Hozier is making a UK live return this summer with his first tour here in four years.
The singer-songwriter will perform headline shows across the UK including four major outdoor shows Glasgow Queens Park on 25th June, Manchester Castlefield Bowl on 5th July, Cardiff Castle on 6th July and London Alexandra Palace Park on 21st July.
The news coincides with the release of Hozier’s new EP ‘Eat Your Young’, which includes three new songs – the title track, ‘All Things End’ and ‘Through Me (The Flood)’. Hozier is set to release his third album ‘Unreal Unearth’ later this year.
The singer broke through with his single ‘Take Me To Church’ and his self-titled debut album landed at number 2 on the Billboard 200. The follow up ‘Wasteland, Baby!’ was released to massive critical acclaim in March 2019, entering the US Billboard Top 200 Chart at number 1.
Last year Hozier teamed up with ‘God of War: Ragnarok’s composer, Bear McCreary to write the song ‘Blood Upon The Snow’, which was featured in the soundtrack for the game. The same year he also released ‘Swan Upon Leda’, in a statement shared alongside the release, the star explained that he was sharing the track as a way of showing “solidarity” with those fighting for reproductive rights.
