Ben Montague announces new single and UK tour
LOVE LIKE STARS
JULY 9th 2012
Ben Montague releases his epic new single Love Like Stars on July 9th through Nusic Sounds/EMI.
Love Like Stars is a joyous, widescreen pop-rock song that captures that glorious moment when you can’t think of anyone else. The single, which is written by Ben Montague, Jez Ashurst and Kim Richie showcases Ben’s sweet, soulful vocals.
If the name Ben Montague sounds familiar, that would be because you heard his debut single ‘Haunted’ which became a major radio hit two years ago. At the time Ben didn’t have a record deal or an album to his name. Fast forward to 2012 and Ben, with a label behind him, is ready to launch his debut album ‘Tales Of Flying and Falling.’
Recorded at Rockfield with producer Dave Eringa (Manic Street Preachers, Idlewild, Kylie) ‘Tales Of Flying And Falling’ is a set of songs that make sense together; that document a relationship that was right, went wrong, then came right again. It’s an album that will make his fans fall for him all over again. “This was always my dream – to make an album with one producer, in one studio,” says Ben. “To take my time and make sure every song sounded as good as it could. Working with Dave was amazing. He’s a rock guy; I write pop songs. We bonded over old-school desks and old-school mics and a love of authentic, epic music.”
Ben, who was recently the main support for The Wanted on their UK Arena Tour, will be heading out on his own this June. He will be hitting the road to showcase songs from his forthcoming album. The full list of dates are below. Tickets can be bought from www.benmontague.co.uk.
