EXCELLENT BOOZE NEWS

Here at Rescue Rooms HQ, we are absolutely stoked to welcome both Hoxton Cidersmith Sixpointsix Craft and Michelin & Brown Vintage Ciders to the Rescue Rooms’ fridges.

Hoxton Cidersmiths, originating in Herefordshire, burst onto the craft cider scene late last year before relocating to City Road, London.

Sixpointsix (6.6%) is an oak aged cider with creamy, vanilla note that is sure knock your socks off! Whilst Michelin & Brown (4.5%) uses only fallen English apples to yield a sharp, crisp edge - a proper lazy man’s cider.

Both bottles are available for just £4.50 in the Rescue Rooms bar. Bottoms up!

GIG NEWS: The Coral

The Coral Tour Poster

After a five-year hiatus The Coral return in 2016 with their eighth studio album, Distance Inbetween, out March 4th on Ignition Records. To coincide with the release the influential five-piece will head out on a UK tour, including a show at London’s O2 Shepherd’s 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. Tickets for the tour go on sale 9am on Friday 27th November and the album is available to pre order now from http://www.thecoral.co.uk.

Distance Inbetween is The Coral’s first album of original material since 2010’s Butterfly House, a gap punctuated by last year’s surprise release of their lost album, The Curse of Love. Since their debut EP release in 2001 the band have sold over a million UK albums, with five reaching the Top 10 including 2003’s chart-topping Magic and Medicine. Their eight Top 40 singles include Dreaming Of You, In The Morning, Pass It On, and Don’t Think You’re The First.

Recorded at Liverpool’s Parr Street Studio with co-producer Richard Turvey, Distance Inbetween was recorded live and mostly in just one take. The seams of each of the album’s 12-tracks are purposely rough-hewn and pave the way for a new visceral sound from a totally reenergised band.

"Before we started making the album we had discussed that we wanted it to be more minimal and rhythmical,” explains James Skelly (vocals, guitars). “We thought ‘if you've got a rhythm section that’s been playing together for almost twenty years, why not make that the centre of the songs?’"

On the album James, 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.

“Paul was playing with Ian in their band, Serpent Power, and we'd all been mates with him for years,” says James. “We already had a couple of tunes recorded and Ian suggested Paul add some guitar. His parts really enhanced the tracks; he understood where he needed to leave space. From that point we didn't look back. We had a full line-up and were confident we could make an album that would stand next to the others."

On Distance Inbetween listeners are invited into The Coral’s world of Richard Yates’ books, Alan Moore comics, 1980's toys, the sound of krautrock compilations and Muddy Waters’ Electric Mud, and Gregory Crewdson’s darkly beautiful photography.

The album is dedicated to Alan Wills, The Coral’s early mentor and Deltasonic label boss who tragically lost his life in 2014.

MOTIONLESS IN WHITE - POSTPONED

Sorry to report that the Motionless In White gig here on 29th November has been postponed. Here's news from the band:

To all UK/Ireland fans,
We are sadly going to be postponing our Beyond The Barricade UK/Ireland Tour that was set to begin this weekend. After much deliberation amongst ourselves, our crew, our families, the supporting bands, and our management, it has been deemed as the most fitting course of action for where everyone is at right now.
To reiterate, we are not cancelling the tour, we are postponing to the soonest availability of 2016 that we can fit the dates into. We hope to see all of the fans at those dates when they are announced. Please continue to check all the MIW social media accounts, or Motionlessinwhite.net for further information.
Thank you for your compassion and understanding towards the decision.
