Anthonie Tonnon has released ‘Leave Love Out Of This’, the title track from his upcoming third album Leave Love Out Of This. A nationwide album release tour featuring a full band has also been announced.

Having more recently focussed on delivering thematic solo shows like A Synthesized Universe and his yearly Rail Land journeys, in September 2021 Tonnon embarks on an album release tour that expands his onstage line-up to include a full band for the first time since 2018. The band features Stuart Harwood on hybrid electric/acoustic drums, David Flyger on bass guitar/synthesised bass, Steph Brown (Lips) on synthesisers and samples, and Sam Taylor (Nadia Reid) on electric guitars and percussion.

Tonnon describes the show as, “A celebration and culmination of what we’ve developed through the album process, and through the A Synthesized Universe and Rail Land shows. Like the album, it will be a meeting place between organic and synthesised sound, but it will also be a very physical show. All the electronic drumbeats and sampled parts will have humans playing them on stage, on large surfaces, so we’re often playing with drumsticks and whole hands, rather than just fingers.”
