David Byrne & St Vincent Announce UK Dates As Part Of European Tour 2013

David Byrne & St. Vincent have announced details of a long-awaited European tour, their first since releasing their collaborative album, Love This Giant last year. The duo's seventeen-date tour includes three August UK shows as follows:
 
David Byrne & St Vincent - August 2013
 
Tuesday            27th      London Roundhouse
Wednesday       28th      Birmingham Symphony Hall
Thursday           29th      Glasgow Royal Concert Hall
 
Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday 8th March priced at £35 / £40 (London), £32.50
 
Recorded over two years largely at Water Music in Hoboken, NJ, Love This Giant is a collaboration in the truest sense of the word, with Byrne and St. Vincent (aka Annie Clark) co-writing ten of the album's twelve tracks, and each artist penning one song individually. The album centres around an explosive brass band and is propelled by John Congleton's drum programming.
 
"There was no delineating what the roles were," explains Clark of the recording. "It's a collaboration I'm truly proud of." The duo also split lyrical and vocal duties on the record, which despite eschewing a traditional guitar/bass/drums line-up in favour of idiosyncratic horn arrangements, presents itself as infectious and modern hook-laden rock.
