Since coming off the road after their last 95 date World tour which began at SXSW in Texas in 2009 and ended with another triumphant main-stage appearance at T In The Park in 2010, Craig and Charlie Reid then spent a year writing, subsequently recording their ninth studio album last autumn in Bath with producer Steve Evans at the helm.
The album entitled 'Like Comedy' is released was released earlier this summer by the leading and vibrant independent label Cooking Vinyl.
Strikingly individual, twin brothers Craig and Charlie Reid have over the years enjoyed huge success across the globe as the emotional honesty, political fire, wit and sing-along raucousness of their songs and their extensive touring has enlightened and entertained fans new and old. The Proclaimers have carved out a niche for themselves in the netherworld where pop, folk, new wave and punk collide. In the process they have enjoyed Gold and Platinum singles and albums in UK, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
The last few years has see The Proclaimers grace main stages at the likes of V Festival, T In The Park, Isle Of Wight Festival, Womad and Glastonbury in-between regular touring across the globe. Craig and Charlie have reached the rarefied status that few have been able to achieve: with nearly three decades of career longevity, they are as innovative as ever and with every album and show played, they've continued to garner new fans.
