Lloyd Cole has confirmed six New Zealand concerts in November for his “From Rattlesnakes to Guesswork” tour, with Lloyd Cole and the Commotions guitarist Neil Clark joining him on stage.

The duo will perform an entire career-retrospective of Cole’s songbook, reaching right back to the Commotions’ debut Rattlesnakes record and as far forward as his much anticipated new solo album Guesswork (out July 26, 2019).

Plus1 presale begins at 12 pm on Tuesday 18 June, and tickets are on general sale at 9 am Thursday 20 June. Full info at www.plus1.co.nz/lloyd-cole

Fans can look forward to enjoying material from Lloyd Cole and the Commotions albumsRattlesnakes, Easy Pieces and Mainstream, along with tracks from many of his nine solo albums released between X (1990) and Guesswork (2019).

Lloyd Cole will release his new solo LP, Guesswork July 26th, 2019. The eight-track record features two former bandmates - guitarist Neil Clark and pianist Blair Cowan - their first collaboration since The Commotions' swansong 'Mainstream' in 1987. Unlike the well-known Commotions' sound, Guesswork favours electronic elements with modern keyboard, modular and drum synthesizers, however, you can still expect to hear Lloyd and Neil on the guitar.

On the strength of songs like 'Lost Weekend', 'Perfect Skin', 'Are You Ready To Be Heartbroken', 'Forest Fire', 'Jennifer She Said', 'No Blue Skies' and 'Like Lovers Do' - Lloyd Cole gained five Top 20 UK albums, appearances on the likes of ‘Later With Jools Holland’ and a strong connection with loyal fans worldwide.

PRAISE FOR FIRST SINGLE, 'VIOLINS'

"That's a completely extraordinary record... it's got that electronic sound like the best of Prefab Sprout or China Crisis, but very definitely 21st Century, a really fresh sound to it with dark, dark lyrics. Lloyd Cole is back at his very best."

Tom Robinson (BBC Radio 6)
