Villagers June North-East tour dates

Villagers have announced a run of northeast North American dates in June in support of their acclaimed sophomore full-length, {Awayland}, which arrived in stores last month on Domino Records. Songwriter Conor J. O’Brien visited the U.S. release week, appearing on Fuse News, performing live on KEXP’s Morning Show with John Richards, and for an intimate Brooklyn performance at the Manhattan Inn, presented by BrooklynVegan and WFUV.

{Awayland}’s lead single, “Nothing Arrived” has received significant airplay across the continent, and was featured as XPN’s “My Morning Download”, April 9, while opening number, “My Lighthouse”, was KCRW’s “Today’s Top Tune”.The album cut, “The Waves,” has likewise been garnering attention, including Pitchfork who said, “‘The Waves’ is proof that Villagers are invested in becoming something more dangerous than they were on Jackal,” and the song was also featured on NPR’s All Songs Considered (min. 10).
