Squeeze are also to embark on their first live shows in Japan in 18 years at the end of April!
“Squeeze have long been a captivating live act. As well as a vast catalogue including hits such as Cool For Cats, Up The Junction and Tempted, the shows will also include songs from their latest album Cradle To The Grave, their first collection of new tracks since 1998. Cradle To The Grave marked the complete and, frankly, triumphant reintegration of the masterful songwriting axis of Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook, in a beautifully-observed series of fond vignettes about childhood, growing up and the absurdities of the ride through life we’re all on.
The group first formed in 1973, shortly after Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook had begun their songwriting partnership, brought together by an ad in a sweetshop window. By 1977 they had made their recording debut and enjoyed a string of hits which lasted until 1982, the maturity of their songs outliving their initial burst of chart activity on the back of New Wave. Over the years there have been solo careers and occasional separations, but the Ivor Novello Award-winning songwriting duo Chris and Glenn reunited nine years ago to relaunch Squeeze and have been touring, writing and recording together since.”
