John Grant: GMF + Pale Green Ghosts

Following a decade in The Czars, the Denver, Colorado band he co-founded, touring on his own and also taking a break from music, John Grant released his highly acclaimed debut solo album 'Queen of Denmark' in 2010; it was recorded in collaboration with Texas band Midlake in 2008 and 2009.

Relocating to Reykjavik, Iceland in 2011, he began working with Biggi Veira of Gus Gus on his second album 'Pale Green Ghosts' which dropped in March of this year.

His current European tour includes three shows in Iceland this week, three in Germany, Switzerland and Ireland in August, five in Norway and Spain in September, and four in the UK in October.
