Florence + The Machine have announced a run of North American tour dates for October, primarily along the West Coast. The trek begins October 11 in Austin, and winds up in Seattle on October 27. Six dates are in California, including two night stands in Los Angeles (10/16-17) and Berkeley (10/21-22). Florence’s third album, How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful, was released this week.
In less than two weeks, Florence and the Machine will return with their much-anticipated new album, How Big How Blue How Beautiful. Already we’ve heard a handful of its tracks, including “What Kind of Man”, “Ship to Wreck”, and “St. Jude”. Now, the UK outfit has offered another preview in “Delilah”.
Frontwoman Florence Welch may still be nursing a broken foot, but her voice is as mighty as ever. Here, Welch goes high and low with ease — a sultry sorceress one minute, a falsetto-blessed nightingale the next.
How Big How Blue How Beautiful arrives on June 2nd through Republic Records.
