Having spent the last year and a half playing truant – as the rhythm section in a French band – Bailey and drummer, Peter Wilkinson, dust off their halos and re-focus on The Saints.
‘King of the Sun’ was produced by Fortunato Luchresi and engineered by Sean Carey. The title track will be the first single taken from the album. Initially released in Australia November 2012 to coincide with the band’s Australian tour
Chris Bailey says of the album, “The Saints have always been my main passion, despite my promiscuity and desire for musical experiment I feel that The Saints are an unfinished musical journey. This album is one step closer on this road.”
The tracks are subtle metaphors, disguised in nostalgia or cherishment of a time gone by; they capture the difficulties and the despair of our times.
The Saints continue to entertain crowds far and wide, throughout the world. Details of UK/European live dates will be announced soon.
Over the years the band have released 15 studio albums, 17 singles, 6 EPs, 2 live albums and 10 compilation albums, not to mention Bailey’s solo output and collaborations with other artists.
And they have done a shitload more but this is just PR, listen to the music….
