FIRST AID KIT Tickets
Following the ecstatic response to their musical return with the ‘My Silver Lining’ single, First Aid Kit have announced their most ambitious UK tour to date in September, calling at Glasgow, Belfast, Manchester, Bristol and rounded out off with an appearance at the hallowed environs of the Royal Albert Hall on 24 September as part of the venue’s Albert Sessions.
First Aid Kit tickets for the September tour dates will be available on Aloud from 9am on Friday May 16th
This follows the sold out show taking place this Thursday 15 May at the Islington Assembly Hall. The band also have main stage UK festival dates at Latitude and Green Man Festivals. Added to this they have revealed the spooked and sumptuous video for ‘My Silver Lining’ directed by Elliott Sellers and shot at the Paramour Mansion in Los Angeles (home to silent screen star parties back in the 1930’s). Watch here On 9 June 2014, Swedish duo First Aid Kit will make their Columbia Records debut with their third album 'Stay Gold'.
With 'Stay Gold', First Aid Kit - sisters Klara and Johanna Söderberg – have honed their musical skills and blossomed as vivid storytellers in creating an ambitious 10-song collection. It was recorded at ARC studios in Omaha and produced by Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, Monsters of Folk) and arrangements were by Nate Walcott (Bright Eyes, Broken Bells, Rilo Kiley). They say of the recording process, “We took new directions and turns with the arrangements, building them up and creating more dynamics, yet always following where the songs wanted to go.”
Hailing from a southern suburb of Stockholm, Klara and Johanna began composing songs as teenagers in 2007. Their heart-wrenching song ‘Emmylou’ from The Lion’s Roar was chosen by Rolling Stone as a ‘Single of the Year’ in 2012. That year was an astonishing breakthrough that saw worldwide sales of over 250,000 and saw the album gain silver status in the UK with sales of 68K.
“The voices of Johanna and Klara are enough to weaken knees... The lyrics’ heavy-hearted take on relationships is more evidence of an astonishing maturity” 4/5 Mojo
They have performed on The Late Show with David Letterman, Conan, shared the stage with artists including Jack White, Lykke Li, and Bright Eyes, played the main stage at Glastonbury and rounded everything out by winning both the Nordic Music Prize and four Swedish Grammy’s in 2013.
As part of their Albert Sessions concert at the Royal Albert Hall, First Aid Kit will be working with the Hall’s Education department to devise a special one-off music workshop. The band will work with selected students from across London at the Hall, passing on their experience and knowledge to inspire the next generation of young musicians, who will also get the chance to attend the performance in the main auditorium on 24 September. The Albert Sessions aim to encourage up and coming acts to play the Hall, while also attracting younger audiences through lower ticket prices.
