Delta Spirit frontman, Matthew Logan Vasquez today announces an 8 date UK headline tour, taking in The Old Blue Last in London on Wednesday 12th June. Ahead of the UK, MLV also plays four dates in the Netherlands, supporting both Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats and Old Crow Medicine Show.  MLV brings with him a 3 piece band made up with musicians Brendan Bond and Judson Johnson, fresh off tour in the US, showcasing a unique brand of rowdy, Waits influenced Americana.

The tour announcement follows the release of MLV’s debut solo album ‘Does What He Wants’. As fans of Delta Spirit and Vasquez’s work with Middle Brother, the band he formed with Deertick’s John McCauley and Dawe’s Taylor Goldsmith, know well, Vasquez knows how to fuse passion with poetry in his writing and then ignite the combination with his staggeringly expressive vocals. In new single ‘Same’, Vasquez develops this well-established Americana sound, and infuses it with flourishes of groove and gospel.

Throughout ‘Does What He Wants’, vivid stories are juxtaposed with retro textures, helping piece together a narrative of the constantly self-aware and restlessly creative individual that is Matthew Logan Vasquez. This is a genuinely personal record that tackles universally relatable frustrations and miseries of life; impatient landlords, lack of stability and financial woes, whilst managing to remain ever hopeful and positive throughout.
