I remember the moment I first heard the opening chords of “The Disconnection” by Carina Round as if it were yesterday. It was the end of 2004, and my old bandmate Seymour had sent me a naughty CD-R copy as a Christmas present. I’d never even heard her name before, but I was blown away. Sometimes albums change you – discovering the existence of Carina’s music was one of those mind altering moments for me (and I quickly bought a proper copy of that album and all subsequent releases!). I was lucky enough to witness some incredible live shows from her in London in the years after, both solo and with her band, and I write, rather fangirlishly, about one of them here. Getting to sing backing vocals for her shows in London and Birmingham in 2011 was a massive treat, as you can imagine, and it’s been wonderful hearing about her exploits on the international stage ever since.
So you can imagine my great delight in announcing that I’ll be supporting Carina on her first UK tour in years this August. She’s taking time out from touring relentlessly with Puscifer and Tears For Fears to promote her beautiful new release “Deranged To Divine”, a retrospective of her four incredible studio albums plus my personal favourite, the beautiful “Things You Should Know” EP.
It means so much to me to be part of her tour, and of course I’d love to see you there. Here’s the full list of dates and ticket links – please share!
