All The Young round off busy year with autumn 2012 UK tour

Posted: 18th September 2012
Stoke's power-pop favourites follow up Welcome Home and Somerset House slot with handful of shows, tickets on sale Friday 21st September

When you learn of the bands that All the Young have supported and played with down the years, it helps paint a reasonably accurate picture of just where they're at, sound-wise. Morrissey, Kaiser Chiefs, The Courteeners and, most recently at London's swish Somerset House, The Enemy - not a bad representation of All The Young's lyrical swagger and polished power-pop, dressed up in Crombies, confidence and charisma and ready to take on the world. Or, at the very least, Britain.

After issuing several well-received well-produced indie-rock singles during 2011, including the excellent 'The First Time' debut, 'Welcome Home' and 'Quiet Night In', the debut album finally appeared back in April of this year and scored them a Top 40 placing - not bad for a band with a keen reputation for rousing live shows. Fans of The Enemy might have discovered that at Somerset House, back in July.

If not, they and the band's Young bucks and belles will be keen to see them again during their next UK tour, which will kick off later in the autumn. First stop is hometown Stoke on 23rd November, followed by Bristol on the following night, then Manchester, Birmingham, Edinburgh and many more due tbc, including a London date. Tickets are on sale via us at 9am on Friday 21st September. It wouldn't be unreasonable to expect a few new songs in amongst the set-list...
