Following the release of Ásgeir new album and tour announcement, Getintothis’ Jessica Borden has all the details.
Following the release of his album Afterglow, Icelandic singer-songwriter Ásgeir has announced an extensive European tour including a date in Liverpool.
Ásgeir returns with his third album, 5 years after his debut, Dýrð í dauðaþögn, which featured a large portion of lyrics by his father. This father and son collaboration continued into Afterglow, due to Ásgeir’s return to his hometown and as a result their musical relationship continues to blossom.
Afterglow maintains the melodic alternative folk atmosphere which winds itself throughout the tracks, the electronic blend of harmonies allows for Ásgeir’s songs to feel modern and not trapped in a folk idea or tradition.
The Liverpool date comes as only two UK shows (the other in London) and will be hosted at Arts Club on October 17th.
Liverpool-based promoters I Love Live Events, who secured this fantastic show among many others, are running a monthly pass (eight gigs for the price of one) allowing for the discovery of new music along with a chance to see your favourites. So keep an eye out on their Facebook page to catch the monthly pass offer!
