After the return of Martin John Henry, more good news. After a quiet spell Malcolm Middleton is returning to live action as … Malcolm Middleton!

After a year plus of performing as Human Don’t Be Angry, Malcolm is returning to his solo guise for a winter tour in December when he’ll be performing solo songs both old and new. HDBA however hasn’t been forgotten and Malcolm will also play a support set under that name previewing songs from the forthcoming release on Chemikal ‘Midnight Noodles’.

The shows, which include dates in Edinburgh (Electric Circus, 14th) and Glasgow (Oran Mor, 15th) will also be the place to get two limited edition Middleton releases, a compilation of rare solo material ‘A Quarter Past Shite’ and also the HDBA bootleg, ‘Live In Leeds’.

There’s a great press release on the whole endeavour here which essentially makes any further words from me redundant.
