With the release of his hugely-anticipated third album Grey Tickles, Black Pressure just over a week away on Friday 9th October, and already the subject of rave reviews in the monthlies, John Grant has today announced news of an extensive UK and Ireland tour for early 2016.

Grey Tickles, Black Pressure, recorded in Dallas with producer John Congleton (St Vincent, Franz Ferdinand), refines and entwines the two principal strands of Grant’s musical DNA, namely the sumptuous tempered ballad and the taut, fizzing electronic pop song. There are newer musical accomplishments across its panoply of towering sound, like the title track’s new steely demeanour, while the ominous drama of “Black Blizzard” echoes both John Carpenter and Bernard ‘Black Devil Disco Club’ Fevre’s beautiful and icy synthscapes. The contagious, gleeful “You And Him” marries buzzing rock with a squelchy electronic undertow, while orchestral drama swathes the bad-dreamy “Global Warming” and the album’s gorgeously aching widescreen finale “Geraldine”. John recently released a NSFW (or at least not for the squeamish!) album trailer featuring the title track which can be viewed.
