YOUNG FATHERS Announce Fall Tour Behind Praised New Album ‘Cocoa Sugar’

Edinburgh’s critically praised Young Fathers have announced a highly anticipated fall North American tour, fresh off of a blazing run of sold-out headline shows in Brooklyn & Los Angeles plus back to back performances at Hollywood Bowlsupporting LCD Soundsystem and Yeah Yeah Yeahs. The tour kicks off November 9 in Los Angeles and culminates in New York City on November 20. Full list of dates below. Tickets on sale this Friday at 10 AM local times.

The New Yorker recently said of their NYC show, “Their music is a rough, clamorous, avant-garde union of a dozen genres: at various points, their show turned the room into a punk basement, a Pentecostal revival, a bounce set, a Sigur Rós-like ambient fantasia, and a 4 a.m. industrial trance. The effect was gorgeous… Their chemistry onstage is kinetic and wildly contagious. It’s also generous, the same way their music is generous…”

Young Fathers released their third album, Cocoa Sugar, via Ninja Tune on March 9. Featuring the singles “In My View,” “Lord” and “Toy,” Cocoa Sugar builds on the widespread acclaim of their two previous full-length records: 2014’s Mercury Prize winning DEAD and 2015’s White Men Are Black Men Too.
