Drenge Line Up Spring UK Dates To Accompany New Album 'Strange Creatures'

Monday, 29 October 2018 Written by Huw Baines

Drenge have announced a UK tour.

The brothers Loveless will hit the road next spring in support of their third LP 'Strange Creatures', which is out on February 22, with dates planned in Glasgow, Newcastle, Manchester, Cambridge, London, Portsmouth, Bristol and Birmingham. Tickets are on sale at 9am on November 2.

Discussing the new album, which follows their recent 'Autonomy' EP, they said:

"It comes after months of chiselling away, ripping themes and ideas apart, sewing them back together, stepping away and coming back with fresh ears. Sometimes, a song appears fully formed and ready to go, and sometimes, a song just needs time to ferment. Fine tuning small details, nipping between songs, picking out small things and accentuating them until they take over or become something else entirely. The result is the most considered record we have ever made.

"It’s a nocturnal record. A psychological horror movie on wax. Warped hallucinations from mundane observations as you move through it. Is that a school or a skyscraper on fire in the distance? Or maybe it’s just the ski village? 

"You drive nearer, past roadside diners jammed with dancing teenagers, through Uncanny Valley, past the most unhygienic nightclub in the world. The stereo sounds like its going to fall apart at any moment. The car judders to a halt and all you can hear is the sound of the sea."
