Handsome Family announce 2018 tour

Everyone’s favourite spooky / weird / incredibly engaging / thoughtful lyrical producing / musical genius Americana band the Handsome Family have announced a series of UK dates for 2018.  This will see them playing a set of larger venues, in keeping with their new stature following the 2015 use of their song Far From Any Road as the theme tune to Season 1 of HBO’s hit TV drama series True Detective, which had the effect of  introducing them to a whole new audience and a whole load of new fans.  In the two years since that song has been streamed over 50 million times and counting.

Which is of course great, and much deserved, but as longer term listeners already knew they  have dozens of great songs, with a cluster of albums each one a gem to be treasured.  So get in fast and get those tickets that are on going sale today.  We’ll see y’all at the hop, if we can find the venues on our maps.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
