Juanita Stein has announced a full UK tour for this November / December. The Howling Bells frontwoman turned solo artist, who has just released her new album ‘Until The Lights Fade’ via Nude Records, follows a summer of festivals including Latitude and Green Man, with a busy touring schedule from now into December. We reviewed the record only last month dear readers.
Stein’s second solo album arrived less than a year after her first, ‘America’, which saw her exploring the iconography and cultural landscapes of a country that had always fascinated her from afar. While the new record is cut from the same musical cloth as its predecessor – the crepuscular twang of bar-room guitars, the keening romanticism of its melodies, the sparseness and simplicity of its arrangements – the album’s ten songs are concerned with thoughts, feelings, stories and characters rooted far closer to home.
Currently on a nine date U.S tour, Juanita Stein will support Villagers on dates in France and The Netherlands next month before returning to the UK for a headline run that includes a show at London’s Courtyard Theatre on 23rd November. The dates run as follows:
Sat 17th Nov – LEEDS, Headrow House
