Prize for the biggest tour of 2009 possibly goes to Athlete, who are embarking on a huge tour in just over two weeks time. For some reason I thought I’d written about this, but clearly not. Make sure you get out and check these lads out on tour – I hope to be able to make the Oxford date.

Having supported the likes of Girls Aloud and The Hoosiers recently, things are moving pretty quickly for Absent Elk.
Based in Shoreham on the Sussex coast, Anglo-Norwegian Absent Elk are Kjetil Morland (vocals, guitar), Ross Martin (guitar, keyboards), Mike Hillman (guitar), James Penhallow (bass), and Ric Wilson (drums). Their debut single ‘Sun And Water’ is released May 17th.
They’re about to embark on their debut headlining UK tour, playing what will sure to be some great shows – we’ll have a full interview with them shortly, but in the mean time nip on over to your favourite ticket retailer (I reccomend Ticketweb myself) and buy yourself a bunch of tickets to their shows – you’ll love ’em, I promise!
