The Staves have announced a run of live shows for this Autumn in support of their glorious new album Good Woman.
The tour kicks off in Swansea on 23rd September, taking in Cambridge, Folkestone, Oxford, Birmingham, Liverpool, Glasgow, Leeds, Edinburgh, Newcastle, Nottingham, Manchester, Brighton, London’s O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on 11th October and finishes up in Bristol on the 12th October.
The band had to say: “We’re so excited and thankful to be announcing a UK tour today. It’s been a long old year and we can’t WAIT to play music in front of people again! We hope to see all your lovely faces there.”
Previously announced dates at Hackney Church and Clapham Grand (6th and 23rd April respectively) have been postponed – rescheduled dates to follow soon.
Good Woman was written and recorded in a time of severe turmoil for the band, seeing the ending of relationships, the death of their beloved mother and the birth of Emily’s first child. Produced by John Congleton, the album stands as a testament to their strength and that of other women, to sisters, mothers and daughters. To love, loss and change. To trying to be a good woman.
