Del Amitri Tour Comes To Yorkshire in September 2021
It’s been 19 years since Del Amitri last released a studio album. But they’ve just announced a tour on the back of releasing their new record, Fatal Mistakes.
It’s their first full UK headline tour for three years. And the Del Amitri Tour hits Yorkshire on 18th September at York Barbican, and Sheffield City Hall three days later.
Del Amitri frontman Justin Currie said: “It’s been nearly 20 years since we toured with a new album. Lord knows what took us so long. The prospect of sprinkling our set with a few choices from Fatal Mistakes fills us with the sort of excitement that, for some men of our age, might call for light medication. We think the adrenaline will see us through.”
Contemporary heartland rock quintet The Byson Family will support on all dates. Fronted by former Temperance Movement vocalist Phil Campbell, the soft release of the band’s debut album Kick The Traces went straight to number 1 on the Independent Breakers chart and to number 3 on the Scottish Albums chart when it was released in January. An extended version of the album will receive a full release this summer.
Throughout their first chapter, Del Amitri released a succession of hits – including ‘Nothing Ever Happens’, ‘Always The Last To Know’ and ‘Roll To Me’ – which became international radio staples. They reunited for sold-out tours in 2014 and 2018, when Justin Currie and Iain Harvie began writing songs that would form the foundations for Fatal Mistakes.
“A wealth of new content”
Fatal Mistakes will be released on CD, vinyl and digital formats and is available to pre-order here. The Del Amitri official store offers a selection of exclusive formats including coloured vinyl and a cassette plus new merch designs. It also offers the five-track CD ‘Outtakes and B-Sides’, which features five unreleased tracks from the ‘Fatal Mistakes’ recording sessions.
In addition, Del Amitri have launched a ‘Making Music’ series of videos. The campaign features a wealth of new content, with weekly videos including track-by-track commentary on the new album. Fans can also hear Currie’s solo versions of the songs.
