The Isle Of Wight based pop sensation Lauran Hibberd releases her debut album 'Garageband Superstar' this August and to celebrate the release, Lauran is performing a string of in-store shows which will be followed by a headline tour in September.
"‘Garageband Superstar’ is dad rock for your daughters”, Hibberd reveals. “If you don't get the feeling of relief similar to the one of undoing your jeans button after a big meal, I'd feel crushed. It's a nod to all of my favourite 90's sub genres, and the soundtrack to your next favourite trash TV show that no one else gets but you. There's tracks about breaking your leg, falling off rollercoasters, taking off your pants, competing with Red Dead Redemption, boys in the supermarket, writing essays on Facebook walls, people who take leg days seriously, and the enigma of being a superstar. All pretty relatable stuff right?"
'Garageband Superstar' includes the lead track ‘Still Running’ (feat. DJ Lethal) and the infectious follow-up ‘Step Mum’. The album is produced by Larry Hibbitt (Nothing but Thieves, Sea Girls) and is perhaps the most anticipated debut album release of the summer,
Having supported chart-toppers The Snuts and Stand Atlantic, as well as a sold-out 2021 UK headline tour, Lauran Hibberd hits the road again, this autumn to coincide with the release of the album.
