Tickets are on sale today, Friday 27th April, for The War on Drugs and Courtney Barnett collaborator, Kurt Vile and his band The Violators’ tour. The tour includes a date at Concorde 2, Brighton, 5th November, which is also the first date of the tour!
Last year’s collaboration with Barnett via the Lotta Sea Lice helped to raise the profile of the guitarist, and this is his first European venture for two years.
Kurt Vile recently joined Yo La Tengo onstage to help them cover The Cure, when the band performed in his hometown of Philadelphia. They sung ‘Friday I’m In Love’ which Yo La Tengo originally recorded for their 2015 covers album Stuff Like That There.
Although no new songs have been announced, expectations are high that Vile will be releasing new material this year.
