The Quireboys - O2 Academy, Bristol - 28th April 2013 (Photo Gallery)

Tuesday, 30 April 2013 Written by Jon Stickler

Currently storming through a series of UK dates, The Quireboys were at Bristol's O2 Academy on Sunday April 28th, supporting Saxon who are currently promoting their new album 'Sacrifice'. Stereoboard were stage-side to capture all the action!

The band have experienced various line-up changes along the way, but have still maintained a loyal following across the globe. A more permanent reformation came just after 2001 with front man Spike, guitarist, Guy Griffin, Guitarist, Paul Guerin, and Keith Weir on keyboards that, to this date, remain the back bone of the band.. The band then released 'This Is Rock'N'Roll' in 2002, followed it with 'Well Oiled' in 2004 and 2008’s  'Homewreckers & Heartbreakers'. The as-yet-untitled new studio album will be produced and mixed by the legendary Chris Tsangarides ( Judas Priest, Gary Moore, Thin Lizzy), who promises a modern sound with old school values. A relase date is expected in early June.

 With multiple festival appearances, The Monsters of Rock Cruise, a European Headline tour and three planned releases, things are ramping up in a manner that will put The Quireboys back where they belong…on the Global playing field.
