Ezra pounds a nihilistic beat to Preston

Fiery young rocker Ezra Furman brings second solo album ‘Day Of The Dog’ to Preston next month.

Sounding equal parts Bruce Springsteen and Frank Black, Furman – who also fronts Ezra Furman and The Harpoons – bellows an unedited inner monologue in a serrated howl until spit flies and neck muscles bulge.

Furman’s exasperated nihilism has earned the US rocker a dedicated following both at home and in the UK .

Expect a set of blistering intensity, churning guitars, screaming and sundry such business.

Fresh off the back of a February tour that has seen Furman playing to larger and larger crowds, all the while picking up frequent plays on BBC 6Music, this whirlwind of talent will brings his electric show to the 53 Degrees stage on Sunday May 11.

South London trio Happyness support, playing ‘American-influenced college rock.
