KRISTIN HERSH

Fire Records & Kristin Hersh are thrilled to announce a new partnership that will first see the release of Kristin’s new album “Possible Dust Clouds” on October 5th 2018. Kristin first embarks on a solo tour in June across the UK that includes an appearance at Robert Smith’s Meltdown Festival at the South Bank and an additional London show at Cecil Sharp House along with dates in Bristol, Glasgow, Halifax, Newcastle, Cambridge, Brighton and two nights at Ramsgate’s Music Hall.

Support for Kristin on these dates will be friend and former Throwing Muses and Belly bass player Fred Abong, who will be touring his new solo acoustic EP. Fred was part of the band at the time that ‘The Real Ramona’ was recorded. This tour is a celebration of this long-standing friendship, as well as an expression of their appreciation of each other’s solo efforts.

“I’m thrilled to find some likeminded teammates in the shifting paradigm of the recording industry. Together, we can do a lot more damage than we could ever pull off alone, and damage is what’s called for when an old guard is falling. This is gonna be a swell party.” Kristin Hersh

“The prodigious output and commitment to quality is pretty staggering, but then Kristin Hersh is a very, very special musician.”The Quietus
