Deaf Havana bring their UK tour to Manchester Academy in just two weeks, one of five UK dates they are headlining.

The tour follows the release in July of their latest album The Present Is A Foreign Land.

The Present Is A Foreign Land features the single Nevermind, a stripped back track showcasing a more vulnerable side of the now duo.

Speaking at the time of release of the single, James Veck-Gilodi said, “Nevermind is the second song we wrote for The Present is a Foreign Land and it is maybe my favourite on the record. This song is about the back end of 2019/first few months of 2020, which was pretty much the lowest point of my life to date. I tried to channel that emotion into the vocals when I recorded it. We tried to keep it simple on this with mainly keys, guitar and strings to really let the lyrics come through. This one means a hell of a lot to me so I really hope people connect with it!”

The Present Is A Foreign Land marked the band’s first album as a duo, featuring brothers James and Matty Veck-Gilodi.  It follows three top 10 albums in Rituals, All These Countless Nights and Old Souls.  In 2020 Deaf Havana were ready to go their separate ways after a decade together, but the pandemic forced them in to a sudden halt.  Despite deciding to call a day on the band, Matty continued to write songs, ultimately bringing him and brother James back together.  The two-piece decided to continue as Deaf Havana, working with producer Mike Horner on the album.
