Video of the Moment #1120: Little Comets

By on Sunday, 10th February 2013 at 10:00 am

‘Violence Out Tonight’ is the new video from Little Comets; the song appears on their new album ‘Life is Elsewhere’ released in autumn 2012. Grimmer and heavier than usual Little Comets fare, it’s a good example of the band’s ability to flex their emotional muscles. Watch the video below.

The band will be heading out on a tour of the UK and Ireland in April; they’ve explained they’re gigging in less usual tour stops: “We really wanted to make a concerted effort to play in some cities that we haven’t been to in a while and unfortunately we had to make a few geographical sacrifices.”

Edit 21/03/13: it was revealed this week that Sheffield’s Crookes will be joining Little Comets on the first half of this tour (the 9th of April to the 19th of April); see starred dates below.


Tuesday 9th April 2013 – Nottingham Rescue Rooms*
