Festival Club - THE TWILIGHT SAD - Burns&Beyond 2022

with special guests CLOTH

Assembly Rooms - Music Hall

Burns&Beyond are proud to present a very special evening of stripped-back, intimate live performance from The Twilight Sad. One of the most important bands to come out of Scotland in recent times, the band will be performing songs from across their critically acclaimed body of work.

From their unassuming origins as a group of school friends drawn together by a shared passion for music to the global touring force they have quietly become, The Twilight Sad’s ascent has been forged the old way with grit, graft and four exceptional studio albums.

Forged in Kilsyth and honed while touring with idols, The Cure, they describe their bold, dark sound as “folk with layers of noise” and their gigs have an electrifying, intensely moody vibe.

Founded by vocalist James Graham and guitarist Andy MacFarlane, and now embracing Johnny Docherty (bass), Brendan Smith (keyboards) and Sebastien Schultz (drums), they describe fifth album It Won’t Be Like This All the Time as a “raw and dynamic take on the stuff of life”.
