Elbow map stateside tour

, Staff

Elbow have revealed plans for a stateside tour in support of their forthcoming album, The Take Off and Landing of Everything. The English rockers will cross the pond and hit Massachusetts for a performance at Boston’s Royale on Monday, May 12. Tickets for the show, which will also feature opener John Grant, will go on sale Friday at noon through Ticketmaster for $35.

The Take Off and Landing of Everything, Elbow’s sixth studio effort and follow-up to 2011’s Build a Rocket Boys!, will be released on March 11. The recording process began in November 2012, when the band spent two weeks at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios in Box before moving back to their own Blueprint Studios in Salford to complete the album. The band took a new approach to writing and recording this time around. Previously songs were mostly developed by the band as a whole, but this new album sees individual members and sub-groups take the lead on several tracks. As with previous albums, The Seldom Seen Kid and Build a Rocket Boys!, The Take Off and Landing of Everything was produced by the band’s keyboardist Craig Potter.

Fans can get a taste of the new material with lead single “New York Morning”, which is streaming below.
