As The Divine Comedy announce a new album, Getintothis’ Will Neville looks ahead to a tour that features a special live date in Liverpool.
Eleventh studio album Foreverland is released on September 2, and is supported by a full British and European tour, including a Friday night date in the grand surrounds of St. George’s Hall in Liverpool on October 14.
Best known for quirky chamber pop hits in the late 1990’s, including top ten smash National Express, Neil Hannon and band return with a record he describes as:
“About meeting your soul mate and living happily ever after… and then what comes after happily ever after. Get ready for the most historically inaccurate hit of the summer.”
This will be their first LP since 2010’s Bang Goes The Knighthood, although lovers of Hannon’s literary style of music have satiated themselves in the meantime with two records by the cricket-themed The Duckworth Lewis Method, a joint venture with Thomas Walsh of Pugwash.
The Divine Comedy play St George’s Hall on Friday, October 20, doors 7pm.
