Kurt Vile & The Violators
+ Lushes

O2 Ritz will be playing host to Kurt Vile on Wednesday 18th November, who will be performing live alongside his backing band The Violators and a selection of special supporting guests.

Kurt Vile is not only known for his solo career, as he was also a founding member of the indie rock band The War On Drugs, with whom he recorded their first studio album Wagonwheel Blues. During his solo career Vile has released 5 studio albums, with his 6th set for release this year. His 2013 LP Walking On A Pretty Daze is his most successful, which charted in 9 countries including the UK. Kurt Vile embarked on a tour after the release of the album with his backing band and the “auxiliary Violator” Steve Gunn.

Kurt’s backing band The Violators consist of Jesse Trbovich and Rob Laasko, both of whom are multi-instrumentalists. Kyle Spence is The Violator’s drummer, who is also active in the bank Harvey Milk. It is this line up that appears on the newly announced album All Over The Place, which Vile has quoted is as you’d expect from the title of the album, inspired by a number of artists from all over the musical spectrum, turning it into his cohesive indie rock sound.

All Over The Place does not yet have a release date, however Kurt Vile and The Violators will be setting off on their world tour in July, with summer festival dates at Citadel, Pitchfork and Winnipeg Folk Festival before smaller gigs all over Europe. Vile will visit Amsterdam, Oslo, Berlin, Koln and Stockholm before coming over to the UK where he will play in Manchester on November 18th.
