Matthew Houck aka Phosphorescent has announced his first European headline tour in four years with UK shows in Dublin, Liverpool, Leeds and London at Shepherd's Bush Empire in October 2018. His last appearance in the UK took place around his 2013 studio album Muchacho which included his breakthrough track 'Song For Zula' and received to widespread praise from fans and critics alike including an 8.8 'Best New Music' from Pitchfork, #11 in Mojo's end of year list and acclaim from publications across the board.
Houck has rounded up the full Phosphorescent band and is itching to get back on stage with the promise of new music coming soon.
Praise for Muchacho
"Phosphorescent has followed 2010's country-rock homage Here's To Taking It Easy with an equally magnificent beast"
"Houck embraces his inner Eno"
"A beautiful outing in hauntingly, pastoral heartbreak. Impressive."
"Matthew Houck is a gutsy, one man band who, when he wants to, can imitate a choir of heartbroken angels"
"A thing of rare beauty"
4.5/5 The Sun
"Houck drifts in from heartache's high plains with some magisterial material"
4/5 The Independent
"Shimmers of sheer magic"
4/5 Daily Telegraph
"On Muchacho, Houck gathers together everything he's attempted-- beery, rollicking country-rock, haunted tribal hymnals, regret-soaked bar room heartbreak-- and fashions it into something close to a defining statement"
"Throughout, Houck solidifies his standing as one of the most remarkable voices around"
