The band will then head across the UK performing shows, in Manchester; Glasgow; Nottingham; Portsmouth; Bristol; London; Sheffield, Birmingham, and Liverpool, before concluding in Dublin, on the 27th of February 2020. However, before they hit the UK the band will be performing across Europe.
The band will kick start the European leg of their tour off, in Vienna, on the 24th of January 2020. They will then head to Munich, Prague, Warsaw, Poznan, Copenhagen, Aarhus, Berlin, Munster, Groningen, and Den Haag, before concluding in Brussels, on the 11th of February 2020.
The announcement comes as the band have released the official video for their track, ‘More Is Less’. The video was shot by Sam Taylor in black and white, and depicts a messy (both literally and metaphorical) relationship, which is filled with violence and passion.
The track features on their debut album, ‘When I Have Fears’, which was released to critical acclaim and cemented the band’s position as on of Ireland’s great new upcoming bands. The band is made up of James McGovern, Damien Tuit, Cathal Roper, Gabriel Paschal Blake, and Diarmuid Brennan.
Speaking to DIY, about the album, McGovern, said: “I think the beautiful thing for us is that we’ve got nothing to prove to anyone. That’s how we got away with making something that I believe to be so pure. That record is like a living sentient thing when I listen to it. It’s imperfect and it’s breathing.”
