After selling out Manchester Academy on his upcoming UK tour, Miles Kane has now added a second Manchester gig to the run of dates.
The tour is set to follow the release of his first solo album in five years, Coup De Grace, which is due for release in August.
Coup De Grace was recorded in LA and produced by John Congleton. The album features Loaded, written by Miles, Lana Del Rey and Jamie T and new single Cry On My Guitar.
The announcement of the second Manchester Academy gig comes as Miles releases the video for Cry On My Guitar. Speaking about the video, directed by Brook Linder, Miles commented, “I loved every minute making this video with my good friend and wrestling hero Finn Bálor and directing genius Brook Linder. I felt like I was in a bond movie! Cry on my Guitar is the prequel to my video Loaded, I always wanted to make videos that told a story, like a mini-series or movie.”
“The very moment I met Miles Kane I wanted to see him thrown through a wall”
Director Brook Linder added, “The very moment I met Miles Kane I wanted to see him thrown through a wall. We wanted to have a crack at a Bond film – no easy task. I knew he could do it. Finn’s talent and skill set the bar extremely high, and Miles was up for the challenge. There’s something really honest and almost vulnerable about Miles. You can hear it on the album and you can feel it being around him – there’s a real intensity to his natural state. Just flip on the camera and it’s right there.”
Miles Kane will be signing copies of his album at HMV Manchester on 14 August from 6pm.
