These New Puritans Announce Special Shows

They’ll play their album ‘Hidden’ with an orchestra.

Earlier this year These New Puritans released their second album ‘Hidden’, which, at various points, features a 15-piece brass and woodwind ensemble; multiple prepared pianos, 6’ Japanese Taiko drums, and the use of Foley techniques to mimic the sounds of heads being crushed and swords being drawn.

At a series of exclusive dates in October, November and December, the band will present ‘Hidden Live’, the only chance fans will get to hear this music as it was originally recorded, accompanied by the full ensemble of brass, woodwind and giant drums; the orchestra will be conducted by André de Ridder (Gorillaz, Monkey).

The dates so far (there are more to come) are:

23 The Barbican, London

20 Crossing Border Festival, Den Hague, Holland

18 Centre Pompidou, Grande Salle de Concert, Paris

You can also catch the band this summer playing Lovebox, Latitude, 1234 Festival, Field Day, Kendal Calling, Standon Calling and Offset.
