The Divine Comedy Announce Autumn Tour And New Double Album 'Office Politics'

Thursday, 04 April 2019 Written by Jon Stickler

The Divine Comedy will tour the UK and Ireland this autumn.

The band will head out in October with stops planned in Dublin, Belfast, Cork, Glasgow, Birmingham, Oxford, Bristol, Leeds, Manchester, and London, where they'll play Hammersmith's Eventim Apollo. Tickets go on general sale at 9am on April 12.

The dates will follow the release of their upcoming 16-track double album, 'Office Politics', which is set to arrive on June 7, following up 2016's 'Foreverland'. 

The band have also shared the record's artwork, viewable above, as well as the tracklist and its cheerful, percussion heavy lead single, Queuejumper. Vocalist Neil Hannon revealed the details via a memo on the band's website

"It has synthesizers. And songs about synthesizers. But don't panic. It also has guitars, orchestras, accordions, and songs about love and greed. I do try to make normal records. But it always seems to wander off into odd territories."

'Office Politics' tracklist:

1. Queuejumper
2. Office Politics
3. Norman And Norma
4. Absolutely Obsolete
5. Infernal Machines
6. You'll Never Work In This Town Again
7. Psychological Evaluation
