Hugh Cornwell is heading to the region as the singer-songwriter-guitarist hits the road in support of his 10th solo album.

Tracks from his new Moments Of Madness record – including latest single Coming Out Of The Wilderness – will feature in the shows at The Apex, Bury St Edmunds, on Thursday, November 17, and Norwich Waterfront on Tuesday, December 6 (the final night of the UK tour).

The second half of the sets will comprise songs from Cornwell’s days in The Stranglers.

Moments Of Madness, which is Cornwell’s first album in four years, sees the veteran deliver his distinctive vocals and storytelling while continuing to experiment.

“It’s like I’ve got a stew pot of sounds where I’ve put in a bit of Joe Meek, a bit of Lou Reed, a flavour of The Doors, a bit of this, a bit of that and I mix it all up and it tastes good,” he said.

“I’m like a cook when I make records in that I don’t follow any recipe.”
