MV’s review of the album is live tomorrow. Some tour news now
The Virginmarys, having recently returned from a successful US tour, have now confirmed a run of headline UK shows for June; the shows, including an appearance at the inaugural Stone Free Festival at the O2 in London, are in support of the Macclesfield trio’s latest studio album, Divides, set for release via Spinefarm Records on May 6th…
“This is an incredibly special tour for us!” says vocalist / guitarist Ally Dickaty. “The ‘Divides’ album tour!! It’s going to be so great to get back in front of our home fans again, and really important to us to play some of the towns we’ve been wanting to come back to for so long. Our fans always do us proud, they are incredible.”
The band recently unveiled new track, Motherless Land, the video for which is about to be launched; the song – as with previous single, Into Dust – comes from the aforementioned Divides, a 12-track work laced with power, passion & outspoken energy, and produced by the legendary Gil Norton (Pixies, Foo Fighters, etc.).
