If you missed Marissa Nadler's recent tour of the UK in support of her latest album July, this photo tour diary is about to make you feel really crappy. In fact, that pain shouldn't just be felt by us Brits, as this photo journal covers the likes of San Diego, Los Angeles and a number of extremely lucky places in Europe.

Check out the beautiful photos below and read our thoughts on July by heading here.

  • Recent pen and ink drawing. I've definitely been trying to draw a lot on the road!

  • Photo of me getting ready for a European tour in my house.

  • This was taken on tour at The Church on York, a fantastic new venue in LA. Here is a dear friend of mine, songwriter Sophia Knapp, playing songs.. She's on Drag City

  • This is a picture of Janel Leppin, my bandmate. She's an incredible cello player and vocalist and a kickass songwriter. She's been joining me on all of my dates and I'm lucky to have her. This was a rare day off in San Diego.

  • Here, me and Guy Blakelee are hanging out in Los Angeles on some time off. Guy's music is amazing and he plays his own work as well as performing in the Entrance band.

  • Janel took this picture of me in LA, getting some rare and well needed sunlight.

  • Performing in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. I'm from the Northeast and it really does feel like home to me.

  • One of the best parts of touring is getting to see friends that you haven't seen in a while. Anina and I went to RISD together and she's an architect. This is the main reason I love performing in Los Angeles.

  • I have no idea where I took this picture, but I know it was on tour and I know it was in Europe. Because in the US, I'm always driving myself, and on this past European tour, I had a driver for the second time in my ten years of touring. I love bleak, desolate landscapes and am looking forward to painting this.

  • Another bleak landscape of barren trees.

  • Home away from home.

  • Janel Leppin getting her groove on in preparation for one of our European tour dates!

  • I took this self portrait from the window of a hotel room on tour. I liked the way my figure was juxtaposed over the sea of cars and the industrial landscape.

  • Here is me, Janel Leppin, and Nina Violet at Studio Brussels. It's always nice to do radio shows when you are on tour. This particular studio was top notch and very fun to do!

  • Naomi Yang!! took this still when we were shooting the recent video for 'Drive' off of July.

  • This is a picture that I took in Ghent, Belgium. I've been working with Toutpartout booking agent for many years in Europe. Almost ten I think!! Anyway, their headquarters are in Ghent and they have a nice band apartment set up that became a bit of a home away from home on this recent tour.

  • Janel in an elevator. Enough said.

  • Janel and I at a rest stop somewhere in Europe… We spend a lot of time driving so rest stops are often the only things you see.

  • Europe driving picture

  • SPACE LADY… I like that

  • Car scribble.. shaky hands make shaky drawings

  • Church in Halifax, UK.

  • Brighton, UK. This was taken at night after playing there! Beautiful town by the seaside. :)
