The Dears / February 2017 UK Tour

 
By on Thursday, 23rd February 2017 at 9:00 am
 

Montreal husband and wife duo The Dears will be touring the England and Wales this weekend and into early next week, playing their first UK shows in 6 years. The four UK live dates are in support of the pair’s latest album release ‘Times Infinity Volume One’, out now on Dangerbird Records. The album is part of a two-volume series, the second half of which is titled ‘Times Infinity Volume Two’ and due for release later this year.

Frontman Murray Lightburn says of the 2-year long project, “Putting these two records together was like solving a puzzle: Volume One was about finding the edge pieces while Volume Two was about the middle pieces. It was very difficult to wrap one’s head around at first, but by the end of production, it just became easier and easier. It’s a metaphor for life, and our life’s story.”

You can watch The Dears’ brand new video for album track ‘To Hold and Have’ just below the tour date listing. Tickets for the following shows are available now.

Friday 2?4th February 2017 – Cardiff Globe
Saturday 25th February 2017 – Bristol Fleece

To Kill a King / May 2017 London Shows

 
By on Saturday, 18th February 2017 at 9:00 am
 

Five-piece rock band To Kill a King have just announced a series of three live shows in London this May, just ahead of festival season. They also recently unveiled a dramatic new track titled ‘The Problem Of Evil’, which is set to appear on their upcoming third LP, due out later this year. You can check out the promo video for ‘The Problem of Evil’, starring Ruby Bentall, at the bottom of this page. Keyboard player Ben Jackson spoke of the newly announced shows in the context of recording the band’s forthcoming album:

For the last year we’ve been locked in small windowless rooms with nothing but each other for company. So as you can imagine we are super excited to announce these May shows. It’s been too long since we played in London, the venues are all nice intimate rooms with great sound and playing three dates means that we can do three different setlists. We’ll be unleashing our new tunes as well as playing the old favourites and we can’t fucking wait.

The first show of To Kill a King’s “London tour” will take place at Soho’s Borderline, which is currently closed for refurbishment but scheduled to reopen next month. Hackney’s Oslo will host the second show of the sequence, and the final show will be held at Omeara, a new central London venue opened late last year by Mumford and Sons‘ Ben Lovett.

Tickets for the following gigs are available now. TGTF’s past coverage of To Kill a King, including a review of their 2015 self-titled album, is right back this way.

Thursday 11th May 2017 – London Borderline
Friday 12th May 2017 – London Oslo
Saturday 13th May 2017 – London Omeara
