“Though our hearts and souls are tuned to the songs which came before us, we bring you new words and music forged from our own experiences, from the lows and the loves of our lives.
“Our art is energy and our hope is unity. Our pleasure is to please: let the audience be the acid test and let the music speak for itself…”
Founded in their native North-West England in 2010, Merry Hell have risen to become festival favourites. With their albums finding favour with critics, broadcasters and music fans alike, Merry Hell make a welcome return to Darwen Library Theatre this January for a repeat 2018’s barnstorming show!
The group have continued to develop their reputation as on-stage favourites, enjoying appearances at many prestigious festivals.
They have released five self-produced videos, including a film celebrating their live energy and the exuberance of their fans. October 2011 saw the release of their debut album, Blink and You Miss It to universally excellent reviews.
Their second album, Head Full of Magic, Shoes Full of Rain was released in May 2013 to similar critical acclaim, gaining five star reviews and album of the year nominations and awards.
Increasingly widespread radio airplay, especially on the specialist folk/roots shows, is helping to propel this band further into prominence.
March, 2015 saw the release of their third album, There’s A Ghost In Our House and Other Stories…, to even greater critical enthusiasm both at home and, increasingly, around the world.
Their most recent album, Bloodlines presents the band’s most mature and innovative work to date. Its call for togetherness as the antidote for personal and political division resonated with existing fans and new listeners alike.
Fresh from winning Best Band and Best Live Act at the Folking Awards, and with their new single ‘Bury Me Naked’ receiving great reviews, things are going great for the band.
This show is not to be missed!
