Albert Hammond Jr has had a busy year since the release of his newest album, Francis Trouble, this past March. He’s toured the world, including festival stealing performances at Roskilde, Splendour in the Grass, and Fuji Rock and sold out shows in Los Angeles, New York, London, Paris, and beyond. Additionally Hammond and his band made late night appearances performing on both Conan and The Late Late Show With James Corden. On top of that, his current single “Far Away Truths” is having incredible success at radio, entering the top 25 on the Alternative Album charts and climbing.
Today, Hammond Jr is announcing even more shows to take him to the end of 2018, beginning at this year’s Voodoo Music + Arts Experience in New Orleans on October 26th, and going on to play headlining dates in Austin, Cincinnati and Louisville, plus a stop at Tropicalia Fest in Long Beach, CA on November 3rd. He’ll join Elle King, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Smashing Pumpkins, Death Cab for Cutie and more on dates across the US. See all tour dates below.
Albert Hammond Jr’s fourth solo album Francis Trouble explores a deeply personal topic – the stillborn death of his twin brother, Francis, and the lingering effects that event has had in his life and music. The album was called “dark, yet lovely,” by Paste Magazine and Pitchfork called it “some of the brightest and scrappiest music he’s ever made.” Visit http://alberthammondjr.com for more information and click here for a download of the album.
