The brilliant The Antlers have announced details for a UK tour this November. The news coincides with the release of their brand new album Burst Apart, which will be released on June 13th courtesy of Transgressive Records.
Anyone who caught the band touring their 2009 breakthrough, Hospice, will verify that The Antlers are a band who are worth travelling a fair distance to see. I saw them play at the O2 Academy Oxford a couple of years ago and, despite playing the album from start to finish, track by track, I struggle to bring to mind a gig with a more captivated audience.
The tour dates go as follows:
Tuesday 8th November 2011: Concorde 2, Brighton
Wed 9th: Thekla, Bristol
Thurs 10th: Koko, London
Fri 11th: Rainbow, Birmingham
Sat 12th: Stylus – Constellations Festival, Leeds
Mon 14th: Soundcontrol, Manchester
Tues 15th: King Tuts, Glasgow
