Platinum selling, singer-songwriter and producer Blackbear has announced that he will bring his Dead 2 The World tour to the UK this October. Following the release of his fifth studio album Anonymous earlier this year, Blackbear will kick off his UK tour in Birmingham on 25th October, with shows in Glasgow and London before wrapping in Manchester on 30th October.

Since emerging in 2012, Blackbear has released alt-R&B albums Deadroses, Digital Druglord , and Cybersex, each extolling the pleasures of sex, drugs, and luxury consumerism. His streaming hits, the platinum-selling Idfc and the double-platinum Do Re Mi (“Do Re Mi, I’m so fucking done with you girl”), further established the 28-year-old.

On his new album Anonymous, Blackbear has discovered that the antidote to the pity party is vulnerability. “There were hints in my earlier albums of who I really was, but I had a wall up,” he says. “The wall’s been torn down for Anonymous. I’m calling it that because I want to take the ego out of the process. I wanted to make a human album, by a real person, not hide behind the character of this sad ‘Blackbear’ guy.”
