Following a UK tour which included two sold out, exceptional shows at London’s Milton Court at The Barbican, King Creosote can announce another UK tour for January and February 2015. The dates will include an extra night at London’s Union Chapel on 2nd February 2015; the 3rd February show is now sold out. These will be standard King Creosote shows (with no film screening). Tickets will go on sale this Thursday.

King Creosote has also been confirmed to play The Royal Concert Hall on Thursday 22nd January as part of Celtic Connections. As with the Milton Court shows, Kenny will be performing the music from ‘From Scotland With Love’ live to a screening of the film, this time augmented by a ten-piece band for what promises to be a very special night. This will also be the last chance for some time to see the film accompanied by a live performance.

Tickets go on sale on Thursday 16th October at 10am, except for Celtic Connections (which is on sale now) and Belfast (which is on sale on Friday). Full dates with ticket links are as follows:

From Scotland With Love, which critics described as ‘a lovingly crafted thing’ (Independent on Sunday), ‘consistently superb’ (Loud & Quiet – 9/10) and ‘a beautiful thing, flitting between affecting, inspiring, amusing and enchanting’ (Time Out – 4* lead review), was created in collaboration with director Virginia Heath and Producer Grant Keir as an audio-accompaniment to a poetic documentary film of the same name. Featuring archive footage from the National Library of Scotland Scottish Screen Archive, but no narration or interview, the film works around themes of love and loss, war, resistance, emigration, work and play, and is driven as much by the music as it is the images. For the first time King Creosote found himself being able to write from other people’s perspectives. The result is From Scotland With Love, one of King Creosote’s most widescreen cinematic and finest pieces of work to date. From Scotland With Love is available now through Dom Mart, and iTunes, with an extended version available HERE.

Watch the videos for Something To Believe In’ and ‘For One Night Only’, featuring footage from the film ‘From Scotland With Love’.
