The Good, The Bad and The Queen arrive at Sheffield’s Octagon this spring

Damon Albarn has announced his band, The Good, The Bad and The Queen, will come to Sheffield’s Octagon Centre this spring, as part of an extended UK tour.

 

The Blur and Gorrillaz frontman, along with former Clash bassist Paul Simonon, are touring the bands critically-acclaimed second album Merrie Land, and will now hit Sheffield on 15 April.

 

 

The new album was released in November 2018, following an eleven-year hiatus since their eponymous debut and is self-released on the newly created label Studio 13.

 

Produced by the legendary Tony Visconti and the band themselves, Merrie Land contains 10 new songs - written during the current period in which the UK is preparing to leave the European Union - creating a reluctant good-bye letter, a series of observations and reflections on Britishness in 2018.
