Everything Everything to play at Rise BristolPosted on: 07 Aug 2017
The Manchester band have announced plans to play an intimate show at Bristol’s premier record shop Rise on Wednesday 23rd August, to celebrate the release of new album A Fever Dream.
The development of Everything Everything has been atypically typical for a band contrary enough to regularly appear onstage in robes or to use a recorded cough as a unit of percussion.
Having suitably baffled and gulled critics on their unfathomably arch debut Man Alive, Jonathan Higgs and co. refined their idiosyncrasies into a more mature follow-up Arc, before hatching into fully-fledged social commentators on fabulous third Get To Heaven. Underscoring each of these albums is the irreverent sense of humour, the wit razor-sharp as it is self-aware, which makes the four-piece such a fun proposition.
This continues to pervade their new material, plucked from forthcoming album A Fever Dream. This is set to drop on the 18th August on RCA, a date the band are heralding with a supporting mini-tour of the nation’s record shops. Slotting in amid their festival preparations, the boys will take in Manchester, Nottingham and London before arriving in Bristol, where they will play an intimate set at Rise.
Everything Everything’s 45-minute set will draw mainly from their new material, and will get going at 7pm after doors have opened at 6.30pm.
For entry wristbands, you must pre-order A Fever Dream from the Rise website.
