The Psychedelic Furs may not have invented rock & roll per se, but their influence since arriving on the
post-punk scorched-earth landscape four decades ago has reverberated and resonated among all those
who cherish the sweet-and-sour spot where rawness and romanticism meet. Born out of the UK rock
scene and led by vocalist and songwriter Richard Butler, and his bass-wielding brother Tim, the Furs
quickly developed as one of the premiere bands at college and alternative radio scoring a multitude of
major hits with "Love My Way," "Pretty In Pink," "Heaven," "The Ghost In You," and “Heartbreak Beat”
in all releasing eight studio albums, spawning several compilations, a boxed set, a live concert DVD and
inspiring one of the most iconic motion picture soundtracks of all time. Their latest release “Made Of
Rain” became the Furs’ second highest charting UK Album ever and was prominently featured in the end
of year “Best Albums” roundup in a multitude of publications worldwide. The Furs especially thrive live
in concert having headlined the U.K.’s famed Glastonbury Festival, performing at sold out gigs at the
California’s Hollywood Bowl and continuing to tour quite regularly around the globe.
The Psychedelic Furs touring lineup remains Richard Butler (vocals); Tim Butler (bass); Rich Good
(guitar); Mars Williams (saxophone); Amanda Kramer (keyboards) and Zachary Alford (drums).
