British songstress Louise Distras has announced that she is heading out on the road alongside The Red Paintings for their forthcoming UK tour.
With songs that tick both the post-punk and pop boxes, her explosive lyrics and riotous sonic disposition, Distras is already garnering comparisons to charged songstresses Brody Dalle, Juliette Lewis and Courtney Love.
The past three years have seen the singer and songwriter cutting her teeth across the UK, Europe, Canada and the USA with the likes of Billy Bragg, Buzzcocks, Stiff Little Fingers and The Damned, and taking in festival appearances at Glastonbury and Bearded Theory.
Following her critically acclaimed debut album Dreams from the Factory Floor, Distras and her band are now at work recording the follow-up, with producer Steve Whale and engineer Pat Collier on board.
Orchestral art rockers The Red Paintings are in the midst of an ambitious world tour in support of the release of their debut album, The Revolution Is Never Coming. They incorporate multimedia performance art wherever possible and seek submissions from local artists who paint the band’s live energy on-stage in real time. With costumes, conceptual stage shows, live painting and human canvases their performance combines sound and visuals to create an experience that stimulates the senses and minds of the audience.
The tour is sure to be a blast.
