Audiences in Bury St Edmunds can prepare to be ‘spooked’ as a renowned male singing group returns to the Apex.

The Spooky Men’s Chorale, ennobled by improbable facial hair and dignified by cavernous vocals, will perform at the venue on Tuesday, August 11.

Since emerging from the Blue Mountains in Australia in 2001, the male vocal powerhouses have been gleefully dismantling and reassmebling the world of men’s singing.

They employ a devastating combination of honed musical sensibilities and spine-tingling deep harmonies, while relishing in extreme silliness to explore the paradoxes of modern day masculinity.

The repertoire, which began with Georgian table songs, crafted ballads and vaudevillian nonsense, has expanded in various directions.

It now includes some sharp and witty commentary, a surfing anthem and a mock Sufi ode to the Bee Gees, all performed with passion and a twinkle in their eyes.

The Spooky Men’s last UK tour saw them perform a number of sell-out concerts at major venues, including the Apex.

Continuing their global conquest with their sixth visit to Britain, the Spookies arrive brandishing their fifth album, an idyllic and resonant contrast to their previous four records.
