The Orielles Announce New Album 'Disco Volador' And Spring UK Tour

Monday, 21 October 2019 Written by Laura Johnson

The Orielles will tour the UK early next year.

The Manchester-based indie band have lined up shows in Newcastle, Glasgow, Stoke, Norwich, Brighton, Bristol, Manchester, Birmingham and London, where they'll play two nights at the Electric Ballroom, between February 25 and March 6. Tickets go on sale at 10am on October 23.

Alongside the tour news, the quartet have announced their new album, 'Disco Volador'. The follow-up to their 2018 debut LP 'Silver Dollar Moment' will arrive on February 28.

Head below to hear the record's first single, Come Down On Jupiter, a dynamic indie-rock offering. Discussing it, bassist and singer Esmé Dee Hand Halford said:

"Come Down On Jupiter is as much a song as it is a narrative that soundtracks a space flight, right through from the ominous introductory sounds of the grand piano to the Lizzie Mercier Descloux -esque ‘thrift shop cowboys’ group chants towards the end, which diffuse the tension of the wig out preceding it."

About the album, she added:

“Its literal interpretation from Spanish means flying disc but everyone experiences things differently. Disco Volador could be a frisbee, a UFO, an alien nightclub or how you feel when you fly; what happens to your body physically or that euphoric buzz from a great party. But it is an album of escape; if I went to space, I might not come back.”
