Guided By Voices Summer Tour Dates
Thursday, April 26, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm MST
Following sold-out shows in the Northeast, Guided By Voices have announced July and August tour dates. Last month, the band released their standalone 2018 record Space Gun, which premiered on Consequence Of Sound. Along with the album stream, COS had guitarist Doug Gillard do a track by track breakdown for the LP. The band also recently released a new live album, Ogre’s Trumpet. The limited edition live LP came out on March 9th on GBV Inc.
In 2018, Guided By Voices will release precisely one new album, Space Gun. Once you hear it, you will know why.
With a renowned work ethic and a daily pot of coffee, Robert Pollard continues to outclass younger generations of come-and-go rock bands. After 20+ years, 100+ albums, 2000+ songs, Pollard still can’t really explain (or doesn’t want to explain) his secret: “The songs just come to me.”
In 2017, the new GBV line-up (veterans Doug Gillard and Kevin March and newcomers Mark Shue and Bobby Bare Jr) blew away audiences at Coachella and Growlers Fest, touring behind the ambitious and sprawling multi-vocalist double album August By Cake, followed just months later by the concise punchy / catchy How Do You Spell Heaven. Pollard has acknowledged that this line-up’s adroit talents pushes him to more daring and dizzying heights.
And now, here it comes…Space Gun, the fullest realization yet of Pollard’s song talents, with the band firing on all cylinders. “Here it comes, here it comes, here it comes…”
Invention and imagination remain the undiminished life-forces of a Guided by Voices record and Space Gun absolutely crackles with this energy. This band is on fire.
