Dry Cleaning Announce World Tour, Share New Single “Gary Ashby”

Ahead of their much-anticipated sophomore album Stumpwork (Oct. 21, 4AD), London-based four-piece Dry Cleaning have announced a global headlining tour and shared a new single, “Gary Ashby.”

Our third preview of Dry Cleaning’s latest after “Don’t Press Me” and “Anna Calls from the Arctic,” “Gary Ashby” is a propulsive jangle-pop tune that the band describes as “a lament about a pet tortoise, escaped as a result of family chaos,” recalling, “We wrote it in December 2020, one of the first new songs after the New Long Leg session.” “Have you seen Gary?” Florence Shaw frets over Tom Dowse’s alternately strident and shimmering guitars, her simple memories of the family pet suddenly covered in a new layer of poignance.

Dry Cleaning’s newly announced world tour dates in support of Stumpwork include a Dec. 1 show in Osaka, Japan, before kicking off in earnest at Montreal’s La Tulipe on Jan. 10, 2023. The 45-date (!) run traverses North America, the U.K. and the E.U., running through an April 1, 2023, show in Antwerp, Belgium. Tickets go on sale Wednesday, Sept. 14, at 10 a.m. local time, though fans on the band’s mailing list will have access to an early pre-sale on Friday, Sept. 9, at 3 p.m. ET.
