Delphic Reach Their Counterpoint with More UK Dates Just Announced for March 2010

Posted: 20th January 2010

Manchester's new darlings of the nu-disco set, Delphic, have announced a further handful of dates in response to the demand for their current tour. All tickets are under a tenner (plus fee) [Heaven, London = £10 + fee - Ed] and all go on sale at 9am Friday 22nd January.

These new dates will start in Birmingham (O2 Academy) on March 14th then carry on to what might well become a haven for electro-disco nostalgia soon, Heaven in London on the 15th (Bernard Sumner's Bad Lieutenant appeared there last year) then on to the Cambridge Junction on the 16th, Manchester's Sankeys on the 17th and winding up in Sheffield's Leadmill on the 19th.

The buzz on this lot is starting to gather pace - after wowing festival crowds all summer long and releasing their debut 12" 'Counterpoint' back in April (reviewed on this very site), the word on the street has been favourable towards this intensely imaginative trio. Now they have a Top 10 album under their belt, everyone wants a piece of them [their current Jan/ Feb tour sold-out last year - Ed] - 'tis a very good album though (see review here as well) that also includes the recent single 'Doubt'. The lads have also been recently short-listed for the Brits Critic's Choice award, eventually snapped up by Ellie Goulding.
