And So I Watch You From Afar postpone November 2012 UK tour

Irish rockers to reschedule dates for 2013 - original tickets valid. New dates to be announced soon
And So I Watch You From Afar

In a week of postponements and rescheduling, another has come to light recently. So, in case you missed the announcement, And So I Watch You From Afar have had to delay their November tour due to 'medical reasons'. The band explained here:

It's with a heavy heart that due to a band member having to undergo a medical procedure in late September now, we are postponing our upcoming autumn tour 'til the new year. We are deeply sorry to have to do this but it's a must and its better in the long run. Please dont worry as all is well and we're all ok.

Keep hold of those tickets, folks - there's a good chance that the rockers will be performing in early 2013. New dates have yet to be announced but as soon as they do, we'll let you know.

Formed in 2005 after being inspired by a trip to that year's Oxegen Festival, ASIWYFA self-financed a brace of EPs that helped get them a slot at Glastonbury in 2007. With interest in similar bands starting to heighten, the then quartet formed a bond with Maybeshewill and toured the UK and Europe with them, before finally getting a debut album released in 2009. Although the self-titled set passed most people by, it boded well for future projects, proven by the 2011 album 'Gangs'. Bigger and bolder in sound, it earned them a Top 30 spot on the Irish Album Chart, no mean feat when you're faced with Jedward. The band will resume finishing off album number three in due course.
