I Am Kloot confirm February 2013 UK tour
Posted: 24th October 2012
String of shows herald arrival of new album Let It All In, tickets on sale Friday 26th October
The curse of the Mercury Music Prize nomination thankfully hasn't struck down one of the bands most deserving of the prize. Since 2010, Manchester's atmospheric I Am Kloot have continued their creative and personal friendship with Elbow's Guy Garvey, sold out plenty of UK dates and slowly accrued a loyal following big enough to propel their fifth album "Sky at Night" into the Album Chart at a heady peak of #24. Good work, fans.
The mystery is why it took so long. I Am Kloot had been knocking around for the best part of a decade and appeared to have stalled in 2005 when third album "Gods and Monsters" failed to build upon the progress of their sophomore self-titled long-player from two years earlier. Apart from building a fanbase in the Netherlands, little happened until the aces "Sky at Night" was summoned before the judge and jury a few years ago - it didn't win, but look at them now.
To prove their popularity, I Am Kloot have successfully sold out their autumn 2012 tour, with the exception of Preston (still some tickets left for their show on 8th November - £17.50), which is part of the inspiration for next year's newly-announced UK tour. The band will kick off promotion for their brand-new album "Let It All In" in February at Glasgow's Oran Mor on 12th February, followed by Leeds, Manchester, Nottingham, London and more until concluding the jaunt in Coventry on the 24th.
We will have tickets for all the shows from 9am Friday 26th October, with prices set at around £18.50.
