The Hanging Stars play Three Wise Monkeys Colchester on Friday 6th May as they tour the UK celebrating the release of their fourth studio album ‘Hollow Heart’

Blending folk pastoralism with swampy 60s Americana, The Hanging Stars sound like the missing link between the California desert sun and the grey skies of London Town. The album was recorded between LA, Nashville and Walthamstow, with each of these vastly different places leaving an indelible mark on the songs. Their debut album Over the Silvery Lake came out in March 2016.

The band is made up of songwriter, singer and guitarist Richard Olson, Sam Ferman on bass, Paulie Cobra on drums, Patrick Ralla on banjo, guitar, keyboards and assorted instruments, with pedal steel courtesy of Horse and Joe Harvey Whyte.

The Hanging Stars place themselves firmly as part of a long folk tradition encompassing European and North American influences – as a continuation rather than a pastiche of these styles.

On their fourth studio album, The Hanging Stars edge out from under the shadow of their classic country-rock influences and exude even more of their own personalities. Recorded at Edwyn Collins’ studio, ‘Hollow Heart’ explores the more psychedelic side of Americana and country rock, using classic Byrds-ian jangle pop and Gram Parsons’ emotionality as touchstones.      

Support comes via Palomino Kings, a Colchester rock 'n' roll band, performing Americana / Alt-folk songs with energy, grit and feeling. A dynamic rhythm section, atmospheric country bends, and hammond organ swells from the band underpin singer Gavin Bowern's honest and heartfelt songwriting, dirty guitars, and emotive vocals.

    Th beer choice was very good, the hosting great but the only thing that let the evening down was the food. It tasted great but the quantities of the first three courses were very small in my opinion and we had to order extra sides in order to fill us up. For that cost you would expect more volume.
