“We are very excited to celebrate our second album ‘Silence Is Easy’ with everyone,— said frontman James Walsh. “It will be great to release tracks from the album, such as “Telling Them” and “White Dove”, from wood, so that they accompany the audience’s favorite “Four To The Floor” and “Silence Is Easy”… We are very grateful to you for this. we took this album into our hearts, and it has stood the test of time.”

Along with the recently announced UK tour dates, Starsailor will also be introducing a host of new material to celebrate the occasion.

This is due to the release of the 20th anniversary edition of the album, including exclusive footage and excerpts from the archives of the band. Session tracks will also be included in the upcoming release, as well as the new documentary “It was Easy to be Silent”, which opens the veil over the episode with Spector.

According to a new press release, Starsailor also has new material in the works and is expected to release new music in 2024.

Back in 2021, Walsh talked about his infamous quarrel with Oasis in 2002. Reflecting on the feud in the NME film “Does Rock ‘n’ Roll Kill Brain Cells?!”, the frontman recalled how he quarreled with Noel Gallagher backstage at T In The. Park Festival.

“It was a crazy time and the only period in our lives when we were in all the tabloids, and it was a fuss over nothing,” he said, explaining why the incident occurred.

“Since then we have been playing concerts with Liam,” he added. “I do not know how Noel feels about this, but we made up with Liam anyway!”

In the same year, Starsailor celebrated two decades since the release of their debut album “Love Is Here”. In commemoration of this event, the band announced the release of an album dedicated to the 20th anniversary, which included previously unreleased covers, rarities and re-recorded tracks. On this occasion they also started a UK tour.
