THE CORAL

‘Move Through The Dawn’ was recorded at Parr Street Studios in Liverpool and produced by The Coral and Rich Turvey. The album is the influential Hoylake five-piece’s follow-up to 2016’s critically acclaimed ‘Distance Inbetween’, which featured the BBC 6Music playlisted singles ‘Miss Fortune’, Holy Revelation’ and ‘Million Eyes’.

Nick Power, The Coral’s keyboardist, has written a new book, ‘Into The Void’, which will be published by Ebacc concurrently with the new album. Powers’ third book, ‘Into The Void’ is an insightful, amusing and evocative first hand account of the recording, release and touring of ‘Distance Inbetween’, which came after a five-year hiatus for the band.

Since their debut EP release in 2001 The Coral have sold over a million UK albums, with five reaching the Top 10 including 2003’s chart-topping ‘Magic and Medicine’. Their eight Top 40 singles include ‘Dreaming Of You’, ‘In The Morning’, ‘Pass It On’, and ‘Don’t Think You’re The First’.

STAFF COMMENTS

Andy says: Welcome to the West Coast, of The Wirral that is! Lovely mellow sounds and CSN style harmonies take you to a Pacific ocean blue, via The Mersey, of course! This mood suits The Coral as they've possibly turned in their most tuneful collection of songs so far.

The Coral

Magic And Medicine

    The Coral are an English rock band, formed in 1996 by Ian Skelly, Paul Duffy, James Skelly, Lee Southall and Bill Ryder-Jones. The band first emerged during the early 2000s and found success with their debut album The Coral [MOVLP338]. Their self-titled debut album was nominated for the 2002 Mercury Music Prize and later voted the fourth best album of the year by NME Magazine.

    Magic and Medicine is the second album by The Coral, released in 2003 in the United Kingdom, where it debuted at number 1 in the charts. The singles “Don’t Think You’re the First” and “Pass It On” entered the top ten in the UK.

    The album title originates from a lyric in Time Travel, the hidden track on the band’s debut album: “Well there’s a war going on, ain’t the obvious one. It’s between magic and medicine”.

    This is The Coral’s last album with Bill Ryder-Jones, who departed in 2008 to start a very successful solo-career.

      Coloured LP Info: The first (limited) run of this tenth anniversary edition is pressed on 180 gram transparent red vinyl. Only 1,500 copies are available. ONLY 500 IN UK!!!

      'Distance Inbetween' is The Coral’s first album of original material since 2010’s Butterfly House, a gap punctuated by last year’s surprise release of their lost album, 'The Curse of Love'. Since their debut EP release in 2001 the band have sold over a million UK albums, with five reaching the Top 10 including 2003’s chart-topping 'Magic and Medicine'. Their eight Top 40 singles include Dreaming Of You, In The Morning, Pass It On, and Don’t Think You’re The First.

      Recorded at Liverpool’s Parr Street Studio with co-producer Richard Turvey, 'Distance Inbetween' was recorded live and mostly in just one take. The seams of each of the album’s 12-tracks are purposely rough-hewn and pave the way for a new visceral sound from a totally reenergised band.

      "Before we started making the album we had discussed that we wanted it to be more minimal and rhythmical,” explains James Skelly (vocals, guitars). “We thought ‘if you've got a rhythm section that’s been playing together for almost twenty years, why not make that the centre of the songs?’"

      On the album James, Ian Skelly (drums/percussion/vocals), Nick Power (keyboard/vocals), and Paul Duffy (bass/keyboards/vocals) are joined by Coral newbie, guitarist Paul Molloy, formerly of The Zutons.

      “Paul was playing with Ian in their band, Serpent Power, and we'd all been mates with him for years,” says James. “We already had a couple of tunes recorded and Ian suggested Paul add some guitar. His parts really enhanced the tracks; he understood where he needed to leave space. From that point we didn't look back. We had a full line-up and were confident we could make an album that would stand next to the others."

      On 'Distance Inbetween' listeners are invited into The Coral’s world of Richard Yates’ books, Alan Moore comics, 1980's toys, the sound of krautrock compilations and Muddy Waters’ Electric Mud, and Gregory Crewdson’s darkly beautiful photography.

      STAFF COMMENTS

      Andy says: Based on The Wirral, which geographers will tell you is directly between Liverpool and Wales, it's heartening that this classic Northern band sound precisely like a blend between Gorkys and Super Furries on the one hand, and Shack and the Bunnymen on the other. Throw in The Doors with a sprinkling of 60's psych and you have a superb blend: cosmosis if you will! This is their come back album. And it's excellent!

      Vinyl comes with CD version of the album enclosed.

      The heart of The Coral has always been the tension between the classic songwriting that runs through their veins and produced such singles as "Pass It On", "Jacqueline", "Dreaming Of You" and "Bill McCai" and the experimentalism that was first spotted on debut EP "Shadows Fall" and led through the compilation album, "Nightfreak And The Sons Of Becker" to the sea shanty of "Remember Me" on "Roots And Echoes". The Coral are a rarity in music, a band that make tunes that appeal to everyman whilst producing those tunes in such a way and with such understanding of their medium that critics are minded to say 'James Skelly is one of the finest writers, and voices, in British music today' (Q).
