Ezra Furman heading to FoundryPosted by: Ashley Birch
The American singer-songwriter performs in Sheffield at the end of May
Ezra Furman is bringing his ‘new’ band The Visions to Sheffield’s Foundry Student’s Union on 30 May, in support of his new record Transangelic Exodus.
The album, described by the singer songwriter as a ‘a queer outlaw saga’, is the second release for label Bella Union. A new landmark for the American singer-songwriter, he says the album is ‘not a concept record, but almost a novel, or a cluster of stories on a theme, a combination of fiction and a half-true memoir.’
Ezra made three albums with his band The Harpoons, then a crowdfunded solo record before he released Day of the Dog in late 2013 and followed it up with critically acclaimed record Perpetual Motion People in 2015 – both made with his band The Boyfriends.
Selling out London’s Roundhouse in 2016, performing on Jools Holland and playing Coachella in 2017 has established them as a popular live act. Support at Foundry will be provided by Porridge Radio and tickets are available through the Foundry’s website, priced at £19.25
