Gruff Rhys Announces New Us And UK 2014 Autumn Tour Dates

Gruff Rhys announces the release of 'Liberty (Is Where We'll Be)', the second single from his hugely acclaimed fourth solo album, with a new video and the confirmation of an autumn tour across the UK and Europe.

The single is due on July 21st on Turnstile and is taken from 'American Interior', Gruff's highest charting solo record to date and part of a uniquely ambitious multi-format project telling the story of Welsh explorer John Evans' fantastical journey across the States to find a lost tribe of Welsh speaking Native Americans.

'Liberty (Is Where We'll Be)' sees Gruff takes Evans' own diary entries to create lyrics for a gorgeously harmonic piece of string drenched baroque pop - nothing less than the sound of one of our greatest songwriters at the height of his powers.

As previously announced, Gruff will take the story of John Evans to Glastonbury for a multi-media tour of this year's festival. Following that, he plays a UK tour of churches, town halls and iconic venues (including a sold-out show at London's Queen Elizabeth Hall on September 20th) before heading off to Europe in October and then North America in November.
