Having just completed a comprehensive North American tour, Titus Andronicus is gearing up to bring their acclaimed, revelatory “acoustic” show to the United Kingdom and Ireland. The newly announced “acoustic” dates, beginning August the 30th in Glasgow and concluding September the 9th in Dublin, will go on sale to the general public this Friday, April the 19th.
As was the case on the North American dates, the “acoustic” tour of the UK / IRL will feature singer-songwriter Patrick Stickles performing in a duo configuration with pianist Alex Molini, offering the European debuts of fresh cuts from their polarizing 2018 release A Productive Cough (available now from Merge Records), as well as casting a new light on evergreen favorites from across the Titus Andronicus catalogue, creating an intimacy between artist and audience previously unexperienced by fans of the band on the Eastern side of the Atlantic.
“The British have good taste,” said Stickles, “after all, these are the people who sent the [Rolling] Stones’ ‘Little Red Rooster’ to the top of the pops. I don’t doubt they will have a sufficiently sophisticated palette to appreciate our new show.” He then added, with tears welling in his eyes, “of course, it is always a great joy to perform in Ireland, the land of my ancestors, and we will do our best to meet the high bar they set long ago for balladry both heartfelt and defiant.”
