**** “Dense and intense, the new record from cult hero Amanda Palmer is loaded with the drama of real life.” – NME
***** "Painfully raw, wickedly naughty, deeply moving and disconcertingly honest." - Adelaide Advertiser
Palmer’s third solo LP, There Will Be No Intermission is 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.
Somber yet exultant, There Will Be No Intermission presents still more dimensions to Amanda Palmer’s already voluminous talent, once again confirming her as a master songwriter at the height of considerable power. This one-of-a-kind artist has miraculously moulded humour, tears, confession, and naked personal pain into a matchless piece of work that could very well have been morose and gloomy but is, instead, deeply relatable, healing and inspiring.
The touring show itself will feature Palmer on solo piano and ukulele, with no band accompaniment; a night of graphic, honest, and funny storytelling with songs that Palmer claims will be her “most human and vulnerable stage-show to date.”
