Villagers / October 2018 UK Tour

 
By on Tuesday, 19th June 2018 at 9:00 am
 

Irishman Conor J. O’Brien, better known under his recording name Villagers, will be going on tour in the UK in the autumn. In the midst of the UK dates, he will also perform at Dublin’s Metropolis Festival on the 27th of October. A massive tour filling up most of his November will follow it. The UK tour will commence just a few weeks after the release of his fourth studio album ‘The Art of Pretending to Swim’, which is scheduled for release on the 21st of September on Domino Records. Enjoy album track ‘A Trick of the Light’ in its promo video form at the end of this post.

Presale tickets and album go on sale tomorrow, Wednesday, the 20th of June, at 9 AM. The general sale begins on Friday, the 22nd, at 9 AM. Given the immense destruction from the fire that took place at the Glasgow School of Art last Friday, it’s unlikely the originally scheduled gig on the 18th of October will take place there. Stay tuned to Villagers’ official channels for more information.
