Lau’s final show of 2018 is a chance to hear some of the band’s first new music since 2015’s The Bell That Never Rang (Album of The Year – The Herald, The Guardian) alongside favourites from throughout their career.

New album Midnight and Closedown is set for release in February 2019 on Reveal Records, produced by John Parish – famous for his production and collaborations with PJ Harvey, Eels, Sparklehorse and many more.

Lau’s new music was written in Shetland and continues their experimental approach to folk music. With increasingly stripped-back instrumental arrangements and exploratory song forms, the album deals with timely themes of isolation, togetherness and forgiveness. All three members of Lau have been expanding their compositional horizons and they bring that experience back, making for a musical language that builds on their traditional roots but is unlike anything they’ve done before.

Always a hot ticket, best to purchase well in advance.
