WITHERED HAND'S FIRST FULL BAND GIG IN THE NORTH EAST SINCE THE RELEASE OF THE INCREDIBLE 'NEW GODS'
This will be the last chance to see Withered Hand as a full band here for many months!

Praise for Withered Hand/ New Gods:

"Popping, glowing and glimmering like Evan Dando without the dickhead factor" - Drowned in Sound 8/10
"Endlessly loveable stuff- NME
"Lucid moments of perfection" - Line of best fit
"A sad sack you can't help but root for" - Rolling Stone

New Gods saw Withered Hand entering a proper studio for the first time to work with legendary Scottish producer Tony Doogan (Belle & Sebastian, Mogwai, Mountain Goats, Teenage Fanclub), and features guest appearances from a veritable who's who of Scottish music including King Creosote, Eugene Kelly of The Vaselines, and members of Belle & Sebastian(Stevie Jackson, Chris Geddes) and Frightened Rabbit (Scott Hutchison).

Across the eleven songs on New Gods, Willson deals with the big stuff: love, death,friendship, infidelity, road trips, stargazing and cough mixture abuse. First single proper, the magnificent ‘Horseshoe’, kicks off proceedings with its plaintive entreaty “Please don’t put a shadow on her lung”. Love and the fear of loss is the theme here.

“Nobody you love will ever die,” sings Dan. It’s followed by the album taster track ‘Black Tambourine’, the purest pop song on the album, an anti-hipster anthem that jangles in all the right places. ‘King Of Hollywood’ details a night in LA with Willson’s friend and mentor King Creosote, Willson’s keen eye for detail as hilarious as ever, while title track ‘New Gods’ sees him transported to Switzerland, cutting across the fields at night and staring up at the Milky Way, like a huge ribbon across the sky, infinitely beautiful and humbling. This is widescreen pop music.
