The band are excited about their as-yet-untitled Youth-produced release, explaining on their blog how they believe they have become more creative this time, "The song writing sessions have been done with some band members working alone and on other occasions together ... We've had the rare pleasure of recording late night jam sessions at Britannia Row, this has given us renewed creativity and insight into our collective musical outlooks."
Speaking about the Charlatans 'Some Friendly' UK gigs in May -- in Glasgow, Blackpool and London -- singer Tim Burgess has revealed that initially the band didn't agree to mark their 20th anniversary. Speaking to BBC 6 Music, Burgess said, "As with everything, there are five members of the band and some people want to do stuff some people don't. We're pretty much the only band from around that time that's still going and has never split up."
Burgess also said, once they thought it through, they agreed, "This year is going to be marking something that's old and then looking ahead again."
The reissue of 'Some Friendly' will feature an additional disc, with their Peel Sessions included.
The Charlatans play the following UK shows, they then return to the UK to perform at V Festival in August.
Glasgow Barrowlands, Scotland (May 14)
Blackpool Empress Ballroom, England (May 15)
London Roundhouse, England (May 31)
