Stereophonics are a Welsh rock band that formed in 1992 in the village of Cwmaman in the Cynon Valley. Described as "classic UK rock delivered with whiskey vocals," the band have been summarized as possessing a sound akin to the genres of alternative rock and "British traditional rock". Stereophonics have released nine studio albums, including six UK number one albums, their latest album being Keep the Village Alive (2015).
A successful compilation album, Decade in the Sun, was released in November 2008 and charted at number two in the United Kingdom. Upon their release of Pull the Pin, they became the eighth group to achieve five consecutive UK number one albums (after the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, ABBA, Genesis, Oasis, Blur and U2). The band have also been praised for their live performances, which have landed them headlining slots at many of the UK and Ireland's most high-profile music festivals, including Reading and Leeds in 2000, Glastonbury in 2002, V festival in 2002, the Isle of Wight in 2004 and 2009, and Oxegen in 2010.
The rock veterans will be touring in support of their upcoming new album ‘Scream Above The Sounds‘, due for release on November 3.
