Los Angeles ‘it’ band The Neighbourhood have announced a short but surely appetite whetting UK tour for May. (The timing is a little strange though: I’d have thought the band would have appeared at either Liverpool Sound City or the Great Escape, but unless they are appearing on the Thursday of Sound City and/or hanging around for 2 weeks until the Great Escape, they will miss both.) Tickets are on sale this Friday, the 1st of February, at 9 AM. Prices are £9 regionally, £10 for London and £15 for Live at Leeds (subject to booking fee, of course).
Friday 3rd May 2013 – Manchester Ruby Lounge
Saturday 4th May 2013 – Leeds Live at Leeds
Sunday 5th May 2013 – Glasgow King Tuts
Monday 7th May 2013 – Bristol Start the Bus
Tuesday 8th May 2013 – London Heaven

Miles Kane‘s newest video for ‘Give Up’ is a visual with Kane banging on his guitar on a stage, with a woman writhing on a video behind him (disturbing, at least to me; it’s garnering great response from the male commentators of YouTube, though). With blistering audio, it’s worth watching if only for the music. Catch it below.
‘Give Up’ will be released as a single on the 24th of February digitally as a 4-track EP via iTunes, with a limited edition 7″ vinyl format available on the 25th. The song will feature on Kane’s second album, due out later this year. Kane and his band support NME Awards tour headliner Django Django starting the 7th of February in Newcastle, but they have two headline dates of their own in Wrexham and Reading on the 4th and 5th February, respectively (unfortunately, both of those dates are sold out).
