As Dublin band The Pale set about marking 30 years in the business in 2020, and the recent release of thirteenth album Merciful Hour they head back to the UK for a handful of dates – their first in years.
The dates follow on from touring in Ireland, and an appearance at Electric Picnic, to bring the music of a band best known for singles ‘Dogs With No Tails’ and ‘Butterfly’ but who have a deep back catalogue packed with songs skipping effortlessly between styles and genres while retaining a strong lyrical focus.
Their latest release – 2019 album Merciful Hour – was named as a top 10 album of the year by the Irish Mail and shows a band still free of the constraints of genre but with a distinctive sound of their own.

Matthew Devereux, said: “The Pale are delighted to be touring in the United Kingdom again, it really has been way too long. We have made a new album that we are very proud of and this gives us the perfect excuse to try and get it heard by as many new ears as possible. We learned everything we needed to know about live performance touring the UK in the early nineties and we cannot wait to get back into the fray.”
