Critically acclaimed Quireboys album re-released with bonus Live Tracks from Special Show at London’s O2 Forum Kentish Town - 14th September 2018 Rock and roll heroes The Quireboys will put on a capital show in Kentish Town as they celebrate the band’s iconic Homewreckers & Heartbreakers record in style. Ten years after releasing the album that cemented a long overdue comeback, the band will be joined by H. E.A. T., Aaron Buchanan & The Cult Classics and Those Damn Crows at London’s O2 Forum. And the one-off gig will be an opportunity for fans to snap up the re-released version of Homewreckers - a Quireboys classic that continues to delight a decade down the line with some quality bonus live tracks from the 30th Anniversary aptly entitled ‘Back at the Moon’, where they played their very first gig.
The 2008 album will be played in its entirety at the hotly anticipated September 14 show. And according to Guy Griffin, it’s impossible to underestimate the importance of The Quireboys’ critically acclaimed fifth studio album. “Homewreckers & Heartbreakers was the record that re-established the band,” insisted the long serving guitarist. “We’d been back together for a few years but until then we were still testing the waters. “Homewreckers & Heartbreakers was the start of something special - until then everything had been done in fits and starts. But we’d played a lot of shows, we’d identified our sound and we had a settled line-up. We went into a great place in Bedfordshire, called Lost Boys Studio, to make the record. It’s in the middle of nowhere and there were no distractions. We came out with an album that, in my view, is second only to A Bit Of What You Fancy.” A decade down the line Homewreckers & Heartbreakers is still writ large across a Quireboys live show – and for good reason.
