For those bothered by the lack of political content in music these days, a voice has stepped from the woods to take up the mantle. That voice is Morrissey.
All was not quiet on the Western front last night, after Morrissey allegedly threatened to cancel a show in Santa Ana, California, at the Observatory. And the demands impacted two other bands playing at the same venue, PAWS and We Are Scientists.
Decades and decades on, three things are still certain: death, taxes and long, interesting Morrissey song titles. The 12-song album will be released in July.
Morrissey has given us more than his fair share of gobsmacking, WTF titles over the years. And his latest will definitely get people talking once again.
The singer’s tour news follows the recent announcement that he’d signed a two-album deal with the Capitol/Harvest label, and that fans can expect a new full-length later on this year.
“You think you know depression, grimness and self-loathing?” Anselmo said. “Listen to Morrissey!”
The upcoming album will be the tenth of Morrissey’s solo career, following 2009 full-length ‘Years of Refusal.’
