on Divine Comedy Records
Sunday 26th February 2017
Dublin’s Bord Gáis Energy Theatre


 The Divine Comedy also play three London Palladium Shows in February and Neil will perform a guest spot at the REPEAL (a night in the key of 8) show at The Olympia Theatre, Dublin on Sunday 23rd April

“Sumptuous, orchestral pop laced with lyrical acerbity” Uncut 7/10
“Foreverland truly excels.” Q 4*

“Funny, learned and poignant by turns, Foreverland is a masterfully-arranged, part-chamber-pop record underpinned by Hannon’s natural playfulness.”
Mojo 4*, Top 50 Albums of the Year

After a run of sold out acclaimed shows in 2016, The Divine Comedy release their latest single, ‘To The Rescue’ in the run up to their Grand Canal Theatre show on 26th February. To The Rescue is the third single from the Choice Music prize nominated Foeverland album (woo hoo!).

To The Rescue is a miniature baroque masterpiece that Gainsbourg himself would have been proud of and’ has been hailed by fans and press as one of Hannon’s most beautiful and affecting compositions to date. The accompanying video was directed by Raphaël Neal and filmed on the band’s tour of France in 2016.

The critically acclaimed new album ‘Foreverland’ debuted at 7 in the Top Ten, has seen its singles be playlisted at Radio 2 and BBC 6Music and also seen Neil and co grace the last series of Jools Holland. The Divine Comedy are set to head out on 5 further UK & Ireland dates next month (including three shows at London’s Palladium) and are headlining the Deer Shed and Cropredy festivals in the summer with more festival appearances to be announced.
