Kristin Hersh previews ‘Breathe In’ from ‘Possible Dust Clouds’ LP ahead of UK tour, signs to Fire Records
Kristin Hersh, celebrated singer/songwriter and frontwoman of seminal 4AD band Throwing Muses and power trio 50FOOTWAVE, will be releasing her new solo album ‘Possible Dust Clouds’ on October 5 via Fire Records. Following the first single ‘LAX’, announced a few weeks ago, she now presents a rough mix of another song to feature on te album – ‘Breathe In’, a turbulent cracker with an assertive swagger.
Hersh is also gearing up for her United Kingdom tour with a string of 11 shows and a repertoire comprising material spanning her career, her poignant true stories bringing the listener into what the BBC calls Hersh’s “dark and dizzy world”.
Following news of her sold-out June 21 show at Robert Smith’s Meltdown, the UK’s longest-running artist-curated music festival, additional shows in London, Glasgow, Newcastle, Halifax, Cambridge, Ramsgate, Brighton, and Bristol were announced.
In 2004, Kristin formed 50FOOTWAVE, releasing a series of frighteningly intense mini-albums, the latest being the ‘Bath White’ EP was described as “a series of loud explosions, of velvet like dreams all intermingled at the same time”. Kristin’s writing career has flourished with the highly acclaimed ‘Paradoxical Undressing’ (released as ‘Rat Girl’ in the USA) and the award winning ‘Don’t Suck, Don’t Die’, a personal account of her long friendship with the late Vic Chesnutt.
