Tickets for the November 24 gig go on sale on Friday, March 13.
Ghostpoet will perform in The Button Factory on November 24, following the release of his upcoming album I Grow Tired But Dare Not Fall Asleep, due May 1.
The two-time Mercury Prize nominee's new record is a dystopian snapshot of the universal unease and anxiety we feel as we enter into this new decade, an uncertain future distilled across 10 tracks.
'Concrete Pony', the first single off the upcoming record, is a bluesy, gritty entry point into the concept. Ghostpoet, aka Obara Ejimiwe, said: "It’s a snapshot of where we’re at as a society I feel, we seem to have everything and nothing at all. Infinite possibilities and choices galore but we seem set in stone, frozen in place, oblivious to the storm clouds in the distance…”
I Grow Tired But Dare Not Fall Asleep incorporates myriad sounds and styles, but is anchored by the more alt-rock sonics presented across his last two records. It features guest vocals from an eclectic mix of artists; Art School Girlfriend, Skinny Girl Diet’s Delilah Holiday, SaraSara and Katie Dove Dixon.
Tickets are €20 and go on sale at 10am on Friday, March 13.
