In support of their debut album New Long Leg, UK outfit Dry Cleaning have announced details of their long-awaited headline tour.
The English post-punk band will perform their biggest headline show in Dublin to date, live at The Button Factory on February 15th, 2022.
Formed in South London in 2018, the band is composed of vocalist Florence Shaw, guitarist Tom Dowse, bassist Lewis Maynard and drummer Nick Buxton.
Dry Cleaning made their television debut on Later...with Jools Holland earlier this month, performing their recent single ‘Scratchcard Lanyard’. The group signed with 4AD last year, propelling their career forward.
Buoyed by the universal acclaim they received for 2019 EPs 'Boundary Road Snacks and Drinks' and 'Sweet Princess', the foursome spent more and more of their lives on tour, refining their craft even further. The intensive time they spent together meant they developed a near-psychic knowledge of how to leave the right amount of space for each other in their songs.
The resulting ambitious album New Long Leg - produced by John Parish - features Shaw’s spoken vocals tightly intertwined with the band’s restless instrumentals. Its lyrics are preoccupied by themes like dissociation, escapism, daydreaming, complicated feelings of love, anger, revenge, anxiety, the kitchen, lethargy, forgetfulness, and survival. Shaw peppers the songs with a thousand tiny details, little witty asides about supermarkets, cupboards, beauty products and body parts add up to sonic landscapes that teem with the strange magic of ordinary life.
Featuring the singles ‘Scratchcard Lanyard’ and ‘Strong Feelings’, New Long Leg will be released on April 2nd digitally and on CD, cassette, standard black vinyl and limited-edition yellow vinyl.
Tickets for Dry Cleaning's Button Factory gig will go on general sale this Friday March 26th at 10am GMT, with a pre-sale beginning on Wednesday, March 24th at 10am GMT.
