We’re delighted to announce that we will be special guests for Etienne Daho at his show at la Philharmonie in Paris on November 11th. We met Etienne 25 years ago at a show of ours in Paris and before long were collaborating on the Reserection EP and ‘He’s On The Phone’ single. It’s long been a dream to play a show together and we’re looking forward to being back in Paris.

Tiger Bay at The Barbican
With the London Contemporary Orchestra

We’re really excited to announce news of this special show in London in May.
It’s the first time we’ve performed with a full orchestra and something we’ve wanted to do since releasing Tiger Bay 25 years ago.
Tickets go on sale to Barbican members from 10am on Thursday 31st January and to non members the following morning, Friday 1st February – click here for tickets.
To mark its 25th anniversary, Saint Etienne announce details of a limited edition boxset of one of their most critically acclaimed albums Tiger Bay.
The lovingly put together box will be released on Heavenly Recordings on Friday 17th May 2019 but will be available to pre-order from the band’s webshop from Tuesday 30th April.
The boxset is sold via the band’s webshop at a reduced rate of £50 (plus P&P) and all those who pre-order by 6th May will receive a free copy of the 4 track Surrey North EP previously only available to those who attended the 2018 Christmas parties in Saltaire and Brighton.
The lavish set included a vinyl version of the original album cut at 45rpm over two discs housed in a beautiful gatefold sleeve, a 12 track vinyl compilation of rarities and demos Tiger Bay – Remains of The Day, a 28-page booklet featuring a wealth of unseen photographs and essay about the making of the album, a 12” x 24” reproduction of the original album poster, a reproduction Hug My Soul window sticker and a reproduction of the original press release and biography from 1994.
At the heart of the set is Tapestry, a 13 track CD album of previously unreleased ‘stripped-back’ versions and arrangements, taken from original master tapes produced and complied by Pete Wiggs.
Tiger Bay as it’s never been heard before and here’s a taster for you:
