Poet, songwriter and dedicated touring artist, to many, Sean McGowan is back this autumn with a new EP and Irish and UK tour dates.
Sean McGowan is making his return this autumn with the announcement of his upcoming EP, Curate Calm, Create Chaos, as well as a full slate of Irish and UK tour dates. The EP will be released in seven weeks on 1st November.
A punk, poet, and pacifist all at once, McGowan's latest collection arrives as an eclectic extension of himself. Stepping momentarily away from the frenetic indie-punk that defined his debut album Son of The Smith, Sean’s latest release instead delivers an altogether more tender and introspective sound.
“Curate Calm, Create Chaos was born from a particularly turbulent time in my life," says McGowan. "A string of events knocked me for Six. I identified five of the causes and used them as the foundations for songs."
The artist took an introspective approach to writing the five tracks: ‘I’m OK’, ‘Heart Breaker’, ‘Silk’, ‘Money’, and ‘Queen of The West’.
"I always try to write honestly and personally," he admits. "I feel like the only way someone could relate or engage with my music is if it's 100% the truth. CCCC is about being self aware enough to accept things aren't right and trying your hardest to fix ‘em."
In support of the new release, Sean will be hitting the road for a series of UK & Irish gigs throughout the autumn. Supporting label-mates Brand New Friend of Xtra Mile Recordings on their upcoming Irish Tour this September, McGowan will also be taking in headline dates of his own throughout November and December.
