Inspiral Carpets

On December the 19th, Inspiral Carpets will be playing in their beloved hometown at Manchester’s The Ritz as part of their UK tour, taking place across December. The tour will see the group stopping at several venues including The Globe in Cardiff and The Rescue Rooms in Nottingham as well as a number of the countries O2 Academies.

Initially forming in 1983, Inspiral Carpets consisted of five musicians who rocketed to stardom in the late 80’s ‘Madchester’ scene with other reputable groups such as The Happy Mondays and The Stone Roses. After two demo albums, their own label and a run of notoriously popular t-shirts, the band joined Mute Records that gave them their first top 40 hit, ‘This Is How It Feels’. The track reached number 14 in the singles chart and the album that donned the single reached number 2 in 1990. Their following albums like ‘Devil Hopping’ and ‘The Beat Inside’ also reached high numbers in the charts.

After a brief split that saw members of the band embarking on their own projects, Inspiral Carpets reformed in 2003 with the single ‘Come Back Tomorrow’. This sparked a number of sold out tours and compilation albums over the next few years before original singer Steve Holt returned to the band after their current vocalist left. More touring took place with groups such as The Happy Mondays and now most recently their newest album (the first in 20 years) has landed simply named ‘Inspiral Carpets’. This album will contain 2 past singles and 10 new tracks, going on sale with a reissue of their LP ‘Dung 4’.

On the 19th of December Inspiral Carpets will be coming to The Ritz in Manchester to give their faithful fans a taste of their new music whilst also entertaining the crowd with their much loved classics.
