The rock legends Terrorvision are back with a bang in an exciting new seven city UK tour to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the release of platinum album Regular Urban Survivors. The band’s unique sound and style made them a household name for rock fans in the 90’s and despite a brief split in the early noughties, their performances are still as full of energy as ever. This first headline tour in three years promises to be one of the most interesting since their reformation and you can experience it live when it comes to Engine Rooms in Southampton this November!
The band formed in 1987 by Mark Yates & Leigh Marklew, originally as a glam rock band under the name “The Spoilt Brats”. However, in 1991 they changed their name to “TERRORVISION!” and their first taste of mainstream success came a year later with the their song My House from their debut album Formaldehyde.
After this, success came thick and fast for the group and many songs from their second album How to Makes Friends and Influence People were chart toppers, with particular success from tracks Oblivion and Tequila. They went on to release three more hugely successful albums and toured with some of the biggest names in rock, including The Ramones, Motorhead and Def Leppard before the band split in 2001.
They band returned in 2005 and released their first new album in ten years, Super Deluxe, in February 2011. Unfortunately, we didn’t hear much from the band after its release and the subsequent tour that followed until earlier this year, when they got many fans exciting after performing several gigs as special guests to London rock outfit ‘Thunder‘.
Thus the announcement of this tour had fans chomping at the bit to get tickets, as this will not only be their first headline tour in three years, but also the first and potentially only chance to see the band’s most acclaimed album performed live in full. The album, which boasts hits such as Bad Actress & Perseverance, is their highest charting album ever and remains a huge fan favourite today.
As well as visiting Southampton on the 26th of November, The Regular Urban Survivors tour will also take them to cities such as Glasgow, Cardiff and London throughout November; and whether you’re a diehard fan or not, it certainly doesn’t look like one to be missed.
