Hugo Manuel’s one man discotheque, Chad Valley has been announced as a support act for Friendly Fires‘ UK tour this November. Chad Valley, who recently released his fantastic new EP Equitorial Ultravox, will also be joined by the mysteriously masked avant-electronica sensation SBTRKT, who is currently label mates with Radiohead on XL Recordings.
All three artists have enjoyed a fine 2011 so far. Friendly Fires unleashed their exuberantly catchy dance-pop sophomore Pala, SBTRKT released thier debut to a deluge of positive criticism (Pitchfork – 8.1/10, Drowned In Sound – 9/10, 405 – 9.5/10) and, the man himself, Chad Valley has enjoyed decent national exposure as well as seeing Blessing Force take off with a series of art/musical installations up and down the country.
The tour goes as follows:
Thu 19th November – O2 Acadmey Bristol
Fri 11th – O2 Academy Birmingham
Sat 12 – Southampton Guildhall
