Oakman Announce UK Headline Tour

French-based trio Oakman have shared details of their forthcoming UK tour, set to take place throughout July in support of their forthcoming album.

The band’s new LP, ‘Violent Oblivion’, will arrive May 03 via Rude Records and has already been heralded by singles ‘Missed Connections’, ‘Air Hunger’, ‘Proper Attitude’ and ‘I Wish Myself To Be Happier’.

Following the full album’s release, the band will be hitting the road across the UK, starting at Bristol’s The Crofters Rights on July 18 and concluding at Birmingham’s Subside Bar on July 28.

The newly-announced tour will follow a number of dates the band are set to play in France from the end of this month onwards.

Discussing the new album and its main themes, the band have shared: 

“‘Violent Oblivion’ is that violent break with the outside world, our own emotions, and the encounter with our traumas. 

“Through the songs, it represents the different mental states ‘Violent Oblivion’ can put us in. The powerful catchy melodies and lively instrumentals conceal deep and strong feelings, mental problems, excitement, fear and despair. 

“Getting out of this ‘Violent Oblivion’ is a big challenge, so we eventually hang on to find some hope and love to cope”.
