MARC Almond has announced a full UK tour in April 2015 to follow the release of his much awaited new record – entitled The Velvet Trail – on March 2.

Almond, who released a 4 track EP in 2014 with collaborations including Jarvis Cocker (Pulp) and Carl Barat (The Libertines, Dirty Pretty Things), will perform a mix of old and new material.

The tour will end on May 1 at London’s Shepherds Bush Empire, where Marc already hosted sold out shows for his 50th and 55th birthday.

The eclectic artist, last year’s recipient of the Ivor Novello Inspiration Award, is currently touring with Jools Holland, following the 2013’s triumph of his award winning Ten Plagues song cycle performances and subsequent album release.
