Public Library!

Huzzah! Our new album “Public Library” is being released on April 1, 2016 via BB*Island in Europe and Headless Owl in Canada. That beautiful album cover is by the amazing Jud Haynes. The seventh Burning Hell album is a collection of eight short stories drawn from different sections of the bookshelf of the brain. A murder mystery rubs shoulders with a biography, while a romance leans against a prison diary. There’s a killer priest, a nameless band lost in Yorkshire, and Elvis and Michael Jackson moonwalking their way into space and/or global annihilation. The words have never been wordier, the stories never stranger, and the band never louder, but the essence of The Burning Hell remains: life is not so bad, as long as you can laugh a bit and you have something decent to read. We’ll be hitting the road to play these new songs for you in April, May, and June first in Europe and the UK, then in Canada (Western Hemisphere dates coming soon). Thanks to Flux FM, Byte FM, Popfrontal and taz – die tageszeitung for presenting the tour. Below is a mostly-complete list of the gigs on the first leg of the tour, but stay tuned for more ticket links and more dates.

Maybe you should make a plan with your friends and family to come and see us – take a relaxing musical vacation! We hope to see you soon.
