New-country and soul group The Delines, led by Willy Vlautin of Richmond Fontaine, are heading back out on tour in November.

Armed with their album Colfax which has already been cited as ‘album of the year’ plus some covers and new material the band is ready once again to take the UK by storm.

The Delines are vocalist Amy Boone (The Damnations TX), alongside the keyboard work of Jenny Conlee of The Decemberists (replaced by Cory Gray of the Dandy Wharhols for the UK tour) as well as Sean Oldham and songwriter/novelist Willy Vlautin (Richmond Fontaine).

Vlautin is no stranger to critical acclaim in the UK, enjoying cult success and stellar reviews in the past.

The seeds for Colfax were sown in 2012 when Vlautin, so beguiled by Boone’s heartbreakingly longing, yet resilient voice, wrote an album and built a band around her. Colfax tells haunting, modern stories through the musical lens of soul and roots music of decades past.

The band will be at the Ent Shed, Bedford, on Saturday, November 8, doors open at 7.45pm. Tickets, £12 in advance, £14 on the door, from www.wegottickets.com/event/287259
