IMPACT DATE: 3rd March 2014
90’s favourites Space are back, armed with a new single, album and UK tour with Republica to coincide with the band’s 20th anniversary.
Writing top oddball pop songs is no easy feat, but it’s something Space have been doing for two decades. Fortune Teller is their first single in a decade, and their signature quirky, up-beat pop is a welcome breath of fresh air.
“I’m keeping up with the mystic vibe!” says frontman Tommy Scott, who can’t wait to get back on the road and play the hits – and the new tracks – to their many fans:
“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.”
The platinum selling band came to prominence in the mid-90’s with hit singles such as Female of the Species, Neighbourhood, Me and You Versus the World and The Ballad of Tom Jones.
Space reformed in December 2011 for a special one-off hometown show at the O2 Academy.
The show sold out in double-quick time and the response so positive that they decided to get back in the studio… and they’ve teamed up with fellow 90’s million-sellers Republica for a UK tour in March to coincide with the new single.
“It will be great to see all of the loyal Space fans who have supported us for years, and we’ve also noticed that we have a lot of younger fans out there who are just getting into our music.”
