Last September, (Sandy) Alex G released his new album, House of Sugar, to critical acclaim; the album and its tracks were included on several Best of the Year lists from American Songwriter, The FADER, Pitchfork, VICE, and more.

Today, he shares a new video for “Bad Man” directed by Zev Magasis (who previously directed videos for “Gretel” and “In My Arms”). It features an alternate version of the track, exclusive to the video. Watch below.


Having recently concluded a headlining US tour in 2019, which saw him sell out NYC’s Brooklyn Steel and LA’s Fonda Theatre, today Alex announces a spring 2020 North American tour. The North American dates, which include his first Coachella Festival performances, begin at the end of March following a previously announced UK and EU tour.

All tour dates are below; tickets for the Spring 2020 tour will be on-sale Friday, January 24 at 12pm local, on sandyalexg.com.
