The Divine Comedy have announced a new UK & Ireland Tour and will be coming to the Ulster Hall on 07 October 2019 with special guests Man & The Echo.
Neil Hannon, one of the country’s foremost songwriters, releases a wonderful new Divine Comedy album Office Politics. It’s the follow-up to the acclaimed top ten 2016 album Foreverland.
Office Politics is a 16 track tour de force full of inventive, timeless music peopled with a typically irreverent cast of characters. “It has synthesizers. And songs about synthesizers,” Neil says. “But don’t panic. It also has guitars, orchestras, accordions, and songs about love and greed.” But Office Politics central characters are the machines. Or Infernal Machines as one track rages.
“I do try to make normal records,” Neil says with a smile. ”But it always seems to wander off into odd territories.”
And for that we should be thankful.
