Psych prog rocker Rosalie Cunningham has confirmed a run of live UK dates for September and October. Cunningham also confirms that he will be debuting material from her upcoming solo album.
"It looks like the mind-boggling ambiguity and the dream-beating barrage of bad news for the live music industry may finally be over," she says. "Yesterday we were given the glorious news that restrictions are to be lifted entirely on 19th July which means our long awaited UK tour is ON! We have been waiting for this moment since March last year so you can expect us to rock our little silver lurex socks off on those stages. We will be playing some stuff from my first solo record, a few Purson numbers and, most excitingly, most of the upcoming new album. The new songs have got to be some of the most satisfying material i've ever played.
"Through the oppressive, joy-smothering, fug of the past year or so, it's easy to look back on the period as some sort of perpetual creative limbo. But that would be to ignore the thousands of hours of heart and soul and the moments of genuine divine inspiration that went into creating this record. It's been my most difficult to make, no doubt about it, but it's often the most contrary kids who grow up to do wonderful things. I'm really proud of this little one."
Cunningham released her self-titled debut album through Esoteric Records in 2019.
