Chris T-t Extends Spring 2014 European Tour Dates

Chris T-T extends his tour of Europe this Spring with a run of dates with the fantastic Mark McCabe. They will follow on from the tour already announced supporting the wonderful Emily Barker. Expect live solo performances of material from latest opus 'The Bear' as well as a selection from across his vast repertoire. All dates are below.

To coincide with the tours, Chris will release the stunning digital single 'A Beaten Drum' on 16th June 2014 featuring a mesmeric piano version and the full album version of the song alongside an impro piano version of 'Tunguska' as b-sides.

'The Bear' is Chris's 3rd album for label Xtra Mile Recordings. Recorded with his band The Hoodrats, together they have departed from the paired down introspection of 2010's 'Love Is Not Rescue' and instead created a full-on psych rock record with hints of Sebadoh, early Hold Steady, early Yo La Tengo, or Blur at their heavier moments and with a nod to grimy garage-y 60s like The Faces and Animals. Channelling these influences, Chris and his band taped the album close to live, completing songs in 3 or 4 takes just as those bands would have done back then. The result is a fascinating and excitingly fresh sounding record and some of his best work to date.
