Julian Casablancas’ band The Voidz to play Birmingham show
Masterminded by The Strokes’ frontman Julian Casablancas, The Voidz return rejuvenated with their boldly adventurous new album ‘VIRTUE’.
It’s not often a Strokes member passes through these parts. We’ve been lucky enough to have Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond Jr. play at the Hare & Hounds a couple of years back – but now it’s the turn of the band’s frontman as Julian Casablancas brings his band The Voidz to Digbeth’s newest venue, The Mill.

Their first new album in nearly four years, The Voidz released VIRTUE earlier this year on Cult Records/RCA Records. Deemed “infectious” by Rolling Stone, the record has earned raves from the New York Times, SPIN, Billboard, and more, with Stereogum saying in an epic 10,000+ word review it’s “a truly riotous album…it holds back nothing,” and Vulture saying “it feels like a new beginning,” adding that VIRTUE is “inarguably [Julian Casablancas’] best album since… pick your favourite early Strokes album.”

26 – Vicar Street, Dublin
27 – The Mill, Birmingham
