Tickets for the shows are priced at £7 (£10 in London) and are available via
Self-produced by the band with Tobi Gmur and recoded in Lucerne, Switzerland and London, the 11-track album follows their acclaimed debut, Wolves and Thieves, which was released in March 2010. Beginning Long Distance Song Effects in 2011, the album was shaped over a period of two years as the 25 tracks they initially recorded in London were gradually whittled down between trips back and forth to Lucerne where they recorded with Swiss musician / producer Tobi Gmur, who they'd met on an earlier European tour.
Goldheart Assembly are: Jake Bowser (keyboards, vocals), James Dale (lead vocals, bass), Nicky Francis (drums, vocals), Kyle Hall (guitar) and John Herbert (lead vocals, guitar).
