After an incredible run of US tours with other luminaries such as The National, The Walkmen, Girls and Band of Horses, Pitchfork favourite Cass McCombs returns to the UK, Ireland and mainland Europe for some much anticipated live shows. The first tour since the release of McCombs’ fourth album, Catacombs, will kick off at the Lexington in London on the 30th November, followed by a show at Whelans in Dublin on December 3rd and dates in France, Holland, Belgium and Spain.

To coincide with the tour, Dreams Come True Girl will be released as a single on November 30th. Featuring the seductive voice of Hollywood legend Karen Black (of Easy Rider and Nashville fame), Dreams Come True is a beautifully charming, dreamlike song with a skiffle beat and haunting vocals.

‘[…] Dreams Come True Girl, [a] track whose directness stands tall above a set with inches to spare. Given a song like this (the chorus straight up kills me every time), and a staggering mind/skill set like McCombs', it's remarkable that he's avoided being part of the greater discussion on great American songwriters.’ - Pitchfork - 8.2 (Best New Music)
