Razorlight have revealed plans for a one-off UK show to mark the 20th anniversary of their iconic debut album ‘Up All Night’.

London O2 Academy Brixton, 21 Nov

Tickets on sale Friday (05 July) at 10am from Ticketmaster

The show will see the band play the album in its entirety, followed by a further set of new and old songs.

The new live dates will follow the release of a deluxe edition of the album on 28 June 2024, exactly 20 years after its original release. The digital reissue will include 17 additional B-sides, some of which have not previously been available on streaming platforms.

Frontman Johnny Borrell commented, “I’ve been looking back on that time because of getting involved with the documentary etc and yeah, it was a wild, messy, unpredictable, f**k or be f**ked, leave everything out there kind of record. Even people in indie clubs who say they hate me always say, ‘ Well your first album was really good’ Maybe they’ll drop the hate but keep listening. We’re still in great shape and we still rock f**king hard so it should be a great show.”

In addition, a mini documentary about the album is also coming soon. The Making Of ‘Up All Night’ features frank interviews with people who worked on the record or were around the band in 2003/4, allowing for the first time real insight into the circumstances of one of the decade’s defining records, as reviews at the time testified.

CHECK OUT THE OFFICIAL TRAILER HERE:

Released in June 2004, ‘Up All Night’ peaked at No.3 in the UK Official Albums charts and went on to sell over 1.2 million copies and achieve 4x platinum certification. The album spawned six singles; ‘Rock ‘N’ Roll Lies’, ‘Rip It Up’, ‘Stumble and Fall’, ‘Golden Touch’, ‘Vice’ and ‘Somewhere Else’.

Recorded at Sawmills Studio and mixed at Sphere Studios by John Cornfield, ‘Up All Night’ features Johnny Borrell (vocals and guitar) Björn Ågren (guitar), Carl Dalemo (bass) and Shïan Smith-Pancorvo (drums).

Andy Burrows (drums) replaced Shïan in 2004, shortly after the album had been recorded.

With new music in the works due for 2024 release, Razorlight will pause to go back to the start at Brixton, before pushing ahead with a new phase of career best music.
