BC CAMPLIGHT announces a headline Dublin show for 2021

BC Camplight has announced he will make his highly anticipated return to Dublin, this time playing The Grand Social, 2nd May 2021. BC Camplight’s latest album ‘Shortly After Takeoff’ was released in April 2020, the album received stellar reviews from MOJO, Uncut and The Guardian and many more.

Fired by his ongoing battle with mental illness, Shortly After Takeoff is the final, and finest, a chapter of what Christinzio calls his “Manchester Trilogy”, following 2015’s “How To Die In The North” and 2018’s “Deportation Blues”.

All three albums were created after the native Philadelphian had moved to Manchester. Like Deportation Blues, Shortly After Takeoff spans singer-songwriter classicism, gnarly synth-pop and ‘50s rock’n’roll, with Christinzio’s similarly distinctive, flexible vocal carrying a fearless approach to lyrical introspection, but the new album is a major leap forward in songwriting sophistication and lyrical communication.

“It’s important to stress that this isn’t a redemption story,” he says. “I’m a guy who maybe lives a little hard and I’m in the thick of some heavy stuff. But as a result, I think I’ve made my best record.”
