Hercules and the Love Affair come to the intimate setting of The Faversham to celebrate the release of their new album Blue Songs.
Famed for their avant garde live shows, the band is a fusion of artists from eclectic backgrounds all of whom bring different influences and musical styles to the mix. Since the bands first release in 2008 for DFA records they are darlings of Pitchfork, Fact Magazine and the NME, taking the music world by storm with their mismatched style and even wilder musical tastes.
Receiving rave review across the board Blue Songs, is a deeper, less brassy take on the band fuelled by band leaders Andy Butlers obsession with '86-'94 house, loosing non of the tears and mascara diva-ishness of their debut, make sure you don't miss the opportunity to catch them live.
