Justin Currie Acoustic Tour
Justin Currie, the former lead singer of Scottish pop-rock band Del Amitri, has announced a series of dates for his acoustic U.S. tour beginning in June in support of his upcoming Ryko release and second solo album, The Great War, out May 4, 2010.
The release follows on the heels of his 2007 critically acclaimed solo debut, What Is Love For. Currie returns on The Great War with a twist of haunting and mysterious lyrics combined with infectious melodies. His ever-present genius for combining dark, moody lyrical themes balanced with newfound optimism is heard throughout The Great War.
"If I have a mission as an artist," says Currie, "it would be to get a little more poetry into the great warehouse of rock music. All I can do is get it out there and fight to be heard; that's the great war."
