British indie rock legends, The Wedding Present are pleased to announce a very special headline Belfast show on Sunday 24th October 2021 to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the release of their pivotal long-player, Seamonsters. Tickets on sale Wednesday 16th December at 10 am via ticketmaster.ie
Following the release of Seamonsters – which was recorded in twelve days during 1991 – The Guardian newspaper noted that: “(Engineer, Steve) Albini has given The Wedding Present considerable weight, with Gedge’s voice trickling between banks of scowling guitars” and went on to feature it in its list of ‘1,000 albums to hear before you die’. Despite its uncompromising sound the album reached No. 13 in the British album charts and has been hailed as a classic.
RCA Records are planning to issue a thirtieth-anniversary re-release of Seamonsters in May 2021.
