One of the undisputed highlights of the UK’s festival season is back from 5 – 15 July 2018.
Celebrating the release of their self-titled debut album earlier this year, Cigarettes After Sex have announced a special headline show at London’s O2 Academy Brixton on the 24 May 2018.
The band is the brainchild of Brooklyn based Greg Gonzalez, who followed up their widely acclaimed early EPs, including single Nothing’s Gonna Hurt You Baby, with their sprawling atmospheric debut in June.
“This is like the novel or feature-length version of Cigarettes,” Greg explained of the album. “I wanted it to feel like a complete work, where some of the imagery repeats – like it’s all in the same world. It’s very much a fulfilment of the feelings in the short works.”
Songs such as Apocalypse and Each Time You Fall In Love showcase the both light and dense sound Cigarettes After Sex have honed.
Fans will also be likely to hear earlier singles such as Affection.
Greg Gonzalez is joined by bassist Randy Miller, drummer Jacob Tomsky and keyboardist Tubbs.
Cigarettes After Sex will be headlining London’s O2 Academy Brixton on the 24 May 2018.
Tickets are on sale at 9:00 on the 10th November 2017 through Ticketmaster.co.uk.
