Kate Tempest announces North American tour dates
Kate Tempest has just announced 2017 North American tour dates, her first since releasing 2016's excellent Let Them Eat Chaos. Her tour wraps up in NYC at Le Poisson Rouge on April 13. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday, January 27 at 10 AM. All dates are listed below.
Let Them Eat Chaos was one of our favorite LPs of last year:
Kate Tempest’s second album plays like a table read of a screenplay for an Altman-esque anthology that visits the only seven residents of a particular London block who all happen to still be awake at 4:18 AM. Tempest, dropping perfect little details, sets the scene for each of them: some desperate, some drunk, all a little lost. A master storyteller with seriously impressive flow, Tempest draws you into the lives of the characters, finding the humanity in all of them, and eventually tying them together with a thunderstorm. Collaborator/producer Dan Carey matches terrific backing to Tempest’s rhymes, for what is one of the more moving works of the year.
You can stream Let Them Eat Chaos below. Kate's last show in NYC was one of my favorites of 2015, so if she's playing near, you don't miss her.
