Billy Bragg Tour Launches at SXSW

Singer/songwriter and anti-folk hero Billy Bragg is coming back to the US for his first tour in two years.

Bragg will be touring in support of Yep Roc’s reissue of his early back-catalog titles and a massive, nine-disc box set (including two DVDs), aptly titled Volume 1. The albums will be available individually and in the box set, while the latter includes an unprecedented 48-page full-color book.

Bragg also plans to touch down in Austin as both a speaker and performer at this year’s SXSW festival.
