FOLLOWING a successful European tour, rising indie stars Amber Run will be kicking off their new autumn tour in Bournemouth.

Following the success of their of their sophomore album, For A Moment, I Was Lost, the four-piece will be back on the road for a series of live appearances starting at the Old Fire Station on September 29.

Lead singer Joe Keogh took some time out of final rehearsals to answer a few questions for The Daily Echo.

He said he was looking forward to getting back on the road and promoting their new acoustic EP.

"We wanted a different challenge from how we normally record and so we decided to make an acoustic EP of two covers and two songs from our last album.

"It was important that we got really great performances without hiding behind the veneer of production. It was fun."

Although the band is now playing at bigger venues, Joe insists it hasn't changed the dynamic of the band.

"Playing any live show is hilarious and playing to smaller crowds in towns we’ve never played before was something that we really wanted to do on this tour.

"We wanted to go and play to people that have never seen us live before - look them in the eyes and welcome them into the fold."

Joe adds: "It’s going to be a lot of fun. I’ve never been to the town or the venue but I’ve heard a lot of really great things. We are excited to be able to meet and play for the people of Bournemouth."
