The 4AD-signed band’s second album ‘Stumpwork’ lands next month.

Dry Cleaning have shared new single ‘Gary Ashby’ and detailed an extensive world tour.

The former DIY cover stars are set to release second album ‘Stumpwork’ on 21st October via 4AD, which has been previewed so far by the singles ‘Don’t Press Me’ and ‘Anna Calls From The Arctic’.

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.

Since their acclaimed debut album, Dry Cleaning have been on a giddy upwards trajectory. While the world around the London quartet has changed, ‘Stumpwork’ is as singularly idiosyncratic as ever.

It’s unlikely to win over the naysayers, but, for those already enamoured with their kitchen sink Dadaism, ‘Stumpwork’ is yet more magic from Dry Cleaning.
