Darwin Deez for February/ March 2011 UK tour
When New York City's latest indie-rock export Darwin Deez announced a series of autumn UK dates, most venues sold out in a beat. With the European leg of that tour still running, Darwin Smith's band have announced a series of new dates for next spring.
Darwin Smith was at Wesleyan University with Ben and Andrew from MGMT. Whilst those two were rocking out to the sounds of Ultravox, Nine Inch Nails and Neil Young, Darwin was shaking his poodle perm to NY indie-rockers The Strokes and NY indie-rockers The Virgins. Or perhaps NY indie-rock legends The Ramones or the New York Dolls. Probably.
Certainly XFM liked breakthrough single 'Radar Detector' A LOT and playing it once every 20 minutes helped Radar Detector to reach the UK top ten. The follow-up, 'Up in the Clouds', has not attracted as much airplay but the self-titled debut album is still selling well making the top five.
Nine shows have been announced for early next year, beginning at Manchester's Academy 2 on 24th February and closing at Concorde 2 in Brighton on 5th March. In-between, there are dates in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Norwich, Birmingham, London and Bristol.
The recent gigs have received some great reviews so maybe DD are the real deal. You should probably go and find out. Tickets - from £10 - go on sale at 9AM on Friday 15th October.
