Cold Specks are set to head out on tour this Autumn, after announcing a full set of October shows.

A Canadian artist living and working in the UK, Al Spx remains an outsider. Helming Cold Specks, the singer's warm, open voice is matched by challenging, inventive songwriting.

Releasing her debut album earlier this year, Cold Specks toasted the occasion in fine style with a three night stand at Hoxton Hall. ClashMusic were lucky enough to be there, and caught a performer who seems to filter an experimental mindset into the permanence of Americana.

Now Cold Specks have confirmed a number of October shows. Stretching around the country, the dates open in London with a show at the Union Chapel.

Shifting around the country, the dates end with a short trip across the Irish sea for a one off Dublin show. Tickets are on sale now - until then, enjoy this clip of Cold Specks performing 'Hector' live at Hoxton Hall.
