Roots outfit Mipso open their European tour with three UK dates including Manchester’s The Castle, following the release of latest album Edges Run.

The album has received strong media praise from the likes of Pop Matters, Washington Post, American Songwriter and No Depression to name a few.  It also features latest single People Change.

The quartet recently released the animated video for People Change via AntiFragile.  The track showcases indie-Americana with otherworldly instrumentation.  Speaking about the track, frontman Jacob Sharp commented, “a lot of what I write is centred around articulating loss. My mother died when I was young and I’ve had a normal amount of romantic relationships end… People Change is a different angle on loss, that of a friendship fading away. In some ways it’s a lot more difficult to process, because the loss feels more within your control – the situation less futile – but the impact of the absence is pretty much the same.”  The video for People Change was created by Jake McBride.
