Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs to take Trouble on the rampage with 2012 UK tour
Orlando Higginbottom's theatrical take on the dance scene is following the debut album and a summer of festivals with an October tour - tickets Thursday 21st June
The man behind Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs is neither enormous nor extinct, or, for that matter, is he a dinosaur. In fact, far from being the partying lunatic with the killer tunes and the T-Rex costume that the punters see; Orlando Higginbottom would appear to be a rather thoughtful DJ and electronic artist who deliberately picked the moniker and stage get-up to avoid pigeon-holing.
What's most impressive about Orlando's TEED is that no-one really talks about the outfit or the unusual sobriquet (although Orlando Higginbottom is itself hardly a common name). No, all anyone talks about is the music. And with debut album Trouble being released just last week, the chatter has got all the more intense with the record immediately breaking into the UK Top 40. The bottom line for TEED is that people are speaking only of the tunes which is, one suspects, exactly how Orlando Higginbottom meant it to be.
TEED kicks off the autumn road trip at the Shepherds Bush Empire on 10th October, followed by shows in Norwich, Leeds and Liverpool, before the final gig announced so far at the HMV Institute in Birmingham on 24th October. We will have tickets available from 9am on Friday 22nd June 2012.
Ahead of the October dates, TEED have a summer schedule packed with festival appearances including Benicassim, Bestival 2012 and the Ibiza 123 Rocktronic Festival. We have a selection of tickets available (see below).
