Blood on the Dance Floor announce Evolution UK tour dates for autumn 2012

Posted: 8th August 2012
Explosive Electro-rockers celebrate new album and Vans Warped Tour 2012 London appearance with lots of British shows, tickets on sale today/ Thursday

The band Kiss have a lot to answer for - make-up in rock has never been so vibrant, especially with outrageous technicolour electro-cum-crunkpunk-cum-dubstep duo, Floridians Blood on the Dance Floor. Mock their cockatiel hair and kooky lipstick all you like - this band have shifted a serious number of downloads in the past few years and have scared a few parents to death. Which of course is what it's all about, right?

New video and single "Deep Within" is a suitable enough trigger for pulmonary relapses and coronary failure with lyrics like "Titty bouncing, people jumping like we having fun", "Cups up who wants to suck my lollipop", "Your boobies look delicious" and "Fingers up at the club, you tricks can lick my nuts". You can bet they're not singing about the Olympics. Forget Marilyn Manson grown-ups - this lot are way ahead of that old game. Check out "Money and Hoes", "Sexting", "Inject Me Sweetly", "Crunk Man" and "Happy Violentine's Day" for proper pop subversion.

Loud, brash, infectious - they'll be 'getting cray in the UK' very soon in order to support their newest album "Evolution", which recently went Top 50 Stateside and might just signify a global take-over by key remaining members, Dahvie Vanity and Jayy Von Monroe.

In addition to their slot at London's Vans Warped Tour 2012 event on 10th November, BOTDF have inked in some headlining shows for Brighton (9th), Bristol, Glasgow, Manchester and more until another (more intimate) London date at the 229 Venue on 17th November.

Ticket prices are dirt-cheap - £8 upwards - and we'll have them all on sale from 9am Thursday onwards except Brighton and Bristol, which you can buy now and Newcastle, which goes on sale at 5pm today.
