SQUID

FIELDWORKS // ALTERNATIVE SOCIALLY DISTANCED TOUR

 

 

PRE-ORDER DEBUT ALBUM BRIGHT GREEN FIELD BEFORE MONDAY 26 APRIL TO GAIN ACCESS TO THE TOUR

 

BRIGHT GREEN FIELD LP // 7 MAY 2021 // WARP RECORDS

 

 

SQUID has announced FIELDWORKS, their alternative socially distanced UK tour which presents a unique opportunity for fans to witness the band’s creative process first-hand. SQUID has always flourished when fleshing out new material in front of fans, feeding on their energy to create something transcendental. It takes a fearlessly forward-looking band to take this unexpected turn and play exclusively new ideas.

 

Fans who pre-order the debut album, BRIGHT GREEN FIELD, before 26 April will get the opportunity to experience SQUID at their creative best as they test out new ideas and collaborate with special guests along the way.

 

The FIELDWORKS tour is an opportunity for fans to experience something different in a number of beautiful and unusual settings before the band head out on their headline UK tour when fans will be able to hear BRIGHT GREEN FIELD live for the first time.

 

SQUID on the FIELDWORKS tour: “With all this time rooted in one place, we’ve been hard at work writing new music together. We thought that this little tour of places off the beaten track would be a great opportunity to show you all some new tunes, and some REALLY new tunes We can’t wait to play some of these places that aren’t on the traditional touring circuit and to see all your faces.”

BRIGHT GREEN FIELD features field recordings of ringing church bells, tooting bees, microphones swinging from the ceiling orbiting a room of guitar amps, a distorted choir of 30 voices, as well as a horn and string ensemble featuring the likes of Emma-Jean Thackray and Lewis Evans from Black Country, New Road. However, for all the innovative recording techniques, evolutionary leaps, lyrical themes, ideas and narratives that underpin the album, it’s also a joyous and emphatic record. One that marries the uncertainties of the world with a curious sense of exploration as it endlessly twists and turns down unpredictable avenues.
