Calva Louise Announce Spring Tour Supporting 'Rhinoceros' Debut Album

Wednesday, 07 November 2018 Written by Jon Stickler

Calva Louise have announced a UK tour supporting the release of their upcoming album. 

One part Venezuelan, one part Māori and another part English, the London grunge newcomers have lined up stops in Newcastle, Glasgow, Leeds, Manchester, London, Liverpool, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff and Brighton during March. Tickets go on sale at 10am on November 9.

The tour shares its name with the trio's upcoming debut album 'Rhinoceros', which was produced by Margo Broom and is set to land on February 1 via Modern Sky Records. Discussing it, the band said:

"Our debut album is called 'Rhinoceros', in reference to a particular aspect of the work of Eugene Ionesco. In the lyrics of these 10 songs we show our perception as young people, partly foreigners, who try to fit in and belong to something and somewhere in this globalized world. However, we have realised that our greatest motivation is the challenge of adventure, of penetrating into the unknown, and being authentic allows us to feel free to follow our own path, without ceasing to belong to this world, which is the reality."

The band recently opened for Hunter and the Bear across the UK and support the Blinders at the Garage in North London on November 7. In the meantime, stream I Heard A Cry, the second track to be lifted from the album, below.

Technical And Topical: Black Peaks' Guitarist Joe Gosney Discusses 'All That Divides'
Fri 12 Oct 2018
Music critics are often guilty of presenting rock's history as linear. Progressive rock emerged out of pop music and psychedelia in the late 1960s but was ultimately killed off by punk in the late 1970s, so the narrative goes. Punk, with its raw sound and DIY ethic, was also a better vehicle for voicing social and political issues than prog, which was considered more escapist and lyrically concerned with “high culture”.
Out Of The Shade: Doyle Bramhall II Steps Into The Limelight
Thu 11 Oct 2018
There won’t be many musicians with an address book as impressive as Doyle Bramhall II’s. From Elton John and Roger Waters to Sheryl Crow and Alain Toussaint, not to mention his position as Eric Clapton’s right-hand man for nearly two decades, the Texan born singer, songwriter, guitarist and producer has often been the go-to collaborator for some of the greatest names in the business. Such a role inevitably meant putting his own career on hold, but with the release of ‘Shades’ – his second solo album in two years - he’s finally taking centre stage.

But do Chris Farren and Jeff Rosenstock know that Chris Farren and Jeff Rosenstock are friends? “Hey,” Farren says from the stage at Bristol’s Exchange. “If you’re excited for Jeff Rosenstock, let me hear you say...‘CHRIS FARREN!’” When Rosenstock’s guitar packs up mid-set, his attempts to borrow Farren’s are met with silence until a member of his band suggests Tweeting him. Yeah, that’d probably do it, Jeff nods.
Boygenius: The Badass Supergroup We've All Been Waiting For

Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus were pictured together, draped moodily on a sofa. Looking suspiciously like the sleeve image from Crosby, Stills and Nash’s self-titled bow, the word ‘Boygenius’ ran below them, as well as that all-important stamp of approval from Matador Records. Speculation bubbled. Rumours were whispered.
