Public Service Broadcasting to play sold out gig in Newcastle
London-based band Public Service Broadcasting will play Newcastle’s Riverside on Thursday April 30, for the release of their new album The Race for Space.
The tour kicked off with two nights at the National Space Centre in Leicester late February.
Having no front-man and relying on samples from old public information films, archive footage and propaganda material as lyrical content, is a refreshing take on live music. A strong relationship with the BFI means during performances they use their material, along with recorded messages to address the crowd in robotic voices. In terms of the way the album sounds, it has a mix of spacey melodic tracks with enough rock groove to rival its predecessor Inform-Educate-Entertain.
In June they’re supporting The Strokes at their Hyde Park gig in London, alongside other artists including; Beck, Future Islands, Temples and many more.
