Fossil Collective announce headlining UK tour for autumn 2012

Young Leeds alt-folk duo follow debut jaunt with further shows in October, tickets this week

A few months ago, the keen-eyed readers of this site will have stumbled across an article about Leeds pairing Fossil Collective and their debut headlining full-length jaunt around the UK. Perhaps you clicked for tickets and attended one of their shows. Maybe you missed out. Either way, the experience has clearly fired up the band because they've just announced a second tour, this time in October.

Formed from the ashes of popular indie-rockers Vib Gyor in 2010 by ex-members Dave Fendick, Jonny Hooker (with occasional input from Zane Keenan), Fossil Collective have drawn comparisons from critics as being a little bit Bon Iver, a little bit James Vincent McMorrow and a touch of Fleet Foxes. These comparables are all very well but do they have the tunes? Well, yes. They've recently issued their second EP entitled 'Let It Go' and just sneaked a free download of their almost-jaunty cover of Frankie Goes To Hollywood's 'The Power of Love'. You can check it out right here!

In anticipation of further new material, Fossil Collective have sewn together a tapestry of UK shows that takes in towns such as Doncaster on 12th October, then Manchester, Newcastle, Oxford and lots more until Leicester on the 27th. Tickets are now available for most of the shows via us, priced at around £6.50. A London show will be announced in due course.
