TRUE WIDOW KICK OFF EUROPEAN TOUR
TRUE WIDOW will return to the UK next week to play shows with Kurt Vile - plus their own headlining show on December 12th.
Following a successful run of European dates back in 2011, TRUE WIDOW have returned to mainland Europe in support of Kurt Vile, and tonight kick off the tour with a show in Utrecht, Netherlands. The tour hits the UK next week, starting with Shepherd's Bush before the band play their own headline set the following night at Birthdays in Dalston, where support will come from The Death Letter, Thought Forms and Broken DC. The tour will then continue throughout the UK before finishing up here in Brighton on December 17th, then back to mainland Europe.
TRUE WIDOW commented: "It's been a couple of years now since we have been over here - we have been looking forward to coming back ever since. We are especially excited about London; we had such a good time the last time."
TRUE WIDOW will be playing tracks from their latest album, Circumambulation, which was released on Relapse Records in July this year. The album of hypnotic, heavy-but-melodic shoegaze was recorded at The Echo Lab in Argyle, Texas with the band reuniting with producer Matt Pence (Yuck, Jay Farrar).
At the time of recording, singer/guitar player DH Phillips commented: “I’ve always considered us a simple band but these songs seem even more boiled down, I’d say the pace is a little different as well. Things are a bit more upbeat.”
That trademark TRUE WIDOW sound will be translating into the live arena for the shows throughout Europe over the next two weeks.
