Lydia Loveless announces European tour in May09-12-2014
For the first time since the release of her critically acclaimed release "Somewhere Else", Lydia Loveless will tour across Europe in May 2015. With a full band, Loveless will perform concerts in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Denmark, Italy, Spain, Netherlands and France. Full European tour dates, details and ticket links are listed below.
As singer-guitarist Lydia Loveless's music has become more refined and confidently entwined with the rumbling flex of her road band, there's been an interesting side effect — she's become, at least on record, more of a follow-your-lust, heart-splattered mess of recklessness and regret. Doing lines, kissing exes, delivering blowjob orders, identifying with Verlaine offing Rimbaud, being inspired by hatefuck royalty Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor — it's all here. But Loveless's songwriting has a wry sophistication and her voice has developed a wondrous, ornery sweep that's starting to rival Neko Case.
On "Somewhere Else" Loveless is less concerned with chasing approval – she scrapped an entire album’s worth of material before writing this set – and more focused on fighting personal battles of longing and heartbreak, and the aesthetic that comes along with them. She might not steal your car after the relationship goes south, but you can be damn sure she’ll still take a baseball bat to the windows on her way down the street. She might even smile about it.
