Band unveils its comeback album

A REFORMED North East band will launch their new album in Morpeth tomorrow evening.

Prelude, primarily know for their a cappella hit After the Goldrush in 1974, have delighted audiences over the years with their delicate harmonies, acoustic rhythms and sympathetic string arrangements.

Various musicians joined Brian and Irene Hume after Ian Vardy left the group in 1986, but in 2009 Vardy came back and the original line-up then worked on some new material.

Their first studio album since 1984 has now been completed.

It features 16 newly-recorded songs and a select few tracks of older material never before released.

The new record will be unveiled at Friday Night Live in Morpeth Conservative Club, Newgate Street.
