Band set to showcase material from forthcoming new album
The Dandy Warhols have announced a short UK tour for April.
The Portland, Oregon band, who are currently working on their seventh studio album, will play dates in Glasgow, Manchester and London to showcase their new material.
In May last year, the band’s frontman Courtney Taylor-Taylor revealed that the LP had a working title of ‘This Machine’ and promised that the album would see them “get serious about the rock”. The record will be the follow-up to their 2008 album ‘Earth To The Dandy Warhols’.
In October last year, Taylor-Taylor hit out at the Conservatives for using their music at the Tory party conference. After learning that their track ‘Bohemian Like You’ had been played during a speech by Theresa May, he said: “Why don’t these assholes have right-wing bands make them some right-wing music for their right-wing jerkoff politics? Oh, because right-wing people aren’t creative, visionary or any fun to be around.”
Dandy Warhols will play:
Glasgow Garage (April 19)
Manchester Academy (20)
London HMV Forum (21)
