21 Jul Willard Grant Conspiracy UK Tour Dates Announced
We’re very much looking forward to welcoming Willard Grant Conspiracy back to the UK in September. It’s been two years since their last visit, touring in support of their 2013 album Ghost Republic – which was fantastically described by The Line Of Best Fit as being “a haunting, remarkable record which grips you like the living dead” and by Mojo as “at times hushed and poetic, at others dizzyingly huge and squalling”. Often pigeonholed as being an Americana band, The Quietus rightly pointed out that WGC in fact “has more in common with the apocalyptic landscape visions of Warren Ellis and Nick Cave, or Ghost Of David-era Damien Jurado”, also stating in a review of the band’s last London show that WGC were certainly deserving of a wider audience. Needless to say, we completely agree.
September’s visit will feature, longtime WGC collaborator, David Michael Curry (also of the Thalia Zedek Band), cellist Jonah Sacks and of course, singer & songwriter, Robert Fisher. Following their string of intimate shows throughout the UK, WGC will continue on to The Netherlands, where they’ll be putting in an appearance at Tilburg’s Incubate Festival.
