About Cigarettes After Sex
Cigarettes After Sex are set to tour across the UK and Europe in March and April 2020, including a stop at London’s Hammersmith Apollo. The spring dates follow a global headline tour this autumn, that includes UK shows at Albert Hall, Manchester and an already sold out Shepherds Bush Empire the following night.
Cigarettes After Sex release their second album Cry on 25 October via Partisan Records. Recorded during night time sessions in a mansion on the Spanish island of Mallorca, the album is a lush, cinematic meditation on the many complex facets of love - meeting, wanting, needing, losing… sometimes all at once.
After decamping to Mallorca the same week that their self-titled minimalist pop masterwork debut was released in 2017, Gonzalez and his bandmates – Jacob Tomsky (drums) & Randy Miller (bass) – consciously let the striking location guide the initial Cry sessions.
While the music came quickly – often improvised on the spot – it would be another two years before Gonzalez would attempt to complete the accompanying lyrics. Helped by the burgeoning love of a new relationship, the influence of films by Éric Rohmer, and the songs of Selena and Shania Twain among others, Cry blends the carnal subtlety of their debut with a warmer palette.
Cigarettes After Sex’s self-titled debut has sold over 550k records to date (streaming equivalent), amassing over 360 million Spotify streams, 2.2 million monthly listeners, and 350 million YouTube streams.
