Dawn Chorus album launch @ Islington Assembly Hall
June 29th 2017
Having wowed the Royal Albert Hall with their lofty waves of ethereal bliss, sonic experimenter Joe Acheson brings his Hidden Orchestra back into full focus, with an exclusive and unmissable launch show for their eagerly anticipated new album.
“You could just listen to that forevermore, couldn’t you?” – MARY ANNE HOBBS (BBC 6MUSIC)
Releasing via esteemed Brighton institution Tru Thoughts, The ‘Dawn Chorus’ album will be launched with a gig at London’s Islington Assembly Hall on 29th June; revered around the world for their compelling shows, the live incarnation of Hidden Orchestra combines the duelling beats of two full drum kits (care of Jamie Graham and Tim Lane) with piano and violin from Poppy Ackroyd, and Acheson’s bass and electronics. Their recent performance at The Royal Albert Hall alongside The Pharcyde, Submotion Orchestra, Andreya Triana and Henry Wu was a milestone event building on a dizzying run of gigs this decade, from sellout AV shows at London’s Union Chapel and St John at Hackney to hundreds of headlines and festivals at home and around the world.
As pace gathers around the latest release and demand for their jaw dropping live shows continue to increase, Hidden Orchestra are rapidly converting themselves into not just a band everyone in the know is talking about, but an act that music and art history will regale time and time again.
