The Proclaimers are returning to the NCH to celebrate the release of their 12th studio album Dentures Out. The new collection is their most political since breakthrough record Sunshine on Leith and sees Manic Street Preachers’ James Dean Bradfield contribute guitar to the track ‘Things As They Are’. Dentures Out is a record of the times, for the times, with Craig and Charlie Reid at their political, observational, satirical and fist-punchingly tuneful best.

Dentures Out is the first release by The Proclaimers since their 2018 album Angry Cyclist, which was recorded at the legendary Rockfield Studios in Wales with producer Dave Eringa (Manic Street Preachers, Roger Daltrey, Kylie Minogue) at the helm. Angry Cyclist was their 8th UK Top 40 album, which debuted in the UK Official Album charts at 17 and at number 3 in the UK Official Independent Album Charts. The Angry Cyclist World Tour began in July 2018 and ended in September 2019, with 111 shows in 14 countries to over 400,0000 people. The tour included their biggest ever tours of Scotland, England, Canada, New Zealand and Australia and notably in June 2019, The Proclaimers opened The Pyramid Stage for their 7th appearance at Glastonbury.

Strikingly individual, twin brothers Craig and Charlie Reid emerged 31 years ago with their debut album This Is The Story and Top 3 single ‘Letter from America’. Since then their enduring appeal across generations has have over the years seen them enjoy huge success across the globe. The Proclaimers' songs are timeless, capturing a gamut of human emotions, written with poignancy, emotional honesty, political fire and wit. Their songs feature at weddings, funerals and everything in-between and there is one song, an early celebration of falling head over heels in love that is known the world over and has become a staggering global anthem. There are many others that have gained great popularity in different parts of the planet and then there is a wide cross section of sublime songs embraced by a multitude that has kept up with The Proclaimers' studio albums, compilation collections and extensive touring over three decades.
