Hard times ahead

Have your say

FOLLOWING their triumphant headline slot on the Leftfield stage at Glastonbury, Brit-nominated quartet Hard-Fi have announced news of their new single, Fire In The House, plus a North East gig.

 The single will be released on August 15, with their forthcoming third album, Killer Sounds, coming out on August 22.

 The four-piece from Staines have been busy working on their third studio album for the past eighteen months.

 It’s been co-produced by the band’s frontman, Richard Archer, with assistance from big names such as Stuart Price (Killers, Madonna), Grey Kurstin (Lily Allen) and Alan Moulder (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Killers). Following a return to Glastonbury after four years, Hard-Fi plan to play a string of shows in September, which kicks off in Norwich on September 21 and includes a sold out London Forum show on September 23.

 With the band’s million-selling debut, Stars of CCTV, the number 1 follow up, Once Upon A Time In The West and two Brit award nominations (2006’s Best British Group and Best British Rock Act) already under their belts, Hard-Fi are hoping to hit the top of the charts once again. They will play Northumbria University, Newcastle, on September 29.
