UK post-punk band Dry Cleaning have announced their biggest Irish headline shows to date. They will play two shows in February 2023, the first at Vicar Street in Dublin on the 14th and the other at Mandela Hall in Belfast on the 15th.
Ramping up to release their sophomore album Stumpwork, Dry Cleaning have released third single 'Gary Ashby'. The song is “a lament about a pet tortoise, escaped as a result of family chaos,” explains the band. “We wrote it in December 2020, one of the first new songs after the New Long Leg session.” They've already released two singles from Stumpwork, 'Don't Press Me' and 'Anna Calls From The Arctic'.
Band members Nick Buxton, Tom Dowse, Lewis Maynard and Florence Shaw returned to Rockfield Studios with producer John Parish to record Stumpwork after the success of their debut New Long Leg.
The new album was made in the aftermath of the death of two very important people to the band. “It’s of course devastating to lose close family members but their legacy in Dry Cleaning is wholly positive,” says Dowse. “The moments in the songs which are upbeat and joyful made me think of them both the most.”
To support the release of Stumpwork, the band is heading out on a worldwide tour, including these monumental Irish dates.
Tickets €25.90 go on sale Wednesday 14 September at 10am.
