British Sea Power live dates. Mercury Prize Nominees; British Sea Power have announced a brand new UK tour for February 2011 in conjunction with the release of their fourth album ‘Valhalla Dancehall’. BSP’s fourth studio album, Valhalla Dancehall, was written and recorded on Skye and in a remote farmhouse, near Selmeston in East Sussex. The title hints at some wild internationalist daydream ‘ a mix of glowery Norse mythos and jam-happy Jamaican discos. The album has a glorious scope, moving from the windswept nine-minute meditation of Once More Now to the neat electronic pop of Living Is So Easy. Recordings were made during Britain’s coldest winter for 30 years. BSP’s inventive live shows have become a latterday rock institution. BSP have been acknowledged by the great institutions: David Bowie, the National Maritime Museum, Jarvis Cocker, the British Horseracing Authority. They are a band who tour giant American stadiums with old pals The Killers, but a band who also make singles with ancient West Country hitmakers The Wurzels. BSP are a band who play forests and giant rock halls as specially requested guests of The Flaming Lips, The Strokes and Pulp. But they’re also a band who stage their album launch parties in remote Sussex pubs where their own special guests are The Copper Family, a clan of Sussex folk singers who’ve been going for 200 years. No other band did this. Most likely no other band could. To See British Sea Power live:
