Black Country, New Road Reveal new North American Live Dates

Black Country, New Road have announced their return to North America for a run of headline shows in August & September 2023. Following up two sold-out headline New York shows and a run of dates alongside black midi in 2022, the tour kicks off in Vancouver on August 25th, with stops in Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Denver, Chicago, Detroit, Toronto, Washington and more, before rounding things off at New York’s Knockdown Centre on September 21st.

Ahead of this, the band will make an array of festival appearances across the world including a performance at c6 Fest In Brazil, their Glastonbury Festival debut on the West Holts stage, four different sets across various Primavera Sound events in Spain, as well as further European festivals. They are also set to play two consecutive headline shows at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire in October.

The tour announcement follows the the recent unveiling of their critically acclaimed album “Live at Bush Hall“. Comprising 9 brand new tracks taken from their three sold out back-to-back shows at Bush Hall in December 2022, the album — which was released released digitally and as part of a unique live film earlier this year — is also set for it’s physical release on April 28th (in stores on May 26 in North America)

Fresh from the success of “Ants From Up There” and with a full touring schedule ahead of them in 2023, remaining members Lewis Evans, May Kershaw, Georgia Ellery, Luke Mark, Tyler Hyde and Charlie Wayne, now a six-piece, decided to write an entire new set of material to perform. Choosing to lose the idea of a front person entirely, the band instead now share vocal duties with Tyler taking the lead on a number of tracks including “Up Song”, which celebrates the friendship and success of the band with the lyrics “Look at what we did together, BC,NR friends forever.” Elsewhere, May leads on vocals for “The Boy”, as well as “Turbines/Pigs”, an instant fan-favourite as well as one the band’s most vulnerable tracks to date. Whereas Lewis sings on “Across The Pond Friend” and “The Wrong Trousers”. This move has seen the band’s sound continue to shift, allowing for further influences and diversity to permeate their songwriting.
