Starsailor’s initial run of success saw both their ‘Love is Here’ debut album and the 2003 follow-up ‘Silence is Easy’ hit #2 on the UK charts as they raced to a total of 3 million sales. After a five-year hiatus, the band reformed in 2014, enjoying triumphant festival performances at the Isle of Wight Festival (UK), Pentaport (Korea), Rock Zottegem (Belgium) to name a few as well as a UK tour with James (the band). 2015 saw them tour the UK, Europe, China, Korea, and a co-headline tour of the US and Canada with Embrace. The band now return to mark the 20th anniversary of their debut album LOVE IS HERE with a home town show at Warrington Parr Hall where the album will be played in its entirety.
On May 20, 2009, Starsailor were named Hard Rock’s “Philanthropic Artist of the Year” in recognition of the work they’d done in support of the Caron Keating Foundation, the AECC of Barcelona and Nordoff–Robbins Music Therapy, as well as having contributed an exclusive cover of Graham Nash’s Military Madness to the World Hunger Year Serve 3 charity album. The band have enjoyed more than their fair share of prestigious gigs, supporting the likes of The Rolling Stones, The Police, The Killers, and U2, and have sold over 3 million albums worldwide.
