THE CORAL

plus support

The Coral are an English rock band, formed in 1996 in Hoylake on the Wirral Peninsula, Merseyside. The band first emerged during the early 2000s and found success with their debut album The Coral (2002) and follow up Magic and Medicine (2003). Their self-titled debut album was nominated for the 2002 Mercury Music Prize and later voted the fourth best album of the year by NME Magazine.

In 2008 guitarist Bill Ryder-Jones left the band. However, the Coral continued as a five-piece. Their seventh album Distance Inbetween was released in 2016.

Despite the "guitar group revival" tag, they had little in common with their peers. Their music was a hybrid of psychedelia, Motown, dub reggae, Merseybeat and spaghetti western soundtracks, and their lyrics betrayed an obsession with the sea.

The band's music is a mixture of 1960s-style psychedelia and folk-rock with old-fashioned country and modern indie rock influences.

The Coral's distinctive musical style has strongly influenced many other of the Liverpool-based label's acts, including The Zutons, The Dead 60s and The Rascals.
