Big news! Legendary guitarist Albert Hammond Jr. of The Strokes is set for a tour of the UK.
Promoting his fourth solo album, ‘Francis Trouble’, released earlier this year, Hammond Jr. will be playing a string of six dates around the UK.
To whet your appetite for the tour, check out the live video for ‘DvsL’, shot in Santa Ana on the American leg of the tour here…
The album is an extremely personal piece from the Strokes icon – detailing the tragic death of his stillborn twin brother, Francis and the effects that this event has had on his life and music.
Hammond Jr. says the music shouldn’t be read seriously by fans, but ‘tarted up, made into a character, a parody of itself. The music is the mask the message wears and I, the performer, am the message.”
Be sure to catch Albert Hammond Jr. in the UK for a unique performance from one of the most pivotal musicians of the past 20 years. He has avoided playing any mega-sized venues, to ensure it is a tour to remember!
