Peggy Sue return to the UK in the autumn with a date pencilled in for Parr Street Studios, Getintothis’ Luke Halls looks back at the band’s recent years and brings you the 2019 tour dates.
London-via-Brighton two-piece Peggy Sue make their return to the gig circuit in autumn 2019.
Whilst being very much an on-and-off band for the last few years (there’s been a short run of shows, a new single once in a blue moon), the self-proclaimed post-folk duo are back and ready to kick it up a gear.
January 2017 was the last glimpse of new material from Rosa Slade and Katy Young, in the form of breezy single Slow Fade. The announcement of a 2019 tour suggests new material is likely to be in the pipeline.
The group achieved critical acclaim with 2014’s LP Choir of Echoes, walking away with 8/10s from NME, Louder Than War and Clash – the latter applauding its exploration of ‘absolute defiance‘ of religious belief systems.
Peggy Sue returns with a live band made up of Landshapes drummer Dan Blackett, as well as Grip Tight bassist Benjamin Gregory. Such diverse musicality will bring the band’s choral-driven pieces to life in new ways beyond past releases.
Peggy Sue will play Liverpool’s Parr Street Studios on October 16 with a slew of UK dates in tow. Support is yet to be announced, but considering the band’s live history as a support act, it can only be complimentary.
