Devendra Banhart Announces European Tour Dates June & July 2013

'Banhart, born in Texas and raised in Venezuela and California, makes music that interprets so many styles that it belongs in a universe of its own.' - New Yorker

To coincide with the release of his new album Mala, Devendra Banhart will tour Europe this summer, including three UK dates in Brighton (The Old Market, June 28), Manchester (The Ritz, July 17) and London (Barbican, July 18).  The tour also includes dates in France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Portugal and Holland.  Tickets go on sale on March 5.

Fri June 28 The Old Market, Brighton
Wed July 17 The Ritz, Manchester
Thu July 18 Barbican, London

Devendra Banhart releases his Nonesuch debut, Mala, on March 11.  The singer/songwriter co-produced the record with his longtime bandmate, guitarist Noah Georgeson.  The album also includes the singles 'F_r Hildegard von Bingen' and 'Never Seen Such Good Things'.  Describing it as a 'career-best', Q wrote, 'This is a beautiful album that counterpoints Banhart's boundless and surreal imagination against a newly-discovered depth and sincerity.'

Mala, Banhart's eighth studio album, was recorded in his then-home in Los Angeles.  [He now resides in New York City.]  Banhart's previous release, 2009's What Will We Be, received critical acclaim, with Rolling Stone calling it 'The best he's ever made'.  The Los Angeles Times said the record 'Found him making comfortable, laid-back folk that didn't sound like a compromise - more like an artist growing into his own.'
