DECLAN WELSH & The Decadent West have announced details of their biggest headline show to date at the iconic Glasgow Barrowlands.

The four-piece will play on 18th November.

Following on from playing the venue just two weeks ago in support of Twin Atlantic, and three sold-out headline shows at King Tuts, this latest announcement marks another milestone in their thrilling development.

They said on social media “We are so excited to announce that we will be headlining The Barras on November 18th. It’s a place that everyone who’s in a band in Scotland has on their bucket list and we are absolutely delighted that together (that’s us AND yous), we’ve went from playing Poetry Club in front of 100 folk, to this, either side of a pandemic. None of this would be possible without all of you, so I am eternally grateful to all the support yous have shown us.

“We promise you, we will make this the most special gig yet. Make sure and get your tickets asap, and we can all come together and absolutely go for it at this special venue.”

What’s more, the band have announced details of a new EP called ‘Impermanency’ on 4th July. We’ve already heard the title track, but we’ve been given a new preview called ‘Aw The Time’ – another big track that reflects their maturing sound and shift in direction.

Speaking about the track, Welsh stated: “As much as I’m starting to think that it’s good that what I mean in a song and what people take from a song can be totally different things, this to me is pretty obviously just about insomnia.I’ve always struggled sleeping and written nearly every tune between the hours of 12am-5am. It’s probably most reflective of that point where you just start to lose your mind a little bit through lack of sleep, and it actually becomes fun. For about 3 and a half minutes. Then it’s shite again.”

Tickets for the Barrowlands go on general sale on 27th May. A pre-sale will kick off on 25th May for those who sign up to the mailing list here.
