The Clientele announce North American tour!

The Clientele announce North American tour!

Alasdair, Mark, James & Mel will be stateside in February to support their new album, Bonfires on the Heath

Featured on individual critic's year end lists at The Onion AV Club, Pitchfork, NPR Music, and more, Bonfires on the Heath is in a sense a return to the Clientele’s roots; the dreamlike suburban landscapes first encountered in the early singles, their trippy sense of menace stronger now. Back in London, they’ve drawn on older traditions of English folk, which exist here side by side with the band’s more familiar bossa and pop elements. Mel Draisey’s contributions on piano and violin add beautifully to MacLean’s timeless, eerie songs.

Bonfires on the Heath is available on CD, LP (with MP3 download) and digital download in the Merge store, and watch video of The Clientele playing a stripped-down version of "Bonfires on the Heath" from XX Merge!
