Low To Tour The UK In November 2013

Low are set to conclude a busy year of worldwide performances with a string of dates across the UK in November. In addition to a set at ATP festival, a notable date is a special performance in Liverpool's stunning Anglican Cathedral. Dates across the country follow, with the band set to play songs from this year's acclaimed Sub Pop LP, The Invisible Way.

Low have been busy of late: they covered Rihanna's hit 'Stay' for the Rock For Kids charity, a fantastic organisation that provides music and education to under privileged kids in Chicago. The studio version of the song, also a current live favourite, is available to buy on iTunes with all proceeds going to the charity.

Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker also lent their talents to Trentem>ller's stirring composition 'The Dream', and the band's 27 minute rendition of 'Do You Know How To Waltz' at the Rock The Garden festival earned them much praise for their confrontational, daring performance.

2013 has been a momentous year for Low, with the Duluth band marking their twentieth year as a band with the release of their tenth album The Invisible Way. Issued on Sub Pop in March and produced by Wilco's Jeff Tweedy, it found Low's majestic melancholy in full bloom yet distinguishes itself with its starker, unadorned soundscapes, layered harmonies with drummer/vocalist extraordinaire Mimi Parker singing lead on more of the songs.

The album tackles large issues ("the songs are about intimacy, the drug war, the class war, plain old war war, archaeology and love," says Sparhawk) in a confrontational manner that plays a stunning counterpoint to the sublime hush of the music.                                                            

How is the new album different from previous Low records? Sparhawk points to the fact "Mimi sings lead on five of the eleven songs (she usually only does one or two, despite being a fan favourite)."  Plus "Piano, lots of piano... and an acoustic guitar."
