Pale Fires are performing in Bury St Edmunds tonight just weeks after releasing their debut EP.

The hardworking band, made up of guitarist and vocalist Oli Swan, singer Leo Runswick, bass player Harry Wreathall and drummer Jean Stevens, have recently hit the Shrubbery Recording Studio in Bury working on their next release.

Oli said the band were excited to be playing tonight’s gig at the Hunter Club.

He said: “We have done a lot of the recording side recently so are very keen to get back to the live thing.

“But we are eager to have the live gigs as a completely different experience rather than just playing what we release.

“Live is where we are most happy.”

The band released their debut EP, Louring Skies, on April 18.

“We’ve got another coming out soon too.

“We plan to release a series of four long EPs.”

Oli said the band had something special in store for tonight’s gig.

He said: “It is going to be pretty wild – we will be trying a lot of stuff for the first time.

“There are a lot of new elements we are bringing in like our new visuals which are triggered by how we play. We have also got a huge Chinese gong as well for the first time.

“It will be a spectacle definitely and that’s how we like it.
“We like to improvise and keep our live performances on the edge – teetering on the brink of brilliance and collapse.”
