Kate Nash announces fall tour, shares “My Bile”

Kate Nash‘s fifth album and first for Kill Rock Stars, 9 Sad Symphonies, is out next month, and she’s shared another single from it, “My Bile.” “‘My Bile’ is about being at your wits’ end and having nothing left to give to society’s expectation of you, and I guess reassessing past behaviors and current priorities,” she says. “You know you’re on empty when you’re spewing up bile. I’ve realized I need more reserves for myself. I’m at a point in my life where I want to say ‘no’ to things and ‘no’ to people. And I’m in my mid 30’s, so if I don’t do that I end up with an injury or a migraine. At this point I’m confident that I’m a hardworking and compassionate person, so I trust my instincts when I want to tell someone to shut up or fuck off. I’ve also worked hard on biting my tongue, so if the instinct is there I allow myself to trust it. Whenever I regret something it’s usually because I didn’t listen to my instincts sooner. After all the shit and abhorrent behaviors I’ve seen over the years, I’ve realized that it does take a toll on your self-worth if you don’t have strict boundaries. Life throws surprises at you too, so you have to accept you can’t control all of it, but not everyone’s invited to my birthday party anymore. If I’ve got cake, I’m saving slices for the best, not for the masses.” Hear it below.

Kate has also announced a fall North American tour, with shows in October and November. She’ll be in NYC for a show at Racket on October 12. Tickets to all dates go on sale Friday, May 17 at 10 AM local, with various presales happening now. See all dates below.
