Original and eclectic, The Divine Comedy are live at the Baths Hall in Scunthorpe this weekend as part of their new UK tour.

Best known for hits like Something For The Weekend and National Express, the band’s new album Foreverland came out last month.

Since The Divine Comedy started in 1989, frontman Neil Hannon has proved to be one of the UK’s most original songwriters.

Foreverland, exemplifies this, with references to everything from Catherine The Great to the French Foreign Legion.

Neil says of the new record: “It’s about meeting your soul mate and living happily ever after and then what comes after happily ever after.”

While not releasing a record since 2010’s Bang Goes The Knighthood, Neil has certainly kept himself busy.

He co-wrote a second album for acclaimed cricket-themed project, The Duckworth Lewis Method, composed a choral work for the Royal Festival Hall’s newly renovated organ entitled To Our Fathers In Distress, and oversaw the transfer of his musical, Swallows And Amazons, to the West End stage.

They are at the Baths Hall on Sunday, October 16.
