IT may have been a long time coming but local band Dodgy, responsible for some of the best feel-good songs around, are back.
The band, including Nigel Clark from Redditch, Mathew Priest from Bromsgrove and Andy Miller, will be performing at Bromsgrove’s Artrix.
After almost a decade out of the spotlight the band, who have sold more than a million records and had a string of hits including Staying Out For The Summer and Good Enough, also have new material.
As well as being a homecoming show for the band, they will also be previewing tracks from new album Stand Upright In A Cool Place, recorded in a workshop in Malvern before being mixed in Texas.
Asked about the time lapse, singer Nigel said: “What’s the rush?
“We’ve taken our time to make sure this album is better than our last one… and that was brilliant.
“The fans deserve it and we believe that the songs are good enough to win us a whole new audience.”
The band decided to re-group after meeting at funeral four years ago and say the new album is their best work to date.
People will be able to judge for themselves when the band plays at the venue on Thursday, January 12.
Tickets costing £15 are available from artrix.co.uk or the box office on 01527 577330.
