Coasts announce massive UK tour in support of new album ‘This Life’

On 18 August 2017, COASTS will release their eagerly anticipated new album ‘This Life’ via High Time Records. Available to preorder worldwide from 23 June, this record is the follow up to their selftitled debut chart album in 2016.

Packed full of poppy hooks, rocky riffs and big choruses, ‘This Life’ is the product of 12-months intensive studio work by the band, recording in collaboration with producers Dan Bryer, who has worked with Rag ‘N’ Bone Man and Niall Horan, Tim Larcombe,  who has  produced  Lana Del  Rey,  Halsey and  The Hunna,  and Duncan Mills, who has been credited on The Vaccines and Jake Bugg’s releases.

Forming in 2011 as students in Bristol, COASTS have established a huge fanbase that has seen the band sell out venues across the globe, as well as massive homecomings, including an unforgettable night at Camden’s Roundhouse last year. Having clocked up millions of streams, 130,000 Facebook likes and over 100,000 sales thanks to singles such as Modern Love, A Rush of Blood, and the BBC Radio 1 playlisted You and Oceans, COASTS career has taken them to the very top of the game, with appearances at major festivals such as Coachella, Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds and Lollapalooza.

Album opener Take Me Back Home instantly draws you in. The tight rhythm section, consisting of drummer Ben Street and bassist James Gamage, is complemented with finesse by guitarist  Liam Willford  and  keyboardist  David  Goulbourn.  With its powerful four-to-the-floor chorus, vocalist Chris Caines croons to the listener: “Take me back home, where the sky is glittering gold”, embodying the joys of the success the boys have had whilst touring the world.

This Life’ also explores themes of growing up and self-discovery. From falling in love on Heart Starts Beating, to feeling broken in the anthemic track Tomorrow, the release successfully portrays the expert songwriting ability the band has developed over time.

Following a sell-out UK club tour in May 2017, COASTS are touring the length and breadth of the UK in support of their new record. The 38-date tour will allow fans to get up close and personal to the band, as well as be some of the first people to experience  the  new  material  being  performed  live.  The  dates  kick  off  on  15

September in Aberdeen, Scotland, come to London on 5 October, and conclude with a show on 29 October in Brighton, England.

Tickets will be available for purchase on 23 June from Music Glue.
