Slowdive is an English shoegaze band from Reading, consisting of Rachel Goswell, guitarist and vocalist Neil Halstead, second guitarist Christian Savill, bassist Nick Chaplin, and drummer Simon Scott.
Formed in 1989, the band released their debut album, ‘Just for a Day’, in 1991, which was followed by ‘Souvlaki’, in 1993, and ‘Pygmalion’, in 1995, before they disbanded. Almost 20 years after their split, the band announced they would be returning for a summer of festivals in 2014, as well as two Christmas-time gigs in London. The band released their a self-titled album in 2017, and continued to tour the UK, Europe and North America.
Slowdive will open for the War On Drugs at the O2 Arena in December, with a warm up show planned before hand in Brighton. Catch them live by checking out the tour dates and concert ticket information below on Stereoboard.
