The Charlatans were pleased to announce the North American release of Who We Touch on September 14, 2010 via The End Records. The 10-track album was produced by Youth (Killing Joke, Primal Scream, Paul McCartney) and the first single will be "Love is Ending." If you have a hankering for the Brit pop, this is good news for you.
The band - Martin Blunt (bass), Jon Brookes (drums), Tim Burgess (vocals), Mark Collins (guitar) and Tony Rogers (keyboards) - will be heading to American a week prior to the album's release for a tour that begins September 7 in Atlanta, Georgia and closes September 22 in Los Angeles, California. The tour marks the first time in over four years since The Charlatans performed in North America. Tickets go on sale this weekend for all dates below. It's been four long year since the band has graced our soil with their music, so it's about friggin' time. Where ya been, boys?
"We told Youth we wanted the record to have the sound of a European winter," said Burgess in a statement. "With that fresh, crisp sound you get from some British records, but also something fearless, that was quite far-reaching, to challenge ourselves - a real journey. It is a soulful voyage," a journey through moods uplifting and profound, dark and delirious, ultimately concluding in blissful optimism." You can experience a British winter just by listening to an album? That's the power of art, no doubt.
