ALT-J today announce a five date UK tour for September. The tour will follow the release of the band’s third album, RELAXER; their headline date at the London O2 Arena for the venue’s 10th birthday celebrations; and a huge summer of UK and international shows, including Glastonbury and headline performances at Blue Dot and Boardmasters. Tickets for the new shows will go on general sale at 9.00am on Friday 2 June.
“This September we’ll be taking a few trips to the seaside, playing gigs in Brighton, Margate, Bournemouth, Weston-Super-Mare and Blackpool. Fish and chips, penny arcades and RELAXER. See you there?”
RELAXER was recorded throughout London – from Shoreditch to St John’s Wood and Crouch Hill to Brixton – with producer Charlie Andrew for a third time. The first tasters of the album have come with the 3WW and IN COLD BLOOD videos and the ADELINE audio video as follows:
ALT-J are JOE NEWMAN, GUS UNGER-HAMILTON and THOM GREEN, one of the most successful British bands of the millennium. RELAXER follows THIS IS ALL YOURS and the Mercury Prize and Ivor Novello Award-winning debut album AN AWESOME WAVE. Between them, the two records have sold in excess of two million copies and their songs have been streamed more than one billion times.
The band have headlined festivals across the globe and sold out London O2 Arena and New York’s legendary Madison Square Garden on their last tour.
