SCISSOR Sisters released their fourth studio album ‘Magic Hour’ this week and will visit Belfast’s Waterfront Hall on October 2 in support of it.
The album features collaborations with Pharrell Williams, Diplo, BoysNoize’s Alex Rihda and Azealia Banks as well as Calvin Harris, who has co-produced top 20 single ‘Only The Horses’ along with Jake Shears.
Scissor Sisters formed in New York in 2001. They came to public attention with the release of the Grammy-nominated and chart-topping disco version of Comfortably Numb.
International prominence followed with the success of their debut album Scissor Sisters, which reached number one in the UK where it was the best-selling album of 2004 and spawned five top 20 singles. The band picked up multiple awards, including three Brits.
‘Ta-Dah’ (2006) proved another commercial and critical success and scored them their second consecutive number one album and their first UK number one single ‘I Don’t Feel Like Dancin’.
Displaying a shift towards a more club-oriented sound, their third studio album ‘Night Work’ (2010) charted at number two on the UK Albums Chart, and gave the band their biggest success to date in America.
