Happy days for Twilight Sad

The Twilight Sad.
The Twilight Sad.

A band with proud local connections has done it again.

Just days after securing a Sunday slot at T in the Park with some of the biggest names in the business, The Twilight Sad have seized a top support slot with a band that needs no introduction.

Because it’s legendary Welsh rock outfit The Manic Street Preachers.

The lads from Kilsyth and Banton are billed as special guests at the Edinburgh Corn Exchange on Thursday April 3 and a gig at Glasgow Barrowland on Friday April 4. However tickets for the second gig have now sold out.

The band also have their own tour in a move which will see them take to the stage in locations such as, for example, Bristol, London and Manchester.

A gig at the high prestige Primavera festival in Barcelona is also on the cards, as the lads pull their gear across Europe to the Catalan capital.

The band have also undertaken something a bit different after securing a recording session with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra.

Together they completed a recording session at Paisley Abbey and the results can now be downloaded from the band’s website.
