Squeeze is touring in support of Cradle To The Grave.  Released in October, the LP is the first disc of brand-new songs from the band since 1998’s Domino.

“We split in 1998 after the release of Domino,” Glenn Tilbrook said.  “Chris [Difford] and I were not getting on so well, we needed a break and to follow our own paths for a bit.  We slowly but surely came back together as people, and then reformed Squeeze in 2007.  Originally, this was only planned as a short reunion, but things went so well, here we are nine years later.  Four years ago we agreed that if we were to carry on, we really needed to work on new material.”
