Paul Thomas Saunders UK Tour Announced For April 2014

Paul Thomas Saunders is pleased to announce details of a UK headline tour this Spring. The run of ten shows coincides with the release of his debut album, Beautiful Desolation, released on the 7th April, through Atlantic Records.
 
The dates commence on album release day at The Hare and Hounds in Birmingham, and run through to a performance at this year's Stockton Calling on the 19th April. The run includes a headline show at London's Lexington on the 17th April.
 
Tickets for all shows are £6.00 (London £8.00), and are on sale today through the ticket links below.
 
As previously announced, Paul will play a handful of live dates next month with The Head and the Heart in the UK and Ireland.
 
Beautiful Desolation will be released on the 7th April through Atlantic Records. Written and recorded in Leeds, it was produced solely by Paul and his bandmate Max Prior. It was mixed by Craig Silvey (The Horrors' Still Life, Arcade Fire's The Suburbs).

Paul, a former member of Lichfield Cathedral school choir and Leeds College of Music, recorded the album in a hotel gatehouse on the outskirts of Leeds, before moving down to Hove where he currently lives.
 
He had to say about the record:
 
"The album is called Beautiful Desolation, it's a phrase I appropriated from Buzz Aldrin upon his first few steps on the Moon (thanks Buzz). I decided it was the perfect title for my first LP about a year ago, I could hear how I wanted the album to sound by repeating that phrase like a mantra.

All the colours, emotions and idiosyncrasies of the human condition. It's a record I hope will help you with any demons you have, that's why I wrote it..."
 
Informed by the Greek electronic composer Vangelis and Jean-Claude Vannier, Beautiful Desolation is a record of vast space and atmosphere, driven by this unique artist's soaring vocal.
