Asgeir Announces Shepherds Bush Empire Show On 26th November 2014

Following his sold out Union Chapel show next week (Tuesday 8th) Ásgeir has announced a Shepherds Bush Empire show on Wednesday 26th November.

Following the release of his widely acclaimed Top 40 debut 'In The Silence', Icelandic sensation Ásgeir has announced the release of not one, but two new singles.

'Going Home' - taken from the album and backed with a new song 'Dreaming' - will be released by One Little Indian as a single on 7th April, while another new song 'Here It Comes' will be made available on an exclusive 7" picture disc for Record Store Day on April 19th. Played out live in recent months, 'Here It Comes' ('his strongest yet' - Sunday Times) sees Ásgeir's song writing explore new and more complex territory - and comes backed with his version of Nirvana's 'Heart-Shaped Box' - originally performed in session for Dermot O'Leary's Radio2 show last November.

The past year has seen Ásgeir's extraordinary domestic popularity translate far beyond Iceland's shores. During that time serious inroads were made through Northern Europe, where by the end of last year he was comfortably selling out 1,500 capacity venues (the original Dyrd í dauðathogn album having been released in the Nordic countries back in February). More recently that success has been reflected in the UK and across the rest of Europe where anticipation for the release of the English-language version, 'In The Silence' built steadily, culminating in lead reviews and features in international titles such as The Sunday Times, The Guardian, Die Spiegel and Le Monde.

Ásgeir's first UK headline tour in December included a sold out show at the Bush Hall and the subsequent announcement of a Union Chapel show on April 8th - which has now also sold out. Meanwhile, 'In The Silence' was released in the USA via Columbia, 4th March.

Born and raised in the hamlet of Laugarbakki (population, 48) in the wilds of Iceland, Ásgeir comes from a large family of musicians. In 2012, at just 20 years of age, the release of Dyrd í dauðathogn made him an overnight sensation in Iceland breaking all records to become Iceland's fastest and biggest selling debut album by a home grown artist - outselling even (label mate) Björk and Sigur Rós' debuts. Staggeringly, one in ten of the Icelandic population now own the album.

Produced by Gudmundur Kristinn Jonsson, in Iceland the unusual poetry of Dyrd í dauðathogn has attracted almost as much attention as the music itself. Combining both electronic and organic elements with gossamer r'n'b production touches, the songs are light and vibrant, inset with his distinctively melancholic voice.

Live in the UK & Ireland in April:
Tuesday 8th April - London, Union Chapel (sold out)
Wednesday 9th April - Liverpool, East Village Arts Club
Friday 11th April - Dublin, Sugar Club
Saturday 12th April - Galway, Roisin Dubh
Sunday 13th April Manchester, Deaf Institute

Note: Ásgeir will not now be appearing at the Great Escape
