FRIEND. AMIGO. PADRE. PAL. MON AMI.
On Monday, May 4th, Rozi Plain's new album Friend is officially released.
You can pre-order the album right now, on CD, LP or as part of a special t-shirt + CD/Vinyl bundle.
When it arrives, with the gentle drop of a needle on lovely thick black spinning vinyl, your world will becomes a calmer, gentler, better place. So let's PAAAAAARTTYYYYYYYY (*sounds air horn*).
The Rozz-master General is in session for the ever-charming Marc Riley on BBC 6Music TONIGHT from 7pm - be sure to tune in!
Continuing on Tuesday, April 28 at the Castle in Manchester, then carrying on to Thekla in Bristol (Apr 29), The Basement in York (Apr 30), Summerhall in Edinburgh (May 1), Old Bridge Inn in Aviemore (May 2), Drouthy Cobbler in Elgin (May 3) Mono in Glasgow (May 4) and The Lexington in London (May 5), the Rozi Plain Album Launch Party Fun Bus™ is coming to a town near you. Support at all the dates south of the border comes from masters of fragrant, fruity electro-pop Babe, while up in Embra attendees will be treated to opening sets from Supermoon and Lost Map's very own eagleowl. Lost Map head honcho, The Pictish Trail, will be supporting at some special intimate shows in Aviemore and Elgin over the 2nd and 3rd of May ... and he'll be the opening support for a FREE show in Glasgow, at Mono, on the album release date (Bank Holiday Monday, May 4th).
If none of these are dates and locations are to your cosmological advantage, fear not, because Rozi is touring like a dawg all summer long from one end of these fair isles to 't'other and beyond (recent additions to the Plainster's schedule include Roddy Idlewild's Iona Village Hall Music Festival on July 3, also featuring The Pictish Trail and Tuff Love). See below for all the details.
Keep your eyes and ears peeled later this week for a sneak preview of Friend somewhere on the interwebz...
