Presented by Handsome Tours

Handsome Tours is proud to present the debut tour of ambient pop band Cigarettes After Sex!

Front man Greg Gonzalez had a clear vision for his band’ s debut album, a gorgeously cinematic work released via Partisan Records on June 9th, 2017. After the phenomenal online break-out success of 2015’ s reverberant beauty ‘ Nothing’ s Gonna Hurt You Baby’ from the early Cigarettes EP (‘ I.’ ) from 2012, the Brooklyn transplant (originally from El Paso) wanted to project his worldview on to a bigger screen, a broader canvas.

Although Cigarettes seemed to spark into life over one breakthrough weekend in 2015, Gonzalez ignited the project in 2008. Early iterations nodded to 1980s-vintage New Order, Erasure and Madonna, before Gonzalez harkened back to darker influences such as Joy Division for a band makeover. A commitment to confessional, sexualised lyrics stuck early; Leonard Cohen’ s ‘ Chelsea Hotel No 2’ numbered among Greg’ s reference points. Meanwhile, an amorphous band line-up began to solidify as keyboardist Phillip Tubbs became more of a permanent member.
