One of the country’s most exhilarating new live acts, Louis Berry has announced 10 European dates this May including two intimate album launch shows at Sebright Arms and in his home-town of Liverpool at District.
Louis released his first new music of 2018 in the shape of ‘Stumbling’ last month written and produced by Louis, Marcus Foster and Koz, the Grammy winning Canadian producer (Dua Lipa, Kendrick Lamar) and showcases Louis’s tremendous vocals. Stumbling is the first taste to be taken from his forthcoming debut album which will be released on Ministry of Sound.. He will also support Liam Gallagher for two shows (Belfast & Dublin) this June, as well as appearing at Live At Leeds in May.

Lisbon 2018: These countries will participate!
The 2018 Eurovision Song Contest will see 42 countries participate:
Gorillaz share a surprise new track, Garage Palace featuring Little Simz. The song has already been raucously received at their live shows and now it comes accompanied by a brilliantly retro 8-bit video game visualiser. Collaborating with Little Simz’ illustrator McKay Felt and director Noah Harris, this video adds to their long run of innovative and ground-breaking work, with the game ingeniously following Simz through dark alleys and cloudy skies on a series of combats, missions and obstacles to reach the top of a tower block for her final battle, but not without the collective muscle of Gorillaz behind her. Level UP!
Even more excitingly, Little Simz will be supporting Gorillaz on the Humanz tour across European and U.K. dates this Autumn/Winter. European dates commence in November which will lead to their homecoming gigs in London’s O2 Arena on December 4th and 5th, with their usual line up of surprise special guests.
The Super Deluxe Vinyl Boxset consists of Gorillaz’ new album Humanz, presented across 14 individual pieces of 12-inch different coloured vinyl, packaged in individually art-worked sleeves. All tracks on Humanz are backed with a non-album bonus track, most of which are previously unreleased. The Boxset also Includes a 54-page, cloth-bound, foil-blocked, hardback book of Gorillaz artwork by Jamie Hewlett and a download card, all housed in a bespoke 12-inch vinyl carrying case.
