Laura Marling is to tour the US and a series of UK cathedrals throughout autumn as part of the promotional duties for upcoming third studio album ‘A Creature I Don’t Know’, due for release on September 12th.
The North American 9 stop tour leg will start in San Francisco on September 17 and end at the Big Apple’s Webster Hall on the 28th.
Entitled the When The Bell Tolls Tour, the UK dates will be launched with a gig at the Exeter Cathedral on October 14th, with shows in cities such as York, Manchester, Liverpool and London following before the final leg at the Birmingham Cathedral on October 29th.
‘A Creature I Don’t Know’ is the follow-up to last year’s highly praised second effort ‘I Speak Because I Can‘. The Mercury-nominated album cemented Marling’s reputation as one of the UK’s most gifted young songwriters, and also handed her mainstream recognition at the beginning of this year when she was given the Best British Female prize at the Brit Awards.
