Dry Cleaning have shared new single ‘Gary Ashby’ and detailed an extensive world tour.
The band say that new track ‘Gary Ashby’ is “a lament about a pet tortoise, escaped as a result of family chaos,” adding: “We wrote it in December 2020, one of the first new songs after the New Long Leg session.”
After a US tour that begins next week, Dry Cleaning have announced a huge touring schedule for 2023, which includes a UK and Irish tour in February and March that concludes with the band’s biggest headline gig so far at London’s Brixton Academy.
