Villagers – Headline Shows in Ireland

Villagers have announced 4 headline shows in Ireland to co-incide with the release of the debut album, Becoming A Jackal, which is released by Domino in Ireland on 14 May.

Sporting a full band for the headline shows Villagers will play:
Wed 19 May Set Theatre, Kilkenny
Thurs 20 May Cyprus Avenue, Cork
Fri 21 May Roisin Dubh, Galway
Sun 23 May The Button Factory, Dublin (please note change of date – all tickets )

Villagers is the brainchild of Conor J. O'Brien, who has already toured Ireland, the UK and US and opened for Neil Young, Wild Beasts and Cass McCombs amongst others. Becoming a Jackal introduces us to Villagers’ vivid narratives, gripping poetry and melodic depth. Conor J. O’Brien’s clear and distinctive voice weaves a remarkable spell, delivering an album of rare, alarming beauty. From restrained to unleashed, from a whisper to a literal howl, Becoming a Jackal mutates, intrigues and beguiles in equal measure.
The lead single of the same name will be available on 7” from Record Store Day (17th April) and via digital download from 26th April. The accompanying, Ferry Gouw, directed video is available to watch here:
The full tracklisting for the Becoming A Jackal album is:
1 – I Saw the Dead

6 – That Day
7 – The Pact (I’ll be your Fever)
