British Sea Power is a indie rock band from Brighton, consisting of frontman Scott Wilkinson, guitarists Martin Noble and Neil Wilkinson, drummer Matthew Wood, cornet and keyboard player Phil Sumner, and viola player Abi Fri.
Formed in the year 2000, the band released their debut album, ‘The Decline of British Sea Power’, in 2003, with the single, Carrion, reaching the Top 40 in the UK Singles Chart. Their second album, ‘Open Season’, released in 2005, hit #13 in the UK Albums Chart, with their third album, ‘Do You Like Rock Music?, which was released in 2008, peaking even higher at #10. The band released their ninth album, ‘Sea of Brass’, in 2015.
The band have headlined their own shows and tours across the UK and celebrated the 12th anniversary of their debut ‘The Decline of...’ with special one off shows at Brighton, Manchester and London in June 2015. They have also played Reading and Leeds and Latitude festivals, and have supported Manic Street Preachers.
British Sea Power have confirmed UK shows for February 2018, and an additional date in Nottingham in May, supporting their brand new 2017 album 'Let The Dancers Inherit The Party'. Catch them live by checking out the tour dates and ticket information below on Stereoboard.
Over the past 17 years, British Sea Power have unfortunately developed from precocious critical darlings to a bit of a nothing band. They peddle rock anthems that can soar like a jet or sink like the Titanic and their latest album, ‘Let The Dancers Inherit the Party’ is, sadly, more sink than soar.
