British shows confirmed...

Villagers will play a number of UK shows this November - ticket details below.

Achieving a Mercury nomination with his debut album, Conan O'Brien faced an uphill struggle when crafting a follow up. Yet the new Villagers full length is - if anything - an improvement, with '{Awayland}' proving to be a work of refinement, of subtle progression.

So much so, in fact, that Clash spoke a length with the songwriter about its gestation - find that piece HERE.

Spending time on the road, Conan O'Brien recently took part in Beck's Song Reader event at the Barbican. Hooking up with his band, Villagers will see out the summer with a number of high profile festival slots.

Looking ahead, the band will complete a UK show in November. Villagers are set to play Edinburgh venue Queens Hall on November 5th, before travelling south to England.

Hitting London on November 7th, Villagers are set to play Heaven before seeing out the tour in Oxford, Bath and Norwich.
