MAC DEMARCO - Releases Third Album 'This Old Dog' on May 5th, + Announces UK Shows

Mac DeMarco will be playing two solo shows in Europe – a Berlin date at Marie Antoinette on Friday February 24th and a London show at Nambucca on Wednesday March 1st. The shows were announced with an exclusive pre-sale for fan club members only and both sold out within seconds. Mac will also headline this year’s End Of The Road Festival which takes place in Larmer Tree Gardens from 31st August to 3rd September 2017.

Mac DeMarco (A.K.A. 26-year old MacBriare Samuel Lanyon DeMarco) will release This Old Dog, his third album and first full-length since 2014’s Salad Days, on May 5th 2017 worldwide via Captured Tracks. DeMarco recently shared its two lead singles – “My Old Man” and “This Old Dog.” They are the album’s openers and right off the bat, they show a new sonic direction and a glimpse into the very personal nature of this record.

It was a little space—in time, location (he moved from Queens to Los Angeles), and method—that inspired DeMarco while making This Old Dog. Arriving in California with a grip of demos he’d written in New York, he realized after a few months of setting up his new shop that the gap was giving him perspective. DeMarco says, “I demoed a full album, and as I was moving to the West Coast I thought I’d get to finishing it quickly. But then I realized that moving to a new city, and starting a new life takes time. Usually I just write, record, and put it out; no problem. But this time, I wrote them and they sat. When that happens, you really get to know the songs. It was a different vibe.”

Mac DeMarco will be performing two shows at London’s O2 Academy Brixton on Tuesday May 30th and Wednesday May 31st 2017. The show on May 30th sold out within 3 hours and there are limited seated tickets available for the 31st here. DeMarco has also added dates in Newcastle and Edinburgh on August 29th and 30th respectively, as well as a full North American tour. All live dates are as follows, with UK shows in bold:
