Tony Da Gatorra and Gruff Rhys
Tony Da Gatorra and Gruff Rhys have collaborated together on an album entitled ‘The Terror Of Cosmic Loneliness’.

Tony explains: “Hello, peace my brothers, this record was made with lots of feelings and true love to bring consciousness and show a little bit of truth that needs to be said without hypocrisy. We are creatures of God, so there’s no death. Spirit is light, all evil won’t prevail – there’s no evil when it crashes with goodwill.”

The ‘experimental’ record will be released on 26th July supported by a handful of shows, including Camp Bestival and Field Day:

July
29 Clwb Ifor Bach, Cardiff
30 Camp Bestival, Dorset
31 Field Day Festival, London
