English all-sister folk trio The Staves have announced a run of Irish live shows in support of their new album Good Woman, out now on Atlantic Records.
The Watford outfit, featuring Emily, Jessica and Camilla Staveley-Taylor, are set to perform in Limerick, Dublin, Galway and Belfast this October, with tickets going on sale this coming Friday.
“We’re so excited and thankful to be announcing an Ireland tour today," The Staves said in a press release.
"It’s been a long old year and we can't WAIT to play music in front of people again! We hope to see all your lovely faces there.”
Six years after the release of their last studio album, The Staves have returned with an outlook informed by the passage of time, the sudden loss of their mother, the birth of Emily’s first child, and the breakdown of relationships. The result is Good Woman: a work of slow-burning brilliance and impressive emotional depth.
The charismatic group made their debut in 2012 with Dead & Born & Grown, followed by 2015’s Justin Vernon-produced If I Was.
Good Woman was written and recorded in a time of severe turmoil for the band. Produced by John Congleton, the album stands as a testament to their strength and that of other women, to sisters, mothers and daughters. To love, loss and change. To try to be a good woman.
"In fact, the album’s greatest strength lies in this recurring sense of release, and an acceptance of the fact that, although the sadness never truly fades, life goes on," Hot Press' Lucy O'Toole wrote in her review of the LP.
"To The Staves, becoming a Good Woman means letting go – and learning to live with pain, without ever fully giving in to it."
