Mess Esque are "Taking It Outside" in the UK and Europe this August and September.

Helen Franzmann (McKisko) and Mick Turner (Dirty Three, Tren Brothers) hit the road later this summer, with the main event at London’s Cafe OTO, a stop in Manchester’s Psych Fest and a string of shows around the Euro Zone with a Mr. Kurt Vile and his esteemed Violators. Australia's Mess Esque coalesce from ripples of Mick’s aquatic guitar moods and Helen’s dreamy vox and lyrical imagery, initiating pensive nights, full moons, low tides and empty landscapes to simmer with raw passion across the length and breadth of continental Europe.
