Tellison’s tour with Upset kicks off tomorrow in London

Tellison’s UK tour in association with Upset – a run of shows to celebrate the release the release of their new album, ‘Hope Fading Nightly’ – will kick off tomorrow (Friday 18th September) at London’s St. Pancras Church.

“We just wanted to be a band really – make records, go on tour,” frontman Stephen Davidson says in the new issue of Upset. “There was never any grander plan than that.”

Anyone pressing play on Tellison’s new album might worry that Stephen’s in need of a hug, as opener ‘Letter To The Team’ fades-in with an apology penned to his bandmates, past and present, “for the mess we’re in – this holding pattern of defeat, on defeat, on defeat.” It’s not as mopey as it might seem, though.

“I love black, ‘gallows’ humour,” says Stephen of the track. “I just thought it’d be a really dark but funny thing to do. And then my brain just kept going, like, ‘Imagine if this is the first song – he quits the band in the first song!’” he cackles.
