The Austin-based Leopold and His Fiction have released a new album Darling Destroyer via ILA Music. To celebrate the release, the band have shared a new video for the album track 'Saturday'.
Frontman Daniel Leopold says: “Saturday (Darling Destroyer),” our albums Alma Mater, hit us like a ton of bricks. Heavy and slow. Scraped up by dredging the past with a clean net. Highly vacant in the servitude I owe to wiping my thoughts clear of abuse. I'm Finally human enough to keep an articulate mind and be willingly in public. The more I think about the past 5 years, I know I should have seen it coming. Darling Destroyer.”

Held on the 29th & 30th April 2017 at the O2 Academy & Attenborough Arts Centre - Leicester. Weekend tickets only £40 for adults, £30 for students and £20 for under 16s.
