Front man of legendary Welsh band Super Furry Animals and Mercury Nominated outfit Neon Neon, Gruff Rhys will play a special full band show at The Live Rooms, Wrexham on Friday 7th December. 

The show follows the release of Babelsberg earlier this year – Gruff’s fifth solo album, and his first record release on Rough Trade Records since 2007’s classicCandylion. 

The album’s ten tracks were initially recorded in early 2016 in a whirlwind three day session. The band he gathered for the record were his regular drummer Kliph Scurlock (ex-Flaming Lips) and multi-instrumentalists Stephen Black (Sweet Baboo) and Osian Gwynedd. 

Over  the  course  of  Babelsberg’s  forty  something  minutes,  Gruff  manages  to  perfectly  document  our  troubled  and  troubling  times  with  humour,  grace  and  always  addictive  melody.  In  a  career  that’s  spanned  three  decades,  two  languages,  multiple  bands,  offshoots,  collaborations  and  one  boundless  imagination,  Babelsberg  is  arguably  Gruff’s  finest  set  of  songs  to  date.

As if releasing a new album isn’t enough, Gruff Rhys recently made his debut at Edinburgh Fringe Festival with a run of eight sold out shows, and will be extensively touring the US, Europe, and the UK, before appearing in Wrexham with his full band on Friday 7th December.
