Hurts have announced they will release ‘Blind’, the second single from their new album ‘Exile’, on 12th May through Major Label and have announced a UK and European tour in October and November, which will be the bands biggest tour to date.
Second album, ‘Exile’, was released last week and has already peaked in the top 10 in 30 countries with a #5 midweek and a #9 chart position in the UK album chart.
‘Blind’ is the follow-up to ‘Miracle’, the band’s first single from their new album, which received strong support from the likes of Huw Stephens and Zane Lowe at Radio 1 and the band performed the single on both the Jonathan Ross show and Graham Norton’s Comic Relief show. New single ‘Blind’ is an epic and anthemic track that builds into a huge chorus and is sure to become a live favourite.
‘Exile’ follows the band’s debut album ‘Happiness’, which entered the UK album charts at #4 with over 25,000 sales making Hurts the fastest selling new band of 2010 in the UK.
Hurts have just announced a UK and European tour in October and November this year. This will be the bands biggest ever tour with 19 dates in total, and more dates still to be announced, commencing on 25th October at Manchester Apollo and 26th October at London’s Troxy.
