Villagers has announced a new album.

Ten-track record ‘Fever Dreams’ is set for release on 20th August, accompanied by a bunch of tour dates that kick off in October and include a night at the Roundhouse in London.

“I had an urge to write something that was as generous to the listener as it was to myself,” Conor O’Brien explains. “Sometimes the most delirious states can produce the most ecstatic, euphoric and escapist dreams.”
