The tour announce comes on the back of their stunning eponymous debut album, released earlier this year to universal acclaim and described by The Big Issue as “one of 2017’s most intoxicating debuts.

Lead singer Greg Gonzalez had a clear vision for his band’s debut album, a gorgeously cinematic work which features singles “Apocalypse”, “K” and “Each Time You Fall In Love”. The album unspools like the most achingly romantic of movies: immersive, cohesive and transporting. Swooning in the spirit of influences such as Mazzy Star and Red House Painters, its sumptuous songs of love elevate Cigarettes to the ranks of those acts who create worlds of their own, exciting the most devoted kind of following.

Since their formation, Cigarettes After Sex have become a word-of-mouth phenomenon, generating millions of views on YouTube for their exquisitely yearning, graceful dream-pop. The band’s self-released debut single “Nothing’s Gonna Hurt You Baby” has now clocked up over 70 million streams, and was a soundtrack highlight in current TV favourite The Handmaid’s Tale with Music Junkee commenting “Cigarettes After Sex is the musical find of the series and it’s worth tracking down their self-titled album.

PRAISE FOR CIGARETTES AFTER SEX

“…genuinely well written songs…this album’s 47 languorous minutes feel, incongruously, too short”
Bernard Zuel

“Hypnotic Brooklyn based Cigarettes After Sex are moody as anything. Attend this show with your festival crush and the smooches will happen almost instantly.”
NME

“Beautiful melodies and classy songwriting shine through the billowing smoke and minimal lighting surrounding the quiet Texas pop-noir four-piece.”
The Guardian, live review, ★★★★

“For today’s caustic social landscape, they’re the perfect calm in the storm, marked by Gonzalez’s soothing, high melodies wrapped around ethereal guitars and reverb-wet percussion. Live, Cigarettes After Sex transform that subtlety into a trance-like hold.”
Paste Magazine

Surely one of the year’s finest!
Q, ★★★★
