Dry Cleaning announce Brighton concert in support of new album

Posted On 07 Sep 2022 at 10:27 pm

Dry Cleaning are heading back to Brighton

South London post-punk outfit Dry Cleaning, who are Florence Cleopatra Shaw (vocals), Thomas Paul Dowse (guitar), Nicholas Hugh Andrew Buxton (drums and percussion) and Lewis Maynard (bass), have become a regular feature on the BBC 6Music playlists. They have an effortless ability to craft a strange, dream-like allure, which is fuelled by Florence Shaw’s scathing poetry. The band built a successful reputation with transcendent live shows in the UK’s bright musical communities pre lockdown.

They have now announced that they will be taking to the road in support of their forthcoming new 11 tune album, which is titled ‘Stumpwork’ and set to drop on 21st October 2022 via 4AD.

‘Stumpwork’ with its creepy front cover will be available in several formats including white vinyl, limited edition black vinyl (yes really!), CD, cassette and download. There’s even an exclusive glow in the dark tea towel. Don’t believe me? Then look below….
