The Twang announce autumn 2011 UK headline tour - tickets available now
After touring with baggy legend Shaun Ryder earlier in the year, Brummie indie popsters The Twang have announced a series of headline dates for the autumn.
Having formed in 2001, The Twang were finally an overnight success in 2007 with the release of back-to-back hit singles 'Wide Awake' and 'Either Way'. Somewhere between The Streets and The Mock Turtles, The Twang struck all the right notes with the music-buying public (back when the public used to buy music), and their debut LP 'Love It When I Feel Like This' was a hit, peaking at No 3 in the album charts.
Follow-up, 2009's 'The Jewellery Quarter', was also a success, striking the right chords with fans and TV producers alike. Tracks from the sophomore album were used in both BBC and ITV soccer coverage, a source of particular pride for a band of dedicated football fans.
In 2011, The Twang finished recorded their as-yet-untitled third album, scheduled for release in January 2012. Ahead of the new record, the band is taking the new material on the road with a UK tour that deliberately targets the weekend crowd.
As lead singer Phil Etheridge explains on the band's website: "Twang shows have always been more like a party than a gig. The best gigs are always the weekend shows, so we thought, 'let's just do weekends' - with the odd exception. Well, Thursday is the new Friday after all!"
The first of the 17 dates is in Luton on 23rd September, followed by shows in Bristol, Glasgow, Dunfermline, London (Electric Ballroom), Portsmouth, Liverpool and others, before the final gig at Soundcontrol in Manchester on 22nd October.
We have tickets for most dates available now, generally priced £12.50 (£15 for London).
