Propelled by lead singer David Gedge’s perpetual broken heart and incisively brazen lyrics, The Wedding Present continue to influence today’s indie rock scene, as can be evinced in the work of British Sea Power and The Pains of Being Pure At Heart among countless others.2012 saw the release of The Wedding Present’s eighth studio album, the well-received Valentina, (released on their own Scopitones label and licensed in Australia to Lost And Lonesome), which was followed by an unflinching touring schedule.Having so enjoyed their recent Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide shows, The Wedding Present are set to return to Australia in Feb/March 2013 to delight fans with tracks from Valentina and their extensive back-catalogue.Supported by Seja and The Eversons.
