PJ HARVEY Announces UK Shows In September

PJ Harvey
September UK Shows Announced

Following the release of her critically acclaimed eighth studio album ‘Let England Shake’, PJ Harvey has announced two new UK live shows for September, coming to Glasgow Royal Concert Hall on 4th and Manchester O2 Apollo on 8th.

PJ Harvey’s new album was recorded in a 19th Century church in Dorset, on a cliff-top overlooking the sea.  It was created with a cast of musicians including such long-standing allies as Flood, John Parish, and Mick Harvey.  It is the eighth PJ Harvey album, following 2007’s acclaimed ‘White Chalk’, and the Harvey/Parish collaboration ‘A Woman A Man Walked By’.

‘Let England Shake’ evokes the troubled spirit of 2010, but it also casts its mind back to times and places from our long collective memory.  In keeping with such imaginative intentions, its music has a rare breadth and emotional power.  Nearly two decades after she made her first records, it proves not just that its author refuses to stand still, but that her creative confidence may well be at an all-time high.  It is safe to say that you will not have heard anything like it before.

Harvey is currently collaborating on various visual projects with the respected photo-journalist Seamus Murphy.  Murphy, an award winning photographer, has spent over two decades uniquely documenting conflict through his lens.  His work has brought him to Rwanda, Eritrea, Kosovo, Iran and Iraq. He has also spent extensive periods of time photographing Afghanistan, and his most recent book ‘A Darkness Visible: Afghanistan’ is a classic illustration of life in Afghanistan, the rise of the Taliban and the impact of U.S. invasion. 

PJ Harvey has also announced festival appearances at Bestival and Electric Picnic ahead of the new shows.
