Fickle Friends / November and December 2016 UK Tour

 
By on Tuesday, 6th September 2016 at 8:00 am
 

Brighton’s Fickle Friends have announced a November and December 2016 UK tour, culminating in a show at London Heaven on the 1st of December. Back in late July, the Southern group released their newest single ‘Cry Baby’. You can read Rebecca’s thoughts on the release through here; watch the accompanying part story / part performance promo video for ‘Cry Baby’ that dropped last week at the bottom of this post.

Last we heard, they were still working on the details to their debut album with producer and past Two Door Cinema Club and The 1975 collaborator Mike Crossey in Los Angeles. But we do wonder, given the timing of the live UK dates, if the LP is set for a release either before or after these shows in mid to late November. In any event, the tickets for this tour are on sale now, and they’re all listed in a handy graphic from the band below. To read more about Fickle Friends on TGTF, go here.

Teleman / October and November 2016 UK Tour

 
By on Monday, 23rd May 2016 at 9:00 am
 

Glory Hallejujah! No pun intended: London’s Teleman, led by frontman Tommy Sanders, have announced a massive new winter UK tour for October and November 2016. All the dates are listed below, and tickets are available now.

The band have also released a promo video for what I consider one of their latest album’s strongest offerings. ‘Brilliant Sanity’ was released back in April on Moshi Moshi Records (read my review here) and ‘Glory Hallejujah’, not to be confused with or compared to the Leonard Cohen tearjerker, now has its own promo video. Directed by the band’s own keyboardist Jonny Sanders, there’s running around, daylight and nighttime, water and rocky outcrops, indoor shots of cathedrals and outdoor shots of…well…cathedrals. And some live shots from touring. It’s all here in the promo for ‘Glory Hallejujah’, which you can watch below. PS: hey Tom, I hope you’re happy and smiling somewhere. For more on Teleman on TGTF, head here.
