Thousand Yard Stare were originally active between 1989-1993, releasing a slew of EPs that reached the top of the Independent Charts, before signing to Polydor Records and releasing two LPs. They toured extensively across the world, including with James in the UK, Jesus & Mary Chain in Europe and Soup Dragons in the US, as well as coveted festival appearances at the likes of Glastonbury and Reading
From nowhere, the band reformed in 2015 for a triumphant and rapturous one-off show in London, reviving a passion that had lain dormant for over two decades. The band continued their sojourn, gaining plaudits and a growing new audience for their energetic and inclusive live performances, with further headline tours, appearances at Shiiine On Weekender, Rockaway Beach, Indie Daze, PennFest and Gigantic, an annual London residency and tour supports with the likes of House Of Love.
Unlike many of their revivalist ilk, TYS have continued to create and release new material, including two EPs and their first studio LP in 23 years - The Panglossian Momentum - in 2020, described as a “triumphant return” in the media, and gaining support from BBC 6 Music.
The band are currently releasing a run of singles, with a second new studio LP due shortly.
