Acclaimed late 80s guitar band The House Of Love play the Arches on Friday 5th April.
One of the defining British guitar bands of the late 80s, The House Of Love return to the Arches on the back of their fifth album, She Paints Words In Red.
Influenced by The Jesus and Mary Chain and The Velvet Underground, the band enjoyed five intense years of cult indie success, spawning singles such as Shine On, Christine and I Don’t Know Why I Love You. Their neo-psychedelic sound and lead singer/guitarist Guy Chadwick’s songwriting skills saw them recognised as one of the great Creation Records bands.
After splitting in 1993, they reformed ten years later, releasing Days Run Away in 2005. Their latest studio album She Paints Words in Red will be released this spring.

Legendary international acts, cult festivals and the most exciting new bands collide at one of the city’s most eclectic live venues.
It’s perhaps natural that, as one of the nation’s most unusual live music venues, our programme spans rock, pop, indie, electronica, soul, jazz, country, metal, folk, and the many sub-genres inbetween. The unique atmosphere and space of the building means it’s often used for anything from intimate acoustic gigs to stage-diving, sweaty rammies and slick, spectacular international concerts.
Supporting the best examples of the known and the not-so-known, the Arches stage is host to everything from the latest stars of leftfield pop, such as Grimes and Chvrches, to alternative indie rock acts such as Peace and Yeasayer, prog and rock heroes such as The Fall, Swans and Dinosaur Jnr, and cutting edge electronic talent, from Rustie to James Blake.
We also regularly plays host to international legends – from Martha Reeves to Ben E. King to Jane Birkin – and provide the perfect multi-room setting for various festivals, from Celtic Connections to the Glasgow Jazz Festival. In 2012, the hallowed arches played hosted to the UK-wide Africa Express tour, featuring Damon Albarn, Baaba Maal and a trainload of world music stars, and in 2013, the building was transformed into a sonic Cineplex for our own co-curated cult event the Glasgow Music and Film Festival, featuring live film scores and AV sets from Jeff Mills, Dieter Moebius and Raime.
“A classical gig in the vaults of Scotland’s dance mecca might sound an odd prospect, but the Arches proved the perfect setting”
