THE PEARL HARTS have added an extra date to their upcoming UK headline tour in Middlesbrough at the Wesgarth Social Club.

Late 2017 a Middlesbrough venue was reported to have banned female rock singers as their customers believe that they 'can't sing rock', so the band feel that dispelling this myth is important.

Singer / guitarist Kirsty Lowrey commented: "Women have a voice, not just in the rock world, but throughout the music industry - we want to show that women can and will be heard.

"We would like to invite those who are don't think women can sing rock to come down and find out for themselves"

The rock duo are touring in support of their highly anticipated debut album Glitter and Spit, which was released on 23 February.

THE PEARL HARTS' unique brand of rock set them off to a whirlwind start; they were hand-picked to open tours with both Garbage and Skunk Anansie within their first few years of existence and also won many media champions including the likes of NMEClashKerrang Radio. Being 100% DIY makes these achievements all the more impressive.

Having met on the road playing in former bands, lead singer/guitarist Kirsty and drummer/vocalist Sara ran away from their previous lives to become music outlaws on their own terms. Utilising heavy guitars, bouncy grooves and combining Kirsty and Sara’s wide-ranging vocals, THE PEARL HARTS create a unique and innovative barrage of sound. Influences of Black Sabbath, Fleetwood Mac and The Distillers are clearly apparent, but they have also been compared to bands such as Rage Against the Machine and the Beastie Boys for their attitude and grit. 

With summer festivals and international touring to be announced this spring, 2018 is set to be a huge year for THE PEARL HARTS.
