We are extremely excited to announce that GUIDED BY VOICES will be returning to the UK for the first time in over 15 years in June.
Their long anticipated return to British shores will see the band play 5th June at Village Underground.
Tickets go on-sale at 10am GMT this Friday, 11th January.
The announcement follow’s the band’s announcement for Primavera Sound Festival 2019 in Barcelona (May 30).
This will be the legendary band’s first return to Spain since 1997. GBV has played just one show in Europe (2011) in the past 15 years.
The band also released a brand new track, “The Rally Boys“, a short slice of perfect pop and the lead single from GBV’s forthcoming epic double album, ‘Zeppelin Over China‘, in stores on February 1st.
‘Zeppelin Over China’ is a major and majestic work in the GBV canon, spotlighting the scope and genius of Pollard’s songwriting. With 32 songs in 75 minutes, the massive Zeppelin reaches lofty heights on its musical journey. Pollard continues to deliver endless invention and emotional wallop in 2 and 3-minute guitar rock gems.
Pollard has assembled his greatest supporting cast ever — Doug Gillard (guitar), Kevin March (drums), Mark Shue (bass), Bobby Bare Jr. (guitar) and Travis Harrison (engineer) — and this line-up’s virtuosic talents spur him to his most ambitious work yet, a grand album of emotional resonance and narrative drama.
After well-deserved acclaim for the mind-boggling milestone of Pollard’s 100 career albums, ‘Zeppelin Over China’ is a wonderful entry point for new listeners to experience Guided By Voices for the first time. Not resting on his laurels, Pollard’s tireless tenacity pays off with spectacular results.
