Glasvegas announce short December 2012 tour
The Glaswegians will play seven shows on the Crying Onion tour in the run-up to Christmas, we'll have tickets from 9am on Friday 5th October
In 2008, in the fine tradition of Scottish indie rock, came Glasvegas. In fact, they were already five years in by then but that was the year they began to make it big with a Mercury Music Prize nomination and indie teen mag NME mentioning them in the same breath as heavyweights The Libertines and the Arctic Monkeys.
Perhaps influenced by both those bands, Glasvegas brought a distinctly Glaswegian brogue to the indie music scene with tracks such as Geraldine and the excellent Daddy's Gone. Both helped the self-titled debut album to No 2 in 2008, impressively followed three years later by the syntax-bothering EUPHORIC /// HEARTBREAK which also made the UK Top Ten.
Muse might be turning into a low-rent Queen but the success of The Vaccines suggests that there's still plenty of room for honest guitar-bashing indie and you'd be a fool to bet against the success of Glasvegas's third studio album, Later...When the TV Turns To Static, which is set for release early next year. The new material will line up along a fine back catalogue for a series of December dates.
The Crying Onion tour kicks off in Manchester on 2nd December 2012, followed by a Newcastle show before a run of five Scotland gigs beginning in Inverness on 5th December. After dates in Aberdeen, Glasgow and Dundee, the tour closes at The Venue in Dumfries on 10th December.
We will have tickets available from 9am on Friday 5th October, priced from around £16.
