Sydney outfit Belles Will Ring will launch their album Crystal Theatre in July, playing shows across the country as part of The Walking Souls Tour. 'Crystal Theatre' is out now via Dot Dash/ Remote Control.
The band will be supported by an array of exciting musicians in Melbolurne, Adelaide, Brisbane, Katoomba, Maroochydore and Sydney, including The Fearless Vampire Killers, Cuba In Japan, Lady Strangelove, Steering By Cars, The Dune Rats, Lion Island, Richard Cartwright (of Richard In Your Mind), Kill City Creeps with Count Doyle and Brigadier Brickman.
'Crystal Theatre' is a striking collection of hazy, sun-drenched songs laced with the bands signature psychedelic style and a deeper, darker tone. Recorded throughout 2010 in the tiny town of Portland in central western NSW, the band left the city behind and escaped to the country to record the album.
With 'Crystal Theatre', Belles Will Ring have expanded their sound, adding a wilder and weirder texture by experimenting with vintage keyboards, trumpets, flutes, character voices and found sounds. The album follows on from the band's lauded 2007 album 'Mood Patterns' and 2008’s mini-album 'Broader Than Broadway'.
