The Twilight Sad announce 2019 UK shows and share vintage video for ‘Shooting Dennis Hopper Shooting’

Their biggest headline show to date is on the horizon

The Twilight Sad have announced new UK shows for 2019 – check out the dates below.

The Scottish group released their acclaimed fifth album, ‘IT WON/T BE LIKE THIS ALL THE TIME‘, back in January. In a four-star review, NME described their “11-track exorcism” as “a full-bodied and inescapable mood-piece, and a visceral account of their victory in the fight to exist.”

After airing the new material with a trio of UK gigs in February, the band have now confirmed further shows scheduled for November.

The Twilight Sad will play their biggest headline show yet as they take to the stage at London’s Kentish Town Forum on November 23. The milestone performance will be followed by an appearance at Manchester’s O2 Ritz the next evening.

Tickets go on general sale at 10am this Friday (April 5).

What’s more, a new video from the band accompanied today’s announcement – with the colourful visuals for ‘Shooting Dennis Hopper Shooting’ available to view now. The clip, directed by Cameron Gleave, contains snippets of vintage footage paired with a derelict swimming pool scene.

Ahead of the newly-announced dates, The Twilight Sad are set to at appear at Mad Cool Festival in Spain this July. They share the bill with the likes of The Cure, The National, The 1975, Mogwai and many more.

Meanwhile, the band recently spoke to NME about The Cure’s Robert Smith advising them on their new album. “He really liked it,” said James Graham. “He was pretty involved in sharing his opinion through the writing and mixing of the songs. He was saying, ‘That’s done, that’s great’.”
