The Handsome Family

Celebrating their twenty years as a band, as well as the recent release of their 9th studio album, 'Wilderness', The Handsome Family kick off a UK headline tour in May.

Recorded at home in Albuquerque and at the Wilco Loft in Chicago, 'Wilderness' is a record that finds husband and wife duo Brett & Rennie Sparks blending Appalachian holler, psych-rock and Tin Pan Alley inspired melodies to conjure up a world where David Attenborough meets David Lynch in a Honky-Tonk bar at midnight.

The album explores the little-known enigmas of the natural world: immortal jellyfish, woodpecker tongues, dancing octopi, fly royalty, the secret language of crows, and mysterious ant spirals. Elsewhere we discover why the Sparks never take seaside vacations and learn all about compulsive window-smasher Mary Sweeney. It's classic Handsome Family territory - twisted tales of the unexpected that may raise a smile but will also, thanks to Rennie's knack for spinning a good yarn, leave you ever so slightly unsettled.
