FM4 Indiekiste mit Jose Gonzalez with The String Theory
Support: Hanna Leess
In January, 2017, José González and the maverick orchestra The String Theory embark on their second collaborative European tour since their thunderous 2011 success with sold-out shows all over the continent and raving reviews in The Independent, El País, Dagens Nyheter and Hamburger Abendblatt.
Since the release of his third solo album, ”Vestiges & Claws” in February, 2015, José González has been busy touring and selling out venues in Europe, North America, South America, Australia & New Zealand; including The Opera House in Sydney (twice!), Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles (twice!), The Beacon Theatre in New York and The Cirkus in Stockholm.
Even if Vestiges & Claws in a way is a comeback album, González has been far from idle in the seven years since the release of his second solo record, In Our Nature (his debut ”Veneer” was released in 2003 and has to date sold over a million copies).
Besides making two Junip albums and touring the world both solo and with the band, and with The String Theory in Europe in 2011, González has been involved in the soundtrack for the The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty, he has contributed a brilliant version of ”This is How We Walk On The Moon” for the Red Hot + Arthur Russell charity compilation. His solo version of the Junip track ”Far Away” won “Best Song in A Game” at the Spike Video Awards and Rolling Stone named Junip’s “In Every Direction” a Top 50 single of 2010.
