    KARL DENSON’S TINY UNIVERSE Announces THICK AS THIEVES FALL TOUR 2019

    Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe has announced ‘Thick As Thieves Fall Tour 2019.’ Hot off the heels of touring the U.S. this summer as the saxophonist in The Rolling Stones, Denson reconvenes KDTU for a 22-date stretch in October and November, mixing headline performances alongside several dates supporting Thievery Corporation. KDTU headlines shows in the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic before connecting with Thievery Corporation for performances in the Northeast and Midwest, including two nights in Canada. The two bands then conclude the run with appearances in Atlanta and throughout Florida. Tickets for all shows are on-sale now. 

    Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe is supporting its latest studio album, ‘Gnomes & Badgers’ (out now on Seven Spheres Records). The collection is Denson’s hard-grooving answer to these tragically divisive times. Distilling the sweeping stylistic range of KDTU’s concert performances into their own authentic sound, the inimitable Denson and his long-standing seven piece unit that includes guitarist DJ Williams, drummer Zak Najor, bassist Chris Stillwell, keyboardist David Veith, trumpeter Chris Littlefield and slide/lap steel guitarist Seth Freeman have delivered what is undoubtedly their strongest work yet. 

    The album’s first video and single, “Change My Way,” makes a poignant statement about the current crisis at the U.S. border. The clip was directed by TG Herrington—an award-winning director, writer and producer—whose work includes ‘The Free State of Jones,’ a series of music videos for Paul McCartney and the new feature-length documentary ‘A Tuba To Cuba.’ Denson co-wrote the song with New Orleans singer-songwriter Anders Osborne and co-produced the track with Adrian Quesada – Brownout, Spanish Gold.
