The 1975 / January 2019 UK Tour

 
By on Wednesday, 12th September 2018 at 9:00 am
 

Arguably Manchester’s biggest pop band of the moment The 1975 will be releasing their third album in November. You can get your mitts on ‘A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships’ from Dirty Hit Records starting on the 30th of November. Naturally, the band will be touring the UK in support of their new record, but they’ve decided to wait until the start of next year to begin the UK leg of their campaign. Support for these shows will come from their buddies Pale Waves and no rome. Tickets to the following tour dates will go on sale next Friday, the 21st of September at 9 AM. Check out the video for ‘TOOTIMETOOTIMETOOTIME’, starring a platinum blond Matty Healy no less, at the bottom of this post. We’ve written a fair bit on The 1975 here on TGTT, including this Bands to Watch piece back in 2012 that I’m pretty proud of, and you can read through all of our articles on the band through here.

Charles Watson / May and June 2018 UK Tour

 
By on Monday, 12th February 2018 at 9:00 am
 

Newly established as a solo artist, Charles Watson (also known here at TGTF as part of indie pop duo Slow Club) has announced a list of UK headline shows to follow the upcoming release of his debut LP ‘Now That I’m a River’. The album is due out on the 18th of May via Moshi Moshi. Watson’s headline tour will begin the following evening at Ramsgate Music Hall and extend through the first part of June.

Along with the tour announcement, Watson has also unveiled a new promo video for the surprisingly groovy album track ‘Abandoned Buick’.  Directed by Jacob Wyatt and Alistair Baines and produced by RND Media, the promo is simple in design and has the same lo-fi vibe as the song itself. Watson, for his part, is equally low-key in his commentary. “Although the new video for ‘Abandoned Buick’ may at first appear to be just some clever camera work, a clapped-out Mercedes and deceptive shots of my manager wearing exactly the same jacket as me,” he quips, “it is, in fact, evidence that I have successfully achieved my life long goal of having a touring clone”.

You can watch the video for ‘Abandoned Buick’ just below the tour date listing. Tickets for the following shows are available now. And ICYMI, our review of ‘No Fanfare’, the first single from ‘Now That I’m a River’, is right back this way.
