San Diego indie rockers, The Soft Pack have announced a series of UK gigs for February.
The quartet, formerly known as The Muslims (a band name promptly retracted "due to ignorant and racist comments"), who, after making waves at South By South West '09, have become the darlings of some of the country's biggest bands (Franz Ferdinand, Bloc Party and The Last Shadow Puppets to name a few), who have enlisted them as their supporting act over the past 12 months.
The band will play 13 shows in the UK between February 12th and 27th; kicking off at London Bordeline on 13th February as part of the HMV Next Big Thing festival (Feb 5th -14th), via the cities of Southampton, Brighton, Bristol, Cardiff, Manchester, Liverpool, Newcastle , Glasgow, Edinburgh, Leeds and Nottingham, before ending at Birmingham Academy 3 on the 27th.
Both their gigs at Manchester Ruby Lounge on the 19th and Glasgow's King Tuts Wah Wah Hut on the 23rd, are rescheduled dates, which were originally cancelled in November, for which original ticket holders will be able to attend.
The Soft Pack's eponymous debut album is expected on 1st February; in the meantime, be reminded that they have two EPs out (respectively released in March and May'09), 'The Muslims' and 'Extinction.'
Tickets are available now and all cost a tenner or less just right to get you tempted!
