Tour in support of singer-guitarist's forthcoming album
Arcade Fire‘s Will Butler has announced a US tour in 2015 in support of his forthcoming debut solo album, ‘Policy’. Dates include a performance at South By Southwest festival, as well as one at New York City’s Baby’s All Right venue, where he’s played before.
‘Policy’ is due for release on March 16th via Merge Records. It was recorded at Electric Lady Studios in New York and features Arcade Fire’s Jeremy Gara on drums. Last month, Butler teased the record’s release with a trailer featuring music from the record. A press release accompanying news of the album also compared the music to Violent Femmes, The Breeders, The Modern Lovers, Bob Dylan, Smokey Robinson, The Magnetic Fields, Ghostface Killah and John Lennon.
Earlier this year Butler was nominated for an Oscar for his soundtrack to the Spike Jonze film Her. The guitarist also scored a documentary about a Barack Obama impersonator living in New York. Watch him perform original material at Brooklyn venue Baby’s All Right below.
