Morrissey has revealed a full US tour in support of his new studio album ‘Low in High School’ (out November 17 on Etienne/BMG). Backed by his full live band, each performance promises to be an intimate evening with Morrissey where he will perform many of his beloved classics as well as new material from ‘Low in High School,’ including lead single “Spent The Day In Bed.” Additionally, on October 20th, a special five LP box set deluxe version of The Smiths’ ‘The Queen is Dead’ will be released to celebrate what is perhaps the band’s most iconic album.
The tour will make a stop at Vina Robles Amphitheatre on Sunday, November 5. Full itinerary on Morrissey’s official Facebook page: Facebook.com/Morrissey
“Spent The Day In Bed” has been called an ode to self-care by The AV Club and received plaudits from Rolling Stone, NPR Music, and Billboard, while Stereogum lauded its “slickly theatrical” imagery.
Recognized as one of the most influential artists of all time, Morrissey is widely credited as a seminal figure in the emergence of indie rock and Britpop, and his music acts as a rite of passage for all who discover alternative music. His lyrics, at times blunt and fearless, other times vulnerable and poignant, continue to resonate with listeners around the world with their unmatched emotional depth and theatrical, poetic delivery. After The Smiths, Morrissey achieved greater success as a prolific solo artist. All 10 of his solo albums have entered the Top 10 on the UK album charts, including three entries at No. 1. In 2013, Morrissey published his record-breaking autobiography on Penguin Classics, immediately topping the best-seller list with literary reviewers hailing it a masterpiece in writing and prose. Pitchfork called him “one of the most singular figures in Western popular culture,” and the UK’s Independent declared, “Most pop stars have to be dead before they reach the iconic status he has reached in his lifetime.”
