Goldheart Assembly are set to play a farewell show at London’s reborn ULU venue on Thursday the 7th of December 2017.
The group line up of John Herbert (vocals / guitar), James Dale (vocals / bass), Nicky Francis (drums / vocals), Jake Bowser (keyboards / vocals) and Kyle Hall (guitar) will be joined on the night by original members Dominic Keshavarz and Tom Hastings. The farewell gig will be in the style of The Band’s ‘The Last Waltz’ and will feature some very special guests. Instead of a support act, Goldheart Assembly will become the backing band for artists who have ‘supported’ their career.
There will be special guest appearances and classic songs from:
To coincide with the special show, Goldheart Assembly will re-issuetheir two albums – ‘Wolves And Thieves’and ‘Long Distance Song Effects’ together with the single ‘Sad Sad Stage’ on fierce panda / LGM Records in December 2017.
Goldheart Assembly disassembled, then: a modern rock story soundtracked by the most timeless of tunes and destined for the most classic of demises. DIY single release ‘So Long St Christopher’ cemented their harmonic agenda in 2009 and set the band rolling through the ‘Wolves And Thieves’ campaign which garnered a myriad of media compliments and radio love.
Steve Lamacq loved them. The NME loved them. Band Of Horses loved them. They toured with The Magic Numbers, We Are Scientists, The Civil Wars and Low Anthems and sold out the Borderline, Kings College and The Scala on their way upwards and onwards as they were feted to be the next big thing. ate however had different ideas: Guitarists, managers and momentum were lost by the wayside as the band were hit by bad luck and bruising vibes, but when the crankily gorgeous ‘Long Distance Song Effects’ album rolled out in 2013 Goldheart had seemingly found their silver lining.
The ‘Last Waltz’, then: a final show for some fine showmen. Go see them play one more time on that sad, sad stage…
