To support THERE WILL BE NO INTERMISSION, Palmer will hit the road for a seated theater tour beginning in North America in early 2019 and continuing globally into 2020. The shows will feature Palmerperforming solo on grand piano, making it her first official tour ever with no back up musicians. Unironically, there will be an intermission at every show.
Palmer’s third solo LP, THERE WILL BE NO INTERMISSIONis the multi-faceted artist’s most powerful and personal collection to date, with songs that tackle the big questions: life, death, grief and how we make sense with it all. While the themes may be dark, the album’s overall sonic and lyrical mood is one of triumph in the face of life’s most ineffably shitty circumstances.
“Most of these songs were exercises in survival,” says Palmer. “This isn’t really the record that I was planning to make. But loss and death kept happening in real-time, and these songs became my therapeutic arsenal of tools for making sense of it all.”
