Teleman / October and November 2016 UK Tour

 
By on Monday, 23rd May 2016 at 9:00 am
 

Glory Hallejujah! No pun intended: London’s Teleman, led by frontman Tommy Sanders, have announced a massive new winter UK tour for October and November 2016. All the dates are listed below, and tickets are available now.

The band have also released a promo video for what I consider one of their latest album’s strongest offerings. ‘Brilliant Sanity’ was released back in April on Moshi Moshi Records (read my review here) and ‘Glory Hallejujah’, not to be confused with or compared to the Leonard Cohen tearjerker, now has its own promo video. Directed by the band’s own keyboardist Jonny Sanders, there’s running around, daylight and nighttime, water and rocky outcrops, indoor shots of cathedrals and outdoor shots of…well…cathedrals. And some live shots from touring. It’s all here in the promo for ‘Glory Hallejujah’, which you can watch below. PS: hey Tom, I hope you’re happy and smiling somewhere. For more on Teleman on TGTF, head here.
