Forever Heavely

The Return Of Forever Heavenly has reported that Doves (along with Hot Chip) have been instrumental in resurrecting the legendary Forever Heavenly club night in London.

Legendary London club night Forever Heavenly is set to relaunch next month to coincide with the second of Doves’ two London gigs.

The night, which will return on May 1, was acclaimed over ten years ago for a series of legendary nights at the Turnmills venue.

The night will now return –acting as the unofficial aftershow for Doves’ O2 Academy Brixton gig on the same night –with the likes of Hot Chip and Playgroup getting involved.

The all-nighter will take place at the Corsica Arts Studio in Elephant And Castle.

NME Review:

Doves up next, were returning to the live scene after more than two years away from gigging action.

The band graced the stage without verbal introduction, greeting the audience by playing opener ‘Firesuite’.

They went on to play songs from their Nationwide Mercury Prize-nominated album, 2000’s ‘Lost Souls’, included ‘Sea Song’, ‘Break Me Gently’ and ‘Rise’.

The band also delved into their previous two records, 2002’s ‘The Last Broadcast’ and 2005’s ‘Some Cities’, playing ‘Pounding’, ‘Snowdon’ and ‘Caught By The River’. The latter song was affectionately dedicated to lead singer Jimi Goodwin’s father.

Doves used the opportunity to try out a handful of new songs, playing ‘Winter Hill’, ‘Jetstream’, ‘Kingdom Of Rust’ and ‘The Outsiders’, all contenders for inclusion on the band’s forthcoming new album.
