Gascon duo, The Inspector Cluzo, follow a whirlwind 2019 with details of their first headline UK tour for 2020. The pair will play headline shows to follow the release of new album, ‘Brothers In Ideals’, an acoustically based reimagining of their 2018 breakthrough album release, ‘We, The People Of The Soil’.
‘Brothers In Ideals’ was inspired by a 2016 acoustic session for ARTE-DEEZER in the house of Artur Rimbaud; a session that proved so popular that the band were continually asked by fans whether a different set up to their traditional, and hard rocking, drums and guitar attack, could be recorded. Initially thought of by Cluzo as an experiment, the results of four days, with long term producer Vance Powell in his Nashville studios and friends on strings and keys, were so impressive that, as singer Laurent explains:
“We were not planning to release it …but it is our own label and we do what we want. We never have a career plan..we just follow our artistic desire”.
The tour will see Cluzo in their traditional guise, Laurent on vocals and guitar, Matthieu on drums and follows a hugely successful UK jaunt with Clutch in December of 2018 and a serious crowd for their Download set in June 2019. In keeping with their reputation as one the most prolific touring bands in the world, Cluzo also managed US support tours with Clutch and Eels in 2019 alongside a host of festival appearances across the globe and a maiden US headline tour.
