Noir-popster announces four-date UK tour this autumn

Pop curio Gemma Ray is due to embark on a brief UK tour this September, in support of her album Island Fire, released earlier this year via Bronzerat.

She's already had a busy summer, touring with Marianne Faithfull, Ane Brun and Kitty Daisy and Lewis, as well as teaming up with the 64-piece Filmorchester Babelsberg for special shows in Berlin.

Also, she may play some tracks from her next full-length, Down Baby Down, to be released in November, but it’s worth going just to see her play a vintage Hagstrom with a kitchen knife.

Support in Cardiff and London comes from Gulp, the new endeavour of Guto Pryce of Super Furry Animals fame, Lindsey Leven and Gid Goundrey.

Check out the dates below:

Sat 8 September - Georgian Theatre, Stockton
Sun 9 September - ABC2 (No Mean City Festival), Glasgow
Mon 10 September - Clwb Ifor Bach, Cardiff

Wed 12 September - Borderline, London
