The band will play gigs in Belfast, Dublin and Cork this autumn, as well as in locations throughout the UK.
Neil Hannon, one of the country’s foremost songwriters, has announced the release of a wonderful new Divine Comedy album Office Politics on June 7. It’s the follow-up to the acclaimed top ten 2016 album Foreverland.
Office Politics is a 16 track tour de force full of inventive, timeless music peopled with a typically irreverent cast of characters.
“It has synthesizers. And songs about synthesizers,” Neil says. “But don’t panic. It also has guitars, orchestras, accordions, and songs about love and greed.” But ‘Office Politics’ central characters are the machines. Or ‘Infernal Machines’ as one track rages.
The Divine Comedy will play the following UK and Ireland headline tour dates. Tickets on sale from 9.00am on Friday 12th April. Ticket links can be found at www.thedivinecomedy.com
