The Saints ‘King Of The Sun’ Album Tour 2012
The eagerly anticipated new Saints album ‘King of the Sun’, released through Highway 125, comes out September 24. The album features 11 brand-new Bailey compositions recorded at Trackdown Studio, Sydney, and includes a bonus disc ‘Songs from the Stash’, a selection of classic Saints material.
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 recorded at the world-famous Trackdown Studio, engineered by Sean Carey and produced by Fortunato Luchresi.
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.
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.
Touring this November and December as The Saints are Chris Bailey vocals, bass, Peter Wilkinson drums, Sean Carey (ex-Thirsty Merc) guitarist, Andy Judd (The Reverend) piano, keyboard, Danny Carmichael trombone & Simon Ferenci trumpet
