St. Vincent announces Edinburgh show

Art-rock band St. Vincent have revealed that they will be bringing the MASSEDUCTION tour to Edinburgh this year.

This is after having no previous Scottish dates on the first UK leg of the tour last year.

MASSEDUCTION is the sixth album from the Texas based rock band, with previous releases including five solo records, and a collaboration with David Byrne of Talking Heads fame. The album was released in December last year, and was subsequently named The Guardian’s top album of 2017.

Annie Clark (lead singer of St. Vincent) is renowned for her live presence which has been paired with inventive visuals on previous shows. Unlike preceding album tours however, MASSEDUCTION has seen her remove the live band off stage and present herself as a solo act instead.

St. Vincent will play three dates in August this year. One at the Edinburgh Playhouse on the 26th, Leeds O2 Academy on the 28th and finishing at the Corn Exchange in Cambridge on the 29th. Pre-sale has opened for the Leeds and Cambridge dates, and more details can be found on St. Vincent’s Twitter. No word yet on when tickets for the Edinburgh date will go on sale.
