Following the release of the rapturously received ‘Welcome Back to Milk’, DU BLONDE (Beth Jeans Houghton) has lined up a series of shows with Future Islands and Torres this September.
As well as playing End Of The Road and other festival spots still to come later this year, Du Blonde will support Torres at the Scala and Future Islands across the UK this September. The shows planned with the latter artist, will see Du Blonde reunite with singer Samuel T Herring once again, after the pair collaborated on ‘Welcome Back To Milk’ track ‘Mind Is On My Mind’.

The shows will follow on from Du Blonde’s three night residency at the Shacklewell Arms (the last of which is tonight (3rd August)), a jaunt inspired by her heroes of the late 60s at the Whiskey A Go Go on Sunset Strip. Each night has featured hand-picked DJs, supports and other entertainment. The dates have all been free to get in and can be can be reserved from https://dice.fm/artists/du-blonde
The new video for current single ‘Hunter’ was also recently revealed. Directed by Du Blonde, it was entirely shot in LA: “The footage was shot on Super 8 by Kelsey McNamee. We wanted to try and get footage like the old home movies our families had when we were younger. So often footage like this is forsaken for videos shot on phones and the quality of those old memories is lost. We wanted to have something to show our kids.”.
