Very proud to present one of only 3 UK headline shows announced for 2018 for St. Vincent, live in Leeds, to precede a headline festival appearance at End of the Road.
___________________________________________________

One of the most innovative and enigmatic presences in modern music, St. Vincent a/k/a Annie Clark has confirmed UK headline shows in Edinburgh, Leeds and Cambridge, adding to an itinerary that includes a previously announced festival appearance at End Of The Road Festival on 31 August.

In addition to being one of the most compelling live performers of a generation, St. Vincent has released five albums to critical acclaim, including 2014’s Best Alternative Album Grammy winning St. Vincent and, most recently, last year’s MASSEDUCTION.

As with its predecessors, MASSEDUCTION has earned an ecstatic reception from critics and fans alike. Debuting at #6 in the UK, MASSEDUCTION was named the #1 album of 2017 by the The Guardian, who noted «Annie Clark makes a rock-star power play by embracing thrilling glam traditions while producing something strange, new and unequivocally moving.” Upon it’s release, the album was hailed by Uncut Magazine as „a bravura fusion of dense-art metal/pop and strutting baroque disco,” while Q Magazine opined “Each St. Vincent album has outclassed the one before, and her fifth is no exception.»

The mass seduction of the album’s title is a bold, emotional reckoning, largely themed around power—or as Clark specifies, “All the forces that can swallow you whole.” These include notoriety and beauty, as well as intoxicating distractions such as pills, sex, and sorrow. Richly melodic and vividly produced, MASSEDUCTION marks St. Vincent’s first collaboration with co-producer Jack Antonoff (Taylor Swift ., Lorde, Sia, Fun.). Their work occupies a fertile space between pop and art rock, with narratives that pivot from sentimental to savage. MASSEDUCTION is, most accurately, a mosaic of St. Vincent's own experiences: “You can’t fact-check it, it’s not a diary entry, but if you want to know about my life, listen to this record.”

Described in terms ranging from “breathtakingly audacious” (The Independent) to “divisive” (NME), St. Vincent’s live performances never fail to engage and provoke.
