Nathan Connolly has announced news of a UK and Ireland tour. The six dates in mid-June include London, Glasgow and a hometown show in Belfast’s Limelight 2.
The tour follows the news of Connolly’s debut solo album, The Strange Order Of Things, set for release on April 21st. Debut single ‘Fires‘ featuring Biffy Clyro’s Simon Neil was released last month. Also featuring guest appearances from Irish artist Ailbhe Reddy, as well as long-time collaborators Dave and Herb Magee (LaFaro, Little Matador, Arvo Party), Stephen Leacock (General Fiasco) and Gavin Fox (Turn, Idlewild, Little Matador), his newest venture looks to mark a seminal moment in his career to date.
Nathan Connolly has been the guitarist with acclaimed Northern Irish rock band Snow Patrol since 2002. Since then, they have gone on to sell 17 million albums, headline festivals, achieve five UK platinum albums, an Ivor Novello award and Grammy and Mercury Music Prize nominations. In 2013, Connolly founded Little Matador with drummer Paul ‘Binzer’ Brennan, bassist Gavin Fox and guitarists Troy Stewart and Dave Magee. They released their self-titled album the following year.
Connolly describes his solo album as “trying to understand, make sense and work through events that have led to who I am now: heartache, regret, emotional cost and fatherhood”.
