The Lost Brothers / January and February 2018 UK/Irish Tour

 
By on Thursday, 2nd November 2017 at 9:00 am
 

Irish folk duo The Lost Brothers have announced details of their forthcoming new album ‘Halfway Towards a Healing’, due out on the 26th of January next year. Mark McCausland and Oisin Leech recorded this latest LP in Tucson, Arizona, and its first teaser track has the distinct feel of the American Old West about it, with stark instrumentation, distantly reverberant vocals and a faintly Spanish-tinged rhythm in the guitar line. In case you missed it, our own editor Mary has written a full review of that first single, ‘Echoes in the Wind’, right back here.

Following the release of ‘Halfway Towards a Healing’, The Lost Brothers will embark on a tour of the UK and Ireland, including stops in London, Dublin and Belfast. Prior to their early 2018 dates, McCausland and Leech will play a handful of warm up shows in Navan and Omagh in mid-December. They have also announced a single American date, in New York on the 12th of March 2018. You can find a full listing of The Lost Brothers’ upcoming live shows on their official Facebook.
