Kurt Vile’s latest LP ‘Smoke Ring For My Halo’ has gone down a storm with fans and music critics alike. Intensely personal and full of beauty, it’s a record that looks set to make the end of year ‘Best Album’ lists. Kurt and his band The Violators are now embarking on a UK tour to promote the new material, including a date at Manchester’s Sound Control supported by the brilliant Woods. They will also pitch up at the ‘End of the Road’ festival on Dorset which has a truly excellent line up of bands.

If that isn’t enough good news the official video for ‘Jesus Fever’ can seen by following this link http://youtu.be/F1VmLdZvUlo
