Sweet Billy Pilgrim in UK tour
September shows to support 4th album Motorcade Amnesiacs
Sweet Billy Pilgrim have announced an 11-date UK tour in September.
The shows are in support of fourth album Motorcade Amnesiacs, which was released last month via Kscope.
Frontman Tim Elsenburg recently revealed the title was inspired by the assassination of US President John F Kennedy in 1963. He said: “I wanted to find a symbolic moment in history when it felt like innocence was lost and something ugly and hopeless started to creep in.
“I thought of JFK – as we followed that motorcade through the streets of Dallas, in post gunshot-shock, maybe we forgot how to hope for something better, just a little.”
