The Victorian English Gentlemens Club Announce UK / European Tour

The Victorian English Gentlemens Club, who released their third album ‘Bag Of Meat’ via This Is Fake DIY Records in June 2011, have just announced details of a Europe wide tour, kicking off next week in Norwich.

The album, the follow-up to 2009’s ‘Love On An Oil Rig’, was recorded over Autumn/Winter 2010/11 in Cardiff, with producer Charlie Francis.

The band describe the record as having ‘two halves’: the first, “a reaction to the last album, heavier and darker with lots of layers of brutal noise”, and the second “a return to our earlier stuff – quirkier and emptier, more vocal lead”. The songs are nearly all sub-three minutes.

The songs are about heart attacks, beheading, car crashes, John Denver, Paul Daniels, meat, tribes and addictions to accident speculation.

The Victorian English Gentlemens Club are Louise Mason, Adam Taylor and James Griffiths. Louise and Adam are vegetarian.
