Now Belle and Sebastian have announced the initial line-up. Most notably, it features Camera Obscura, who are making their return to performing live for the first time since the 2015 death of the band's Carey Lander from cancer. More

Another Dark Year Was Brightened By a Plethora of Fantastic Albums
