We are delighted to announce that Matthew Ryan will be playing select duo shows including legendary Borderline London in addition to his tour with The Gaslight Anthem.
Matthew Ryan is experiencing a kind of noisy renaissance. It began in 2014 with the release of Boxers, a fevered and smart rock ‘n’ roll record about the working class, produced by Kevin Salem. May 2017 will see the follow-through with Hustle Up Starlings, a heart-on-the-sleeve collection of silvery anthems that further illustrate Ryan’s reinvigorated love of language, noise and cinema produced by Brian Fallon.
“…Hustle Up Starlings proves that Matthew Ryan’s music can hang with those of the heroes he mentioned, even as he’s doing his fans a favour by combining career longevity with musical integrity.” – American Songwriter
“Always count on Matthew Ryan to come in quietly and leave you knocked out on the floor.” – Paste
To celebrate this tour. Matthew Ryan is also releasing ‘Starlings Unadorned’. This is a 12 track collection of some stripped down and cinematic acoustic versions of selected songs from Hustle Up Starlings, along with some previously unreleased songs and demos.
Matthew Ryan and The Northern Wires are on tour with The Gaslight Anthem from 20th – 29th July and then Matthew will perform some intimate duo shows across the UK inc Durham Launderette.
