Squeeze, the seminal British pop act whose songs have tenderly and wittily chronicled life and love stretching across four decades, are launching a U.S. tour, their first as a band in four years. Squeeze will be supporting their latest album Cradle to the Grave that was released October 2015 their first album of new songs in 17 years.
Squeeze have long been a captivating live act with an array of chart hits and a vast catalogue including songs such as “Black Coffee In Bed,” “Up The Junction,” “Tempted,” “Take Me I’m Yours,” “Slap And Tickle,” and “Pulling Mussels (From The Shell).” The shows will also include songs from their latest album Cradle To The Grave, their first collection of new tracks since 1998. Cradle To The Grave marked the complete and triumphant reintegration of the masterful songwriting axis of Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook in a beautifully observed series of fond vignettes about childhood, growing up, and the absurdities of the ride through life we’re all on.
Some of the songs, including the title track, were taking shape as the band performed their Pop-Up Shop tour in 2012 and was the basis for their first album of all-new material since Domino in 1998. Squeeze’s last studio release, Spot The Difference in 2010, saw them reworking many of their best-known hits dating back to the early days of their career, in order to give them more creative control over their catalogue.
“We’ve grown up a lot in the last few years, musically,” continues Difford. “For the first five years back together, we were saying ‘this is where we came from’. Now, this is where we are. We still love and own our past, but as musicians we needed to grow.”
Squeeze’s current lineup includes Glenn Tilbrook (vocals/guitar), Chris Difford (vocals/guitar), Simon Hanson (drums), Stephen Large (keyboard), and Lucy Shaw (bass).
Opening for Squeeze is Look Park - Chris Collingwood of Fountains of Wayne's new project.
