Stornoway / February and March 2017 UK Tour

 
By on Thursday, 27th October 2016 at 9:00 am
 

A bird is three things:
Feathers, flight and song,
And feathers are the least of these.
– Marjorie Allen Seiffert, “The Shining Bird”

On Tuesday, Oxford folk-pop quartet Stornoway made this surprise announcement that they will disband early next year, so that band members Brian Briggs, Jon Ouin, and Rob and Oli Steadman might pursue other individual interests. The news is quite sad for us here at TGTF, where Stornoway have been long-time favourites, but the announcement comes with a happy twist for the band’s UK fans, in the form of a Farewell Tour scheduled for next February and March.

Support for the following live dates will be played by Canadian indie rock band Brasstronaut, and tickets will be available beginning Friday the 28th of October at 10 AM. Just below the tour date listing, you’ll find Stornoway’s final promo video, a rare track from their ‘Bonxie’ recording sessions titled ‘Night Drive’.

TGTF’s extensive archive of coverage on Stornoway is collected 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.

James Vincent McMorrow / October 2016 UK/Irish Tour

 
By on Monday, 15th August 2016 at 9:00 am
 

Irish singer/songwriter James Vincent McMorrow will be releasing his next album ‘We Move’, his third, on the 2nd of September. McMorrow has indicated that the new release will be significantly different than its predecessors, including 2014’s acclaimed ‘Post Tropical’. He explained in this beautifully heartfelt Facebook post in July that ‘We Move’ is a reflection of his grappling with self-confidence and being honest in his music. To have a taste of the new material, he has shared the promo video for lead single ‘Rising Water’, which you can watch at the bottom of this post.

McMorrow will be following the album release with tour dates in Ireland and the UK in October. Tickets are on sale now. Grab ‘We Move’ for your very own at the start of September on Believe Recordings. For more on his music and performances on TGTF, go here.
