Make Space at Esquires - the Liverpudlian indie-aces make their Bedford return

Space are returning to Esquires later this week.

The band will play in support of their 2016 new studio album Give me your Future, and arrive in Bedford on Saturday (May 20).

The new album was recorded and produced by Grammy and Brit award winning producer Steve Levine who has also knob-twiddled for The Clash, Culture Cub, Beach Boys and Gary Moore to name a few.

2015 was a good year for the band with Female of the Species making the top of the album charts with as part of the TFI Album.

Their last album release was 'Attack Of The Mutant 50ft Kebab'- their first new album for nine years.

Lead singer Tommy Scott’s influence for the new songs stemmed from his infamous fascination with science and horror films, and he likens the album to a 'Fifties B-Movie' for the ears.

Proud to note how Space have always stood out from the 'normal,' Tommy concedes that their last album has the usual signature Space quirkiness, with some extra ingredients added to the mix - he describes the songs as a mish-mash of SKA, Punk and the classic Space sound.

"When we tour, we love playing the old stuff, but I always knew I wanted to record some new material. We know the fans like to hear the old classics from our multi-million selling albums 'Spiders' and 'Tin Planet', but we wanted to give them something extra," he explained.

"The title track on the album is my favourite song from the record and is the story of how a fifty-foot kebab from a side street takeaway shop wreaks its revenge on the ailing high street. It's a message about survival in a tongue-in-cheek way."

Space have sold more than two million albums worldwide and released 10 Top 40 hits.

Support at the date will come from Howlin Owls.  Tickets are £15 adv, on sale here
