The Verve [originally Verve] are an English alternative rock band formed in Wigan, Greater Manchester in 1989 at Winstanley Sixth Form College, by vocalist Richard Ashcroft, guitarist Nick McCabe, bassist Simon Jones, and drummer Peter Salisbury. Simon Tong later became a member. Beginning with a psychedelic sound indebted to space rock and shoegazing, by the mid-1990s the band had released several EPs and two acclaimed records. They also endured name and lineup changes, breakups, health problems, drug abuse and various lawsuits. The band's commercial breakthrough was the album 'Urban Hymns' and its single 'Bitter Sweet Symphony', which became a massive worldwide hit. Soon after this commercial peak, the band broke up, citing creative struggles between band members. By then, The Verve had become one of the most influential British alternative rock acts of the decade. The band split in April 1999 due to inner conflicts which led to McCabe's departure. The band's original line-up reunited in June 2007. The band embarked on a tour in late 2007 and released Forth in August 2008.
'Forth' is the fourth album by English alternative rock band The Verve and was released internationally on August 25th 2008, and a day later in North America. The album is the band's first release since reforming in 2007 and touring at various festivals in 2008. It is also the band's first album of new material since 'Urban Hymns' was released in 1997, excluding two unreleased tracks on the singles compilation album 'This Is Music: The Singles 92-98'. The album's first single, 'Love Is Noise', received its first airplay by BBC Radio 1 on June 23th 2008.
