As part of the annual In The City convention the re-invigorated 80's Matchbox appear in Manchester as part of a tour in October, in anticipation of their brand new album planned for release in early 2010:
It seems no matter how hard you try, you just cannot destroy the Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster. Pummelled relentlessly by the wheels of catastrophe and forced off road by the signs of confusion it is back, hurtling towards rock and roll like a crazed madman, foaming at the mouth, ready to strike down his Nemesis, as if that was his only reason to live.
Times have been rocky for the Eighties Matchbox, with Rich Fownes , the golden guitar hero leaving, and being replaced by Tristan Mclenahan, the goliath, the cogs grind. But now back again with all its pistons they have written the 3rd album, recorded in France ready to be released upon a world plagued by mediocrity like a cure for all its ills. With a plan to release early in the new year, ask not what the Eighties Matchbox can do for music, but what music can do for the Eighties Matchbox… Behold.
