Tour dates go on sale tomorrow.

Former Snow Patrol guitarist, Nathan Connolly, has announced news of a UK and Ireland tour. The five dates in mid-June include London, Glasgow and a hometown show in Belfast’s Limelight 2. The tour follows the news of Connolly’s debut solo album, ‘The Strange Order Of Things’, set for release tomorrow. Debut single ‘Fires‘ featuring Biffy Clyro’s Simon Neil, was released last month and reviewed this week by Andrew Frolish. The new work features guest appearances from Irish artist Ailbhe Reddy, as well as long-time collaborators Dave and Herb Magee (LaFaro, Little Matador, Arvo Party), Stephen Leacock (General Fiasco) and Gavin Fox (Turn, Idlewild, Little Matador).

Connolly describes his solo album as “trying to understand, make sense and work through events that have led to who I am now: heartache, regret, emotional cost and fatherhood“.

Tour Dates:

13/06 – Glasgow – King Tut’s
134/06 June Manchester – Deaf Institute
15/06 – London – Colours
17/06 – Dublin – Whelan’s
18/06 – Belfast – Limelight 2

You can order the album on vinyl from Belfast-based record label Third Bar and get tickets for the tour via the venues.
