In the official page, the group reveals that the new tour starts in October and will go through Portugal with three concerts: on November 7 in the Aula Magna, in Lisbon, on the 8th at the Gil Vicente Academic Theater in Coimbra, and on the 9th in the Theatro Circo de Braga.
"Office Politics," to be edited on June 7, "is an album of this time," with songs about a world in which progress seems to no longer serve the interests of those who dwell in it, is read on the official page of group, adding that the new songs are populated with synthesizers and instrumental machinery associated with pop.
One of the songs on the new album is titled "Dark Days Are Here Again," and began drawing on the day the band's lead singer and lead singer Neil Hannon awoke to the news that Donald Trump had been elected president of U.S.
"We were on a tour in France and the sky was an apocalyptic metallic gray. Not only did it feel like it was the end of the world, it looked like the end of the world," says the musician.
The last time the group was in Portugal was in 2017, when the album "Foreverland" came out.
Divine Comedy, which subsists around the main figure, Neil Hannon, emerged 30 years ago in 1989, having edited the debut album the following year, "Fanfare for the comic muse."
