Public Service Broadcasting / October 2017 UK Tour

 
By on Wednesday, 19th April 2017 at 8:00 am
 

In case you’ve been living under a rock, a few weeks ago Public Service Broadcasting announced details on their third album, ‘Every Valley’, which will chronicle the coal mining industry in South Wales. The first taster from the album, ‘Progress’, is a definite nod to Kraftwerk instrumentally, and it features the vocals of Camera Obscura‘s Traceyanne Campbell, only the second PSB track to feature a guest vocalist. (Watch the video for the song featured as a past Video of the Moment here.) The new album will also feature James Dean Bradfield, of course famous from being a member of the iconic Welsh rock band Manic Street Preachers.

Naturally, to promote the new record and to ease J. Willgoose Esq. and co.’s itchy feet, our favourite history nerds have announced a massive UK tour for October 2017. Fittingly, their journey begins on the 13th of October in Cardiff. Tickets go on general sale this Friday, the 21st of April, at 9 AM; fans on their mailing list will have early access to tickets starting today at 9 AM.To read more on TGTF on Public Service Broadcasting, go here.

Keane frontman and now a solo artist in his own right Tom Chaplin has announced a new UK and Irish tour for next May. He’ll be supporting his debut solo album ‘The Wave’, which was released earlier this month on Island Records in the UK. (The American release will follow in January 2017.) You can read my review of the long player here. Chaplin kindly provided more insight into his new record and the events that led him to write its songs in an interview with me that posted recently on TGTF (read part 1 and part 2 through those links).

Chaplin is currently out on a sold out tour of Britain, playing in intimate venues across the country. These new dates in Blighty and Eire will go on sale this Thursday, the 27th of October, at 9 AM. The last tour’s tickets went in a blink of an eye, so if you’re keen on getting tickets to this, be ready on the phone and computer on Thursday morning.
