Elbow announce new ‘Giants Of All Sizes’ tour – including multiple residencies

Elbow are keeping it intimate next spring

Elbow have announced a new tour in support of next month’s new album ‘Giants Of All Sizes’.

The tour, running in March and April, sees the band play residencies at relatively intimate venues throughout the country.

Tickets for the tour go on sale at 9am next Thursday (September 26). The full dates are below.

‘Giants Of All Sizes’ is released on October 11. It’s been preceded by the singles ‘Dexter & Sinister’ and ‘Empires’.

Speaking to NME when the album was announced, singer Guy Garvey said of the album: “A lot about this record is different. We started recording in a new city, in Hamburg, we changed the way we worked and we all decided from the off to let the songs take the lead, without compromising the vision of each tune.”

Garvey continued: “At times, it’s a bleak record, but it has a huge, if bruised, heart. It was a pleasure to make and we are all immensely proud of it.”

The new album follows 2017’s ‘Little Fictions’, which was Elbow’s second No 1 album, following 2014’s ‘The Take Off And Landing Of Everything.’ As with both those albums, ‘Giants Of All Sizes’ is produced by the band’s keyboardist, Craig Potter.

Following the departure of drummer Richard Jupp before ‘Little Fictions’, the new album features session drummer Alex Reeves, who also played on ‘Little Fictions’.
Elbow are ambassadors for National Album Day on October 12, alongside Mark Ronson and Mahalia.
