10TH ANNIVERSARY OF DEBUT ALBUM THE TRICK TO LIFE
Tickets on sale Wed 19 Jul

2007 saw The Hoosiers explode upon an unsuspecting public with their debut album The Trick To Life, which reached the top of the album charts and spawned the indie-pop classics Worried About Ray and Goodbye Mr A, which still pack out indie dance floors a decade later.

Never released on vinyl, the band will be selling a new limited edition vinyl pressing and expanded 2CD edition of their debut when they undertake a huge UK tour that will see them play the album in its entirety, something they’ve never done before. The multi-platinum success of their debut album raised huge expectations for its follow-up, not least at The Hoosiers’ record label.

Gone is the self-consciousness of the dog days around their second album; gone, too, the self-doubt. In their place is a deeply rooted – and hard-won – confidence, and a determination to lock back in to the freedom and joy of the early days.
