Move Through The Dawn was recorded at Parr Street Studios in Liverpool and produced by The Coral and Rich Turvey. The album is the influential Hoylake five-pieces follow-up to 2016s critically acclaimed Distance Inbetween, which featured the BBC 6Music playlisted singles Miss Fortune, Holy Revelation and Million Eyes.
Nick Power, The Corals keyboardist, has written a new book, Into The Void, which will be published by Ebacc concurrently with the new album. Powers third book, Into The Void is an insightful, amusing and evocative first-hand account of the recording, release and touring of Distance Inbetween, which came after a five-year hiatus for the band.
Since their debut EP release in 2001, The Coral have sold over a million UK albums, with five reaching the Top 10 including 2003s chart-topping Magic and Medicine. Their eight Top 40 singles include Dreaming Of You, In The Morning, Pass It On, and Dont Think Youre The First.
