With the release of their début album next week, North London group Gengahr are set to undertake a whistle-stop tour of free in-store shows.
Taking in three records shops including Kingston’s Banquet Records on the date of the album release (15th of June), the band will then make subsequent stops at Rise Bristol (16th) and finally Fopp Manchester (17th) for live sets and LP signings at each. Full times and details are listed below.
‘A DREAM OUTSIDE’ – ALBUM TRAILER:
Tonight, the band are to launch ‘A Dream Outside’ at the Rio Cinema in London, where they will play the album in its entirety in a stripped back format for the occasion.
Earlier this week, the band also shared a trailer for ‘A Dream Outside’ ahead of its release. Filmed in Stoke Newington by close friend Billy Howard-Price, the short offers a behind the scenes look as the boys prepare for their sold out album launch party at legendary Dalston cinema, the Rio. The film is soundtracked by cuts from the band’s album and features previously unheard material ‘Trampoline’ and instrumental ‘Dark Star’.
Details of Gengahr’s intimate in-store shows to celebrate the release of ‘A Dream Outside’ are as follows:
Monday 15th June 6pm Banquet Records, Kingston
Tuesday 16th June 5pm Rise, Bristol
Wednesday 17th June 5pm Fopp, Manchester
The band have also recently covered Fugazi’s ‘I’m So Tired’ – listen here’ and announced they will be performing at Glastonbury Festival this year.
While they bashfully describe their successes to date as “happy accidents”, there’s clearly something greater at work behind Gengahr’s rise. A timelessness that has captured the hearts of all they’ve come into contact with, last year’s signing to independent Transgressive and the upcoming release of their debut album A Dream Outside – awarded five stars by DIY magazine – are just the start. Comparisons to Radiohead are anything but reductive; there is sure to be a similarly twisting and enormous path ahead of this hypnotic North London quartet.
A Dream Outside will be released on June 15th on Transgressive Records, for more information please click here.
