New Romantic pioneers Visage bring their live show to Glee Club Cardiff on Sunday 21st July, and Glee Club Birmingham on Tuesday 23rd July 2013.
Visage appeared out of the New Wave times and became pioneers of the New Romantic movement, also emerging from the London club Blitz, a neo-glam nightspot which stood in stark contrast to the prevailing punk mentality of the moment.
Visage signed to Martin Rushents Genetic Records to release Tar, followed by their self-titled debut album, which yielded the major single in ‘Fade to Grey’ – an instant club classic which heralded synth pop’s imminent commercial breakthrough.
Further hits followed with ‘Mind Of A Toy’, ‘Visage’, ‘The Damned Don’t Cry’, ‘Night Train’ and ‘Pleasure Boys’.
Their new album Hearts and Knives is out now. Their live set will feature new tracks and all the classic Visage hits.
