Guillemots announce major UK tour this November
New single ‘I Don’t Feel Amazing Now’ out October 23rd
Following the release of their critically acclaimed third album ‘Walk the River’ in April, Guillemots are taking their captivating live show on a sixteen date tour of the UK this November, finishing against the appropriately dramatic backdrop of London’s KOKO on the 17th.
A series of secret gigs in London earlier this year firmly cemented the band’s status as one of the most spellbinding live acts around, making this tour one not to be missed.
A highlight of the live shows is guaranteed to be the ethereal new single ‘I Don’t Feel Amazing Now’ released through Geffen on 23rd October. Produced by Dave Kosten (Bat for Lashes, Everything Everything), this bleak but beautiful song of loss and longing must be one of the most moving things recorded by Guillemots to date.
Following the Mercury Prize nominated ‘Through the Windowpane’ (2006), the top ten ‘Red’ (2008) and last year’s gold selling solo debut ‘Fly Yellow Moon’ by frontman Fyfe Dangerfield, the band recorded ‘Walk the River’ at Bryn Derwen Studios, a converted country manor in the mountains of North Wales.
Tickets for the tour go on sale on Friday 5th August 2011.
