Send in the clowns! "Harlequinade", the new single from Eugene McGuinness, will be available via digital download on 6th August - the same date as his much anticipated new album, The Invitation To The Voyage. A strutting synthetic surge, Harlequinade is a folk tale of drug-fuelled cross-dressing and clown-costumed debauchery with a soaringly anthemic chorus and wordless sing-a-longs. The accompanying performance video was filmed in London by The Marshall Darlings and is available to watch here:

Eugene can also announce a four date London specific tour entitled 'The Invitation Tour', with shows in north (Proud Galleries), south (Corsica Studios), east (Birthdays) & west (Notting Hill Arts Club) London this August, as highlighted below.
