Bat for Lashes announces shortest, saddest US tour

Bat for Lashes announces shortest, saddest US tour

Enchanted wood sprite Natasha Khan is coming to the West Coast this spring for a too-brief series of dates. This is the first time American fans will get to check out songs from last year’s critically acclaimed Bat for Lashes album, The Haunted Man, which got Khan a nomination for the Brit Award’s “Best Female Solo Artist” and wound up on pretty much everybody’s year-end best-of lists. But how few Yankee fans indeed will check out Bat for Lashes live this time!

San Francisco. Seattle. Portland. The Henry Miller Library in Big Sur, CA. You are the chosen ones. Fortunately the obsessives over at Consequence of Sound have given festival-goers and non-Pacific Northwest-dwellers hope that Bat for Lashes will be joining the Coachella lineup for the festival’s annual overheated roll in the hippie dust. Check out the video for “A Wall” from The Haunted Man below. It features Khan in her Mulholland Drive wig tangling with a sad fellow in a fuzzy suit. Don’t be sad, fuzzy suit dude! Maybe Bat for Lashes will play somewhere outside the West Coast soon.
