Wang Chung return
By Classic Pop | April 29, 2013
80s pop legends Wang Chung will return with their first album of new material since 1989s ‘The Warmer Side of Cool’ when they release ‘Tazer Up!’ on 3rd June, 2013.
According to Wang Chung bassist Nick Feldman, “With Tazer Up! we wanted to cut across contemporary limitations of genre and explore all the styles of music we love, from electro-pop, dance and piano ballads to Pink Floyd-esque rock. It’s all there; partly looking back to the synth-pop of the 80’s, but also looking forward with contemporary production. This is Wang Chung for the 21st Century.”
In addition, to precede the album’s release the band will perform their first live date in the UK for twenty-five years at London’s Bush Hall on Saturday, 25th May 2013.
Speaking of the band’s first London show in twenty-five years, Feldman said, “This is a unique gig for Wang Chung. Not only is it our first London show for 25 years, we will be reunited with our original drummer Darren Costin for the first time since 1985.”
