Gaz Coombes announces UK and festival dates (2015)

Story by Jack Foley

GAZ Coombes will play a series of dates in the spring alongside already announced festival gigs.

Kicking off in April, the dates include Field Day in London on Sunday, June 7 alongside Ride, Patti Smith and Jane Weaver.

The tour announcement follows the reelease of his recent solo album Matador and coincides with the release of new single Detroit on April 6, 2015.

A tale of a late night existential crisis set to glorious widescreen Kraut-heavy power pop, Detroit is one of many stand-out tracks from the hugely acclaimed Matador.

A limited edition 10” of Detroit will also be released on Record Store Day (April 18) backed with a live version of the track recorded at the 229 Club.

Of the accompanying video, Gaz says: “It’s a beautifully shot video by Peter Franklyn Banks; I rather enjoyed the concept of having a surreal cameo in my own video… enjoy, folks!”
