Car Seat Headrest reveals Liverpool debut gig on UK tour plus re-imagined version of Twin Fantasy album out in February.
Car Seat Headrest are to bring their explosive live show to the UK including their debut Liverpool show at The Invisible Wind Factory on May 19.
The tour accompanies news that Will Toledo’s 2011 Bandcamp album, Twin Fantasy, has been re-recorded and re-imagined and will come out on February 16 on Matador Records.
The Liverpool date, which comes courtesy of Harvest Sun Promotions, is one of only six UK dates as the band also call Bristol, Glasgow, Cambridge and London.
With a seven-piece band in tow (including members of Naked Giants), Car Seat Headrest will tour Australia, Europe and select US West Coast cities in 2018, with a full US tour to be announced at a later date.
Today’s album announcement comes with the release of Nervous Young Inhumans and its accompanying video (below) which follows on from the band’s breakthrough 2016’s Teens of Denial.
On the new album Toledo is stepping into the shoes of his teenage self and walking back to painful places. He revises, gently, the songs loved by so many and offers more forgiveness than fury.
Of Twin Fantasy, Toledo says: “It was never a finished work and it wasn’t until last year that I figured out how to finish it.” He has, now, the benefit of a bigger budget, a full band in fine form, and endless time to tinker.
