Releasing their first album in six years, The Coral: Distance Inbetween was acclaimed as a reconnection to the band’s iconic roots. Now, in an amalgamation of music and art, The Coral present their debut exhibition at RedHouse Originals Gallery; documenting the music, artwork and stories behind the album.
Seasoned songwriters, accomplished multi-instrumentalists and producers, the band are also entirely responsible for the artistic vision that has made them such an integral part of guitar music in the early 21st Century. Drummer and co-songwriter Ian Skelly has produced the artwork for the band’s album covers since their debut in 2002 and Distance Inbetween is no different.
With psychedelic Victorian-inspired cut and paste collages presented alongside surreal comic book-style illustrations, Skelly has created a striking visual world for the album to inhabit. And now, for the first time, fans of the band will be invited to step inside.
This one-off exhibition will feature new unseen artwork alongside special edition prints created by Ian Skelly to document the songs and the stories behind the music. Also on display will be original artefacts and ephemera that inspired the creation of the album.
The Coral: Distance Inbetween Exhibition opens to the public for two weeks only from 8th – 22nd December. The band are on tour in the UK from 8th – 17th December.
