Reverend & The Makers @ Manchester Academy
Saturday 4th November
Their sixth studio album ‘The Death Of A King’, which was recorded at Karma Sound Studios Thailand, is the followup to the Top 20 album ‘Mirrors’.
McClure says of recording ‘The Death Of A King’ “As soon as we got there, the king of Thailand died. And there was a mad monsoon. Most of the town went into mourning and shut down, and all the people who worked at the studio were wearing black. There was this whole ceremony for the king, which was quite moving but it put a weird atmosphere in the air.”
Reverend & the Makers were originally born out of a collective of musicians. ‘The Death Of A King’ renews the original spirit of the band and sees lead vocals shared on certain songs with other band members ‘Juliet Knows’ (Joe Carnell), ‘Auld Reekie Blues’ (Eddie Cousins) and ‘Black Flowers’ (Laura McClure).
With five Top 20 albums already under their belts, Sheffield rock’n’roll radicals Reverend and the Makers have carved out a niche for themselves as one of the most enduring and incendiary acts on the British musical landscape.
