About Kristin Hersh
Indie rock legend Kristin Hersh, most recognized as the frontperson for the influential art-punk band Throwing Muses and power trio 50FOOTWAVE, will kick off a short visit to the UK this summer with her sold-out performance at Robert Smith’s Meltdown Festival on June 21st, followed by a set of solo dates in Glasgow, Newcastle, Halifax, Cambridge, Ramsgate and Brighton.

‘LAX’, a preview track from of her forthcoming album ‘Possible Dust Clouds’, slated for release later this year, can be streamed HERE.

Throwing Muses first gained traction in the early ‘80s, playing with similarly singular artists, such as The Pixies and Dinosaur Jr. They continue to release groundbreaking music, most recently with 2013’s double CD masterpiece ‘Purgatory/Paradise’. Kristin’s solo career spun off in 1994 with the release of ‘Hips and Makers’, a widely acclaimed album that included ‘Your Ghost’, a duet with R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe. Since then, Kristin has released a steady stream of distinctly individual solo albums, including 2010’s ‘Crooked’, released as her first in the inventive book/CD format for which she is now known.

2016’s ‘Wyatt at the Coyote Palace’, on which Kristin played all of the instruments, received rave reviews; an explosive defined by blistering guitars, powerful drumming and her signature visceral vocal technique. Her poignant true stories bring the listener into what the BBC calls Hersh’s “dark and dizzy world”.

In 2004, Kristin formed the noise rock power trio 50FOOTWAVE, releasing a series of frighteningly intense mini-albums, all available for download free of charge. Their most recent ‘Bath White’ EP was described as “a series of loud explosions, of velvet like dreams all intermingled at the same time. Bath White takes no prisoners.” Kristin’s writing career has flourished with the highly acclaimed ‘Paradoxical Undressing’ (released as ‘Rat Girl’ in the USA) and the award-winning ‘Don’t Suck, Don’t Die’, a personal account of her long friendship with the late Vic Chesnutt, as well as the enchanting books which now accompany each of her record releases.
