KT Tunstall

Story by Jack Foley

FOLLOWING the top 5 chart success of her third studio album Tiger Suit, KT Tunstall has announced a selection of dates in February and March 2011.

In addition, she is also set to release a second single from the album on December 5 – Fade Like A Shadow, an up-tempo stomper of a track about being haunted by someone from your past.

Largely demo’d in the solar powered home studio she built at her recently acquired country hide away, Tiger Suit is produced by Jim Abbiss, famous for his work with Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian, Adele and Editors amongst others.

The album was recorded in Berlin – in the legendary Hansa Studios, which played host to the recording of seminal output from the likes of David Bowie and U2.

KT also takes to the road again in 2011 armed with her ‘Wee Bastard’ effects pedals and new band of musicians (including newest recruit Charlotte Hatherley – formerly of Ash- on guitar).

They play the following dates (all February and March 2011):

19 – Galway Raddison Hotel
20 – Cork Opera House
21 – Dublin Olympia
23 – Dunfermline Alhambra
24 – Newcastle O2 Academy
25 – Manchester Academy
27 – Leeds O2 Academy
28 – Leamington Spa Assembly Rooms

1 – Colston Hall
3 – Birmingham O2 Academy
4 – Bournemouth O2 Academy
5 – Brighton Dome
7 – Norwich UEA
8 – London HMV Forum

Tickets for the English dates are £20 regional (£22.50 for London) and they go on general sale on Friday, October 15 at 9am.
