The Coral’s tour dates will go on-sale on September 15th.
The band will play Glasgow Barrowlands, the Liverpool Olympia and London’s Electric Ballroom during the run, ending in Manchester at New Century on December 9th.
Sea Of Mirrors and its companion piece Holy Joe’s Coral Island Medicine Show were praised by Live4ever as, ‘equally both fascinating and fantastic, imperfectly woven but always compelling’:
“With narration once again provided by James and Ian Skelly’s grandad Ian ‘The Great Muriarty’ Murray, the characters here are nearly all without redemption, or even seeking it. Here, the Johnny Cash-isms of Baby Face Nelson help relay the tale of a shot dead bygone gangster, whilst The Sinner’s tremolo-soaked murder ballad comes over like The Shadows soundtracking Pulp Fiction.”
Occasionally the widescreen bleeds into this tableau directly, with Dr. Who actor John Simm voicing over on The Drifter’s Prayer, but the lasting impression is one of sorrow and damnation (Never Be In Love Like That Again, Down To The Riverside, The Road Is Calling).
