British singer-songwriter Benjamin Francis Leftwich has announced a new headline tour for North America. Taking in 26 dates throughout November and December, the Fall tour follows his recent sell out run across North America and will come shortly after the release of his highly anticipated second album After The Rain - out August 19th through Dirty Hit / Vagrant. Following the release of his 2011 acclaimed debut album Last Smoke Before the Snowstorm, a record which has gone on to sell over 100,000 copies worldwide and had over 150 million global Spotify plays, Leftwich’s life was thrown into an unexpected path when he went through one of the hardest things in life, the loss of a parent and his number one source of inspiration, his father. Coming at the peak of Ben’s success and stuck between tours and caring for his father, Ben invited producers to his hometown in an attempt to work on new material, to muted results. “I just knew that I needed to not do this for a while,” he admits of his mental state following his father’s passing. “For me, I just needed to live outside of music. ”Now, 5 years after the release of his debut album, Leftwich returned earlier this year with the news of the Charlie Andrew (Alt-J, Money) produced new album. Written during those months which saw him at his lowest, the record is a creation that exists between light and dark; one that is delicate yet grand, melancholic yet optimistic, whilst remaining utterly timeless.
