(Sandy) Alex G announces 2020 US tour dates

on January 22, 2020, 2:10pm

(Sandy) Alex G has announced 2020 US tour dates. The trek will see him performing throughout the spring, starting in March and concluding in May. To break the news, he has also shared a new version of the House of Sugar song “Bad Man”.

The spring US tour will see (Sandy) Alex G performing in support of House of Sugar, his most recent record and one of the best albums of 2019. After returning from his European tour dates, the singer-songwriter will kick off his US tour in Cleveland, Ohio on March 30th and stay on the road until his final stop in Jacksonville, Florida on May 3rd. Along the way, he will perform at festivals Coachella and iii Points.

Lucky fans will get to hear this new alternate take of “Bad Man” live. In it, Alex G’s singing voice returns to its normal inflection and the glitching electronic beat is swapped for a country-like approach, all violins and quickly plucked mandolin solos. The song is as lost in thought as its previous version, but this new one sounds more like the album’s other singles —  “Southern Sky”“Greta”, and “Hope” for example — than the more digitalized back half of the record.

In the song’s music video, directed by Zev Magasis, two main narratives are interwoven in a back-and-forth compilation. One follows a group of pigeons fluttering around on the ground, seemingly overwhelmed by one another and their surroundings. Eventually they take off into flight and the camera follows a hawk as it soars into the sky. The other story, flashed intermittently throughout, follows a teenager as he exercises in a park and goes for a run. As he starts to run farther into the distance, the sun begins to set and a single light illuminates his face. Watch it below.
