DECLAN WELSH & THE DECADENT WEST have announced a fresh run of UK dates for Winter 2019. With their debut album ‘Cheaply Bought, Expensively Sold’ now in sight (out 18 October 2019 via Modern Sky UK), the four-piece will be piggy-backing its release with a 15 date tour immediately after.
Kicking off, in every sense, on the 31st of October (or 'Brexit Day’ in case it had slipped your mind…), the Glaswegian band will be taking their politically charged indie-punk to the irate masses in a run of shows that will stretch across Scotland, England and Wales.

Following a year of sold out shows across the UK and performances as diverse as those in Palestine (as part of a Glaswegian cultural exchange), The Great Escape , Reeperbahn, London Fashion Week, and their electrifying Billy Bragg -approved appearance at Glastonbury 2019; The Decadent West have solidified themselves as one of Scotland’s most promising talents and an unmissable live prospect.
In the lead-up to their new album, the Declan & Co. have whet appetites with recent single: ’No Fun’, a sardonic swipe at the scenester culture found to be lingering in Scottish flat parties, and, well everywhere for that matter.
Sharp of wit, dry of humour, and charged with Declan’s expertly acerbic lyricisms, the tracks sets the tone for what is surely one of 2019’s most anticipated debuts.
