O Emperor have announced a three date tour for December, taking in Cork, Waterford & a gig at The Button Factory on Saturday December 17th.
After a hugely successful headline tour last April, O Emperor will return for a select three-date tour in December- their final appearances of 2011.
The shows in Cork, Dublin and Waterford will see the band premiere much of their brand new material, as well as highlights from their highly successful debut Hither Thither, which was released in October 2010, and was subsequently nominated for the Choice Music Prize (Irish Album of the Year).
Following the release of their album and a special orchestral arrangement of the song Sedalia (performed and filmed live with the RTE Concert Orchestra), the band have toured extensively both at home and abroad throughout 2011, including an appearance at the prestigious SXSW showcase festival in Austin, Texas.
The band are currently working on material for their much anticipated second album and a European release of Hither Thither is scheduled for early next year.
