Neil Hannon and co. will spend two nights in Dublin on their Irish tour.
Derry-born Hannon and his band will be touring through Cork, Limerick, Derry, Belfast and Dublin this December, following the release of Foreverland. This new album is The Divine Comedy’s eleventh studio album. In an interview last fall with Olaf Tyaransen, Hannon talked about the album, saying, “It’s not all about love! There’s songs about history and imperialism and the Foreign Legion. There’s all sorts. It’s basically the last six or seven years of my life – potted form – with layers of intrigue, to throw you guys off the scent. Not that it works. There’s so many reasons for not just saying things. Apart from anything else, when you’re working on songs, it’s less dull for the writer if you weave other stories into your own.”
The orchestral pop band will be joined by Irish pop band, Pugwash who also have chatted with Olaf in the past. Check out their interview here.
