With Tune-Yards set to hit the UK this weekend for a short run of dates including London's Field Day festival, Merrill Garbus has confirmed a further string of US shows for the summer.
The last chance to see Merrill et al touring 2014's Nikki Nack, this week sees the end of the group's European tour with performances in Germany and the UK, whilst a number of final Northeast dates have been announced for early August. All tour dates are below, including additional festival updates. Merrill will also be performing a new composition with the Emanon Winter Guard for David Byrne's Contemporary Color in Toronto and Brooklyn later this month. All details here.
As part of their 50th anniversary special, Huck featured tUnE-yArDs; you can read the fascinating interview here. Merrill recently spoke to Song Exploder to discuss the roots and creation of the single 'Water Fountain', which you can hear here. 'The Water Fountain', the charity set up by tUnE-yArDs, have also been able to gift a total of $72,500 to three organisations, thanks to kind support.
