Field Music announce autumn 2012 UK shows
Sunderland duo also performing hometown benefit show on Saturday 14th April to Raise the Roof, tickets on sale now/Thursday 12th April
The Brewis brothers have had a rewarding past few years, what with making two of the best albums to ever escape from the North East in recent history. Field Music's excellent 2010 double-set '(Measure)' and this year's impressive, although far shorter, 'Plumb' are worthy of anyone's free time, packed full of soft harmonies, jagged riffs and, above all, imagination, something which many 'indie', 'rock' and 'pop' acts would do well to install into their creative craniums.
But if you haven't yet discovered these or their two earlier albums, 'Field Music' or 'Tones of Town', you may get to hear some of these earlier songs during their busy schedule in the summer - they are performing at Green Man Festival 2012, Standon Calling 2012 and as support to Elbow as part of the Live from Jodrell Bank concert series. But if festivals aren't 'you' and you need a bit of Field Music in a less than frenetic environment, read on.
The band will be back on the road in October for what looks like the makings of a full UK tour. At present just three shows have been confirmed, beginning with Leeds on 5th October, followed by Cardiff on the 11th and London's Electric Ballroom on the 17th. The Leeds and Cardiff shows will go on sale tomorrow morning (Thursday 12th April) at 9am, while the London show is on sale now, priced at just £12.50.
More pressing matters are at hand beforehand - Sunderland's iconic rehearsal space The Bunker desperately needs a new roof and Field Music will be headlining a fundraiser at the town's Independent venue on Saturday 14th April. For just £10 you get three bands (the other two are Lilliput and Maps Are Fiction plus a spot of clubbing straight afterwards. Proceeds go towards the Raise the Roof fund for the Bunker. C'mon Wearsiders - you can't have your musical heritage getting all soaked with rainwater, can you!?!
