Press release:

95bFM, CRS and Live Nation are proud to present the return of legendary alt-pop four-piece The Breeders, in a one-night-only show at The Powerstation on December 11th. Initially formed as a side project by Kim Deal of the Pixies and Tanya Donnelly (Throwing Muses, Belly), the Breeders went on to become one of the era-defining indie acts of the nineties.

Best known for their album Last Splash, recorded in 1993 by Deal, her twin sister Kelley, Jim Macpherson and Josephine Wiggs and released on 4AD, The Breeders were propelled by the success of their instantly-recognisable hit track ‘Cannonball’, which was accompanied by the iconic MTV video directed by Kim Gordon and Spike Jonze.

A year on the road saw them land a coveted support slot on Nirvana’s In Utero tour, an epic and still unforgettable appearance at Lollapalooza ‘94, closely followed by their album going platinum, with the Melody Maker naming them “...probably the most casually brilliant band around”.

Almost 25 years on, the band returned with a brand new album All Nerve in early 2018, reuniting all four members from the Last Splash era, and serving up more of thebeloved signature sound that launched them into the collective-consciousness of the 90’s grunge-pop scene and keeps them as one of the most enduringly-beloved indie bands to this day.

“...there’s a real concentrated power about its sound, which is intimate and raw, befitting its title: the vocals close-miked, the band recorded in such a way that they sound as if they’re playing live a few feet away from you. For an album full of space and silence, it’s remarkably relentless and weighty...” - The Guardian on All Nerve.
