Ladyhawke announces November 2012 UK tour
Pip Brown is following this spring's sold-out tour with another clutch of shows for the autumn - we'll have tickets on sale Friday 14th September
It's been four years since Pip Brown emerged from the Antipodes with a canon of just-add-hot-water 21st century pop hits, not least the tireless Top Shop classic My Delirium. Influenced musically and stylistically by childhood hero Chrissie Hynde, by time spent listening to the Beatles and by a whole host of pop culture references, not least the band name taken from Richard Donner's 1985 film starring Michelle Pfeiffer, Brown's lively electro-pop swept all before it.
And at a time when the world was embracing Little Boots, Florence Welch and La Roux, making it onto playlists was no mean feat. But Ladyhawke had an ace up her biker jacketed sleeve - a selection of completely ace pop tunes. The self-titled debut record was a No 1 back home in New Zealand and made the Top 20 here. Such was the unexpected success of the formula she'd found, Brown didn't get round to releasing a follow-up until this year, with May's Anxiety.
Taking up where she left off, Anxiety outperformed the debut in the US, checking in to the Heatseekers countdown at an impressive No 12. And after a sold-out spring tour, Ladyhawke is returning to the UK later this year.
Ladyhawke's autumn jaunt kicks off in Brighton on 5th November, followed by UK dates in Glasgow, Leeds and Manchester, before the final gig announced so far at the Forum in London on 14th November 2012. We will have tickets available from 9am on Friday 14th September.
