Northern Irish art-rock singer/songwriter Joshua Burnside has recently announced a lengthy run of tour dates in England for the end of this year, as well as a pair of dates at home in Belfast to bookend the English dates. This tour is in preparation for Burnside’s upcoming EP release ‘Wear Bluebells In Your Hat If You’re Goin’ That Way’, which is a “reconstituted and embellished” deluxe version of his 2013 EP ‘If You’re Goin’ That Way’. The new EP is due out on the 11th of January 2019 via Quiet Arch. You can take a listen to its blues-tinged lead single ‘Black Dog Sin’ just below the tour date listing.

On 3rd December, Burnside will officially begin his University ‘Coffee House’ Tour, which includes, as you might expect, stops at University venues around England.

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.
