Nation Of Language UK/IRE Tour starts today





UK/IRE Tour starts today

Double sided 7” with exclusive trackout 9th December via PIAS


From Brooklyn, Nation Of Language released their album A Way Forward which came out last year to critical acclaim from NME (5 Stars), Financial Times (4 Stars), Gigwise, Pitchfork, Mojo, Stereogum, SPIN, and more.

They kick off their UK/IRE tour today, with dates in Brighton, Bristol, London, Birmingham, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Manchester, Liverpool, and Dublin.

They shared new single ‘From The Hill’ recently, taken from a 7″ out 9th December via PIAS, and it’ll include an exclusive track.

After four years of releasing the odd single, the band were desperate to make a full album but due to financial constraints it wasn’t possible. It was only when Ian Devaney and Aiden Noell from the band decided to get married, they had the idea for people to give them wedding presents in the form of donations so they could finally record debut album Introduction, Presence. Everything that came after, was due to their own hard work, and the success of this album meant they were able to record A Way Forward. Guitarist Alex MacKay joined in 2022

A Way Forward captured the trials and tribulations of modern life  — from the simplest forms of human connection to surviving a world in which political corporate machines spew a stream of digital pollution through every device. While much of the sounds on first album Introduction, Presence garnered comparisons to the synth-punk sound of the 80’s, with this new set of songs the band delved heavily into the Krautrock pioneers and electronic experimentalists of the 70’s for inspiration in the studio, stretching their boundaries in new and different ways. 



The band have had outstanding support from The Times, DIY, NME, Pitchfork, BBC6 Music, CLASH, Gigwise, Consequence and more. Previous single ‘This Fractured Mind’ was on the BBC6 Music A-List for 4 weeks, with ‘A Word & A Wave’, ‘Across That Fine Line’,  ‘Wounds Of Love’, and ‘The Grey Commute’ being tasters of the album. A Way Forward has also received an incredible 5 Stars from NME, and an 8/10 from Gigwise, as well as doing a live session for KEXP.
