Fat Friday: Pulp, Paloma Faith, Marina and the Diamonds, The Gaslight Anthem and more
You can bet that Pulp's homecoming show on 8th December will be a very VERY special occasion, one which could set the old tear ducts going at the very thought of it. Their chosen venue is Sheffield's trusty Motorpoint Arena and tickets will cost from £30.
In addition to the previously-announced 2013 shows, Paloma has announced a further string of them in new venues, such as Leicester, Plymouth etc as well as an extra for Manchester. All priced from around £20.
Band of Horses
A new album (their fourth) is due in the autumn ahead of this short UK tour that will prove to be VERY popular. It begins in Birmingham on the 15th, followed by Glasgow, Dublin, Manchester and finally (for now) Hammersmith on the 20th - all at £18.50 (except London at £20).
Marina and the Diamonds
In addition to her already busy autumn schedule, Marina has added some new shows to her Electra Heart tour, now including Leeds on 30th September, Liverpool on 4th October, Lincoln (14th Oct) and more. Prices start at £20.
At the Drive-In
The band's reformation is already causing excitement with their Reading and Leeds festival appearances lined up. Lucky Brixton can look forward to what might be their last ever show on 28th August - it'll be emotional (and loud).
The Gaslight Anthem
After huge public demand, a second Brixton Academy show has been added for 17th October. Their other shows in Manchester, Glasgow and Birmingham have sold out as well - we'll keep you informed of any additional gigs, but you can still catch them at Reading and Leeds festivals in August.
For 2013 and the grisly business of pushing their new album, DevilDriver have truly surpassed themselves with the additional aural bludgeoning courtesy of support Cannibal Corpse. All four shows are priced from £18.50.
Now free of major-label interferences, Coombes' debut is a bright brash thing and should translate well on tour. First stop is Newcastle on 17th October, followed by Manchester, Leeds and more cities until Bristol on 28th October. The London show is at XOYO and tickets are £12.50 to £13.50.
The Jim Jones Revue
More head-splitting, feral rock is promised from these powerful live treasures, due to perform in the autumn in many large cities. Manchester is on sale at 9am, but the rest up to Camden on 25th Oct are available now from £11 to £14.
And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead
Always a big draw for lovers of intense brain-batteringly good rock, AYWKUBTTOD make a welcome return to the UK in October with shows in London, Manchester and York. They are all on sale NOW and cost from £12 upwards.
Their Amaryllis tour kicks off in Southampton on 24th October, followed by shows in Exeter, London, Birmingham, and more until Norwich on 4th November. The London gig is at the Brixton Academy on 27th October and prices start at £16.
Also on sale this week are shows from Owl City, The Raveonettes (on sale now), Twin Shadow (Brixton), Orbital (extra tour dates), Errors, Joshua Radin, Hooded Fang, Alt-J, Amanda Palmer and Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti. For even more new tickets, scroll down!
