TUNE Richard Dawson - Ogre
Richard Dawson has announced his new album Peasant, and from it the first single ‘Ogre’, both released on Weird World / Domino Records on June 2nd. Dawson’s fourth album - following the 4 track Tyneside-Trout-Mask-through a-Vic and Bob-filter of Nothing Important - Peasant’s eleven tracks sustain a momentum worthy of the lyrics’ urgent subject matter. Dawson describes the themes of these songs as “Families struggling, families being broken up by circumstance, and - how do you keep it together? In the face of all of these horrors that life, or some system of life, is throwing at you?” Dawson appears at Supersonic and Green Man festivals, and for the first time embarks on a full UK tour with a live band throughout June: Summerhall, Edinburgh (8th), Howard Assembly Room, Leeds (9th), Star & Shadow, Newcastle (10th), Art School, Glasgow (11th), St John on Bethnal Green, London (22nd) Fiddlers, Bristol (23rd), South St. Arts, Reading (24th), Old Hove Market, Brighton & Hove (25th).
