Kurt Vile To Bring His Violators To Koko

Acclaimed musician, songwriter and producer Kurt Vile and his band The Violators will be hitting the the road for a headline tour as well as a couple of festival stops including an appearance at Black Deer Festival and London’s legendary Koko on Monday 12th June. The Koko show will be Vile’s first headline show in London since 2019 and follows the release of his critically acclaimed ninth album (watch my moves) released on Verve Records last year.

The tour will take in eight UK cities, including Manchester and Glasgow before Kurt Vile and The Violators head into Europe for a run of shows and festivals. (watch my moves) was named an album of the year by Uncut, MOJO and The Observer, who described the 15 track collection as “gently psychedelic tunes meandering to just the right places, where Vile’s preternatural serenity felt like a balm.”

Produced by the Lansdowne, Pennsylvania native himself along with Rob Schnapf, the album features special guests Chastity Belt, Cate Le Bon and percussionists Stella Mozgawa (Warpaint, Courtney Barnett) and Sarah Jones (Hot Chip, Harry Styles). (watch my moves) featured the singles Like Exploding Stones, Hey Like A Child, Mount Airy Hill and Flyin’ (like a fast train).
