Gruff Rhys

~ Honey All Over released as single, 23rd May

~ Includes new song Xenodocheionology

~ UK festival dates


Gruff Rhys continues his musical adventures with a new single and summer live dates that include several headline UK festivals performances.

The single will be comprised of Honey All Over and previously unreleased, brilliantly titled new song, Xenodocheionology. Sugar sweet Honey All Over is one of the many highlights of Gruff’s recently released, heartwarming solo album, Hotel Shampoo. The record was born out of Gruff actively embracing piano ballads and middle age in the wake of his fortieth birthday, as well as a personal quest for catharsis of a 15-year habit of acquiring wasteful complimentary hotel products whilst on tour. Heralded as Gruff’s most ambitious and fully realized album yet, Hotel Shampoo has also sparked an art installation, sold out UK tour with high-altitude Welsh surf-rock band Y Niwl, an all night siege of an entire Blackpool hotel and videos involving sharks and horses.

The word xenodocheionology describes a person’s love of hotels or inns – Gruff will hopefully be experiencing this condition during the dates listed overleaf. As well as gigs in Singapore, Australia, Malaysia and a nationwide US tour, Gruff will be headlining various UK festivals throughout the summer, including; Glastonbury’s Park Stage, Truck, Field Day, Green Man and End Of The Road.
