Field Music announce a 2018 tour and Getintothis’ Ryan Craig has all the details.
Field Music, helmed by brothers Peter and David Brewis, have recently announced a series of UK shows for 2018.
The dates include a night at Liverpool’s own Arts Club and ultimately ending in London’s Barbican, of which there will be an inclusion of strings, horns, woodwind and assorted percussion provided by the Open Here Orchestra.
Over thirteen years and (nearly) six albums, Field Music have managed to carve a niche where all of these sounds can find a place – a place where pop music can be as voracious as it wants to be.
Field Music will be touring as a seven piece with core live players Kev Dosdale on guitar, Andrew Lowther on bass, Liz Corney with vocals and keys, plus Damo Waters on percussion and finally Sarah Hayes on flute and keyboards.
The tour will likely consist of their soon-to-be sixth studio album, which is due to drop in early 2018.
