“We’re really excited to be heading back out on the road and playing venues up and down the country for the first time in too long,” wrote Hard-Fi frontman Richard Archer in a press release.
“When we announced we were playing some shows again, so many people asked us when we were coming to their town, so hopefully everyone will be able to get to one of the shows,” he continued.
“We’re really looking forward to seeing our fans again and maybe meeting some new ones. We will of course be playing the tunes they’ve been desperate to hear, but everyone should keep their ears out for something new too.”
Hard-Fi were formed in 2003 in Staines-upon-Thames, Surrey. In 2005 they released their debut album, The Stars Of CCTV, which was nominated for the Mercury Music Award for Best Album and yielded three hit singles – Hard To Beat, Living For The Weekend and Cash Machine.
Their second album, Once Upon A Time In The West, was released in 2007 and hit No 1 in the UK chart in its first week. Third album, Killer Sounds (2011), made No 9 in the UK chart. In May 2013, the band announced that founder member Ross Phillips was leaving the band and they went on hiatus after releasing a greatest hits album and playing a sell-out final show at the Bloomsbury Ballroom, London.
