Olden Yolk have announced March shows in London, Margate and Bristol, plus European dates.

The New York-based newcomers, led by Shane Butler of Quilt and Caity Shaffer, will play Hy-Brasil Music Club in Bristol and Margate Tom Thumb Theatre before a date at Cafe Oto in London supporting Tony, Caro and John.

The shows will follow the release of their self-tilted debut album, which is out on February 23 via Trouble In Mind. After presenting Takes One To Know One and Vital Sign, the band have unveiled a third song, Cut To The Quick. Speaking about the song and its accompanying video, the band said:

"Cut To The Quick is about reclaiming oneself when the pressures of the outside world seem to close in around you. The video was largely shot in NYC and Austin, Texas; two places that have been homes to us at one time or another. It plays with abstraction, memory, and the simple acts we go through on a daily basis to construct some semblance of identity.

"The bridge of the song references an experience had at the Stonewall Monument in NYC shortly after the heinous shootings that took place at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida in 2016. Stonewall is an historical landmark at the site of the 1969 riots during which the gay liberation movement made headway in the fight for equal rights. At this time in 2016, it became a sort of temple to voice solidarity, mourn, and gather strength to move forward. Being there at that time and seeing so much strength and love expressed openly was an incredibly deep experience. The heart of the song lies in trusting oneself and finding the strength to move forward amidst the vagaries of life."

Mon March 26 2018 - BRISTOL Hy Brasil
