These New Puritans have confirmed plans for a specially expanded set at the Barbican next year.
One of the most ambitious bands in the country, These New Puritans are plagued by the difficulties they face in turning their studio dreams into concert reality.
Yet - somehow - the band seem to manage it. The group played a extravagent set at London's Brixton Electric venue earlier this year, with Clash writer Anna Wilson stating: "Austere and atonal in aesthetic, tonight has bristled with challenge yet has remained humanistic, even romantic in a terror stricken way. This is no grandiloquent statement. Puritans are the real deal."
Recruiting a host of additional musicians, These New Puritans are set to bring TNP EXPANDED to the Barbican next year. Taking place on April 17th, the performance will consist of new album 'Field Of Reeds' played in its entirety alongside 'Lost Chords' - old and brand new works, worked and re-worked.
Tickets go on sale at 9am this Friday (December 13th) - full information.
