Hugh Cornwell of The Stranglers Announces American Tour, Offers Album as Free Download
His recently released eighth album, Hooverdam, produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Liam Watson (White Stripes - 'Elephant') is an eloquent and exciting mix of rhythm & blues, rock and post-punk. Hugh will also cross the Atlantic this Spring and treat his North American fans to his fiery live show.
Though he may be one of the UK's finest talents, Hugh's music has always reached far beyond his homeland. Fittingly, Hooverdam is now available worldwide from his website http://www.hughcornwell.com, which can be viewed in twelve languages (English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic, Farsi, Russian, Mandarin, Turkish, Italian and Japanese). The album is available as a free download and can also be purchased on vinyl and as a triple-sleeved digi-pak, featuring both CD album and live studio performance DVD 'Blueprint' in one package.
The upcoming US tour includes a performance in San Francisco as part of the Jay Siegan Presents "In The Name Of Love", a series of concerts to raise money for the Haiti relief effort. Hugh will be playing along with special guest Kristeen Young at San Francisco's Red Devil Lounge on March 31st. A percentage of ticket sales will be donated to international medical humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders for the victims of Haiti.
