English art rock band Everything Everything has announced a UK tour in support of their upcoming seventh studio album, Mountainhead. The tour will begin on March 26, 2024, at the Galvanizers Yard SWG3 in Glasgow and will conclude on April 6, 2024, at the O2 Academy Bristol.
A Change in Style?
Through Mountainhead, the band aims to explore ideas about money and society falling apart using a futuristic approach. They describe their album as being about ‘another world where society builds a massive mountain’. In this world, people make the hole they live in deeper to make the mountain bigger. The whole society revolves around making this mountain, and there’s a dominant mountain religion.
To announce this concept, they’ve released the first song from the album called Cold Reactor. The song is a captivating blend of art rock and electronic music that delves into the themes of isolation, technology, and the human condition. The song’s instrumentation is both driving and ethereal, with pulsating synth lines, a steady drumbeat, and soaring guitar riffs creating a soundscape that reflects the protagonist’s emotional turmoil.
Cold Reactor is a powerful and thought-provoking track that resonates with the modern-day human experience of navigating the complexities of technology and its impact on our emotional well-being. It serves as a reminder of the importance of human connection and the dangers of becoming too reliant on technology to the detriment of our emotional lives.
Everything Everything’s hometown shows are sure to be one of the highlights of their 2024 tour. The band will be playing in their hometown, Manchester, at the New Century Hall on March 29th and 30th. This is a special treat for their fans in the city. Manchester has always been a supportive place for the band, and they have always felt a strong connection to the city.
The band will be playing songs from their entire back catalogue, as well as some new tracks from their upcoming album. Hopefully, they will play some of their most popular songs, such as No Reptiles, Cough Cough, and Night of the Long Knives. The band will also be joined by special guests Black Country, New Road on all dates.
Fans aren’t just thinking about getting tickets; they’re also planning ahead to make the most of the night.
