Set to be one of December’s biggest gigs, Wirral alt. rock champions Hooton Tennis Club return to Merseyside for a special homecoming show at the new Kazimierz-led Docklands venue, Invisible Wind Factory.
Firm favourites of BBC 6 Music, the melodic slacker rock group have become a fêted live attraction, with the Liverpool date the concluding fixture of a lengthy European tour. On the road throughout the last quarter of 2016, eagerly awaited second LP Big Box of Chocolates is due for release on 21st October. The follow up to rapturously received debut album Highest Point in Cliff Town, the new disc was produced by revered singer songwriter Edwyn Collins at his studio in Helmsdale, Scotland.
Signed to the muchloved indie label Heavenly Recordings, Hooton Tennis Club inked a deal with the set-up at Glastonbury Festival following a 2014 performance in The Kazimier Gardens that won over label founder Jeff Barrett. With the upcoming gig almost a year to the day since the band’s hugely praised sold out show, one of the last ever at the legendary Kazimier, the forthcoming date at the venues’ successor the Invisible Wind Factory will be one of 2016s landmark live shows.
