El-P To Tour UK
The Quietus , June 25th, 2012 10:29

The righteous Brooklynite will be landing in the UK for five dates in September

The tour, in support of the recently released Cancer 4 Cure, includes appearances in London, Brighton, Birmingham, Bristol and Manchester, as well as across Europe. C4C, El-P’s first proper solo LP since 2007’s I’ll Sleep When You’re Dead, sees the rapper/producer indulging his apocalyptic tendencies as much as ever; we described it as “finding the balance between abject horror and arresting beauty, like he's repeatedly punching you in the face with a fist full of peonies.” You can stream and download the first single from the album, ‘The Full Retard’, here. Full tour dates below.

SEPTEMBER
12th - London, Scala
13th - Brighton, The Haunt
15th - Birmingham, Rainbow Warehouse
16th - Bristol, The Fleece
19th - Manchester, Academy 3
