Twin Atlantic to perform 'Free' UK tour in autumn 2011 - tickets on sale now
Scotland's rock scene has been given a welcome boost by the recent success of Biffy Clyro and the resultant string of bands such as The Xcerts, Sucioperro and the Xtra Mile roster. One band from the same homeland might not be releasing their records on a local label (they record for Red Bull Records in California), but their energy and hard work could only come from one place - Glasgow.
Twin Atlantic formed in 2007 and in that short time have riffed their way from a debut EP and single, "Audience & Audio", support slots with Biffy, Smashing Pumpkins and Blink 182 and several festival slots across their homeland, including T in the Park and RockNess. By now you'd have expected a full-length album, but the band continued with more live shows and just a mini-album set in 2009, "Vivarium".
2011 has seen this state of affairs change with the album "Free", issued back in the spring. After seeing the opus notch up a Top 40 placing upon release, the words of one of our reviewers Amy, during her concluding sentence about "Vivarium" might be ringing in the band's ears - "Twin Atlantic will be hitting the big time soon enough" . She may be right.
The band will be touring the UK during the autumn, starting with Islington on 29th November, followed by Brighton, Birmingham and more until heading north of the border for Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee on 12th December. Tickets, on sale tomorrow morning (Fri), are a bargain £8 to £10, which should ensure a sell-out tour.
