American singer songwriter returns to the UK with support from Edwyn Collins, Frightened Rabbit, Hookworms and The Orielles
It's a 2018 UK exclusive for the artist formerly known as J. Tillman, who has blossomed into one of the world's most prominent singer-songwriters since leaving his role as the drummer in Fleet Foxes.
His third album, Pure Comedy, was released in April 2017, spoke vividly of the maddening times we live in, receiving rave reviews and elevating its creator to festival main stages.
He'll be joined at the spectacular Piece Hall (recently reopened after a £19m restoration project) by iconic Orange Juice singer Edwyn Collins, and his fellow Scottish indie giants Frightened Rabbit.
The lineup is completed by two acts from closer to home. Leeds based Hookworms bring their intense live show, and tracks from their rapturously received third album Microshift to Halifax, along with hometown heroes The Orielles.
The trio, who release their debut album Silver Dollar Moment this week, continue their meteoric rise by opening the star-studded bill in the town they were raised in.
