Pre-order debut album Bright Green Field before 26th April to gain x2 tickets to the ‘Fieldworks’ tour
Album out 7th May via Warp Records
Squid announce ‘Fieldworks’, a socially distanced UK tour of work-in-progress new music which presents a unique opportunity for fans to witness Squid’s creative process first-hand. Squid have always flourished when fleshing out new material in front of fans, feeding on their energy to create something transcendental. It takes a fearlessly forward looking band to take this unexpected turn and play exclusively new ideas.
Fans who pre-order the album from the Squid store, Bleep or Bandcamp before the 26th April will get the opportunity to experience Squid at their creative best as they test out new ideas and collaborate with surprise guests along the way. Tickets will be limited to x2 per purchase.
The ‘Fieldworks’ tour is a unique opportunity for fans to experience something different in some beautiful and unusual settings before the band set out on their July headline UK tour where fans will be able to hear ‘Bright Green Field’ live for the first time.
Squid on the ‘Fieldworks’ tour: “With all this time rooted in one place we’ve been hard at work writing new music together. We thought that this little tour of places, off the beaten track, would be a great opportunity to show you all some new tunes and some REALLY new tunes. We can’t wait to play some places that aren’t on the traditional touring circuit and see all your faces.”
Full tour dates, and details on how to get tickets, can be seen HERE.
Bright Green Field features field recordings of ringing church bells, tooting bees, microphones swinging from the ceiling orbiting a room of guitar amps, a distorted choir of 30 voices as well as a horn and string ensemble featuring the likes of, Emma-Jean Thackray and Lewis Evans from Black Country, New Road. However, for all the innovative recording techniques, evolutionary leaps, lyrical themes, ideas and narratives that underpin the album, it’s also a joyous and emphatic record. One, that marries the uncertainties of the world with a curious sense of exploration, as it endlessly twists and turns down unpredictable avenues.
