If gallavanting across the world headlining massive stages with Gorillaz wasn’t enough for Damon Albarn’s 2018 - and believe us, it wasn’t - the group he fronts with The Clash’s Paul Simonon, Afrobeat legend Tony Allen and The Verve’s Simon Tong are releasing a second album this month.
‘Merrie Land’ is released next week - 16th November - and shifts its focus to the UK post-Brexit.
The group have announced a series of live dates, beginning in Tynemouth on 26th November, and taking in nights in Glasgow, London, Blackpool and others.
The dates are:
26 Tynemouth CIU Club
27 Cullercoats Crescent Club
28 Cullercoats Crescent Club
1 Blackpool North Pier
2 Glasgow SWG3
4 London Hackney Arts Centre
5 London Hackney Arts Centre
6 London Hackney Arts Centre
Listen to the newly-unveiled track, ‘Gun to the Head’.
