The L.A.-based alt-pop artist is set to commence her run of shows in Belgium on September 16 before later dates in London, Manchester and Glasgow.

Last week, she announced her forthcoming ‘Kissing Death’ album via the deeply personal single ‘Doomed’, which bravely explores the abuse the artist experienced when she was younger.

‘Kissing Death’ is set to arrive on August 23 via the singer-songwriter’s own Heavy Heart Records imprint, partnering with Rise Records, giving fans plenty of time to devour the record before she heads out on tour.

Tickets for the newly-announced tour are on-sale from Friday, April 05 – visit the artist’s site for more information and to buy tickets.

‘Kissing Death’ is said to be a visual album that will tell an immersive story across its 12 tracks, with the accompanying music videos weaving into each other.

Speaking about the forthcoming LP’s main themes and the music videos, the artist has shared:

“I decided to make Death a love interest in a dark rom-com-style tale.

“Throughout the visuals, I’m seen in a therapist’s office explaining this complicated relationship as if describing a scorned lover. 

“The music videos will be like ‘flashbacks’ of what I’m telling my therapist. On the first single “DOOMED,” we go back in time to an angsty teenage version of me.

“This is my first brush with the Grim Reaper and I doodle pictures of him in my diary surrounded by hearts. Flash forward, I’m shown performing at a dive bar, clubbing, engulfed in self-destruction. 

“He stalks me, and eventually even proposes marriage, and I leave him at the altar and run away. It ends with me and Death in couples therapy. I wanted the music to feel cinematic, like the soundtrack of a movie.”
