Dr. Martens #standforsomething UK Tour / September, October and November 2015

 
By on Monday, 29th June 2015 at 9:00 am
 

Dr. Martens has just announced Dutch Uncles, Palma Violets and Lonely the Brave as the first three headliners on its Stand for Something Tour 2015.  As in the past, this year’s Stand for Something Tour will once again feature six shows in six different cities, each headlined by a different up and coming band.  Though the headliners for the remaining 3 nights of the tour are yet to be announced, we at TGTF would like to take the opportunity to preview the three bands already lined up to play.

Dutch Uncles, pictured in the header photo at top, released their most recent album back in February, the third in their discography titled ‘O Shudder’.  They will appear at Tramlines, Kendal Calling, and Festival Number 6 later this summer before headlining the Glasgow Stand for Something show on the 26th of September.  They will spend this November on tour in Europe and the UK with Garbage.  When asked by the promoters of the Dr. Martens tour what Dutch Uncles stand for, the band responded in a very literal, yet humourous way: “Determinedly Underrated Tricky Choruses Housed in Uncompromisingly Natured Cadenzas and Listened to Enduringly, Sort of.”  Previous TGTF coverage of Dutch Uncles is right this way.

Palma Violets by Ed Miles

London’s Palma Violets have already had a bustling 2015, headlining the NME Awards Tour in February and March, then releasing their second LP ‘Danger in the Club’ in May.  Their summer vacation plans include the ongoing Glastonbury Festival, as well as T in the Park and Reading and Leeds. They will headline the Dr. Martens show on the 10th of October in Norwich before heading out on selected tour dates with The Vaccines in November.  For our previous coverage of Palma Violets, click here.

Lonely the Brave

Moving forward from their support slot on last year’s Stand for Something Tour, Cambridge quintet Lonely the Brave will headline the show on the 7th of November in Belfast.  They have just released a new version of their debut album ‘The Day’s War’, which they have dubbed the ‘Victory Edition’.  The new release includes remixes and live versions from the original album as well as 12 previously unreleased tracks.  Building upon their already substantial fan base, Lonely the Brave will play summer festival dates at T in the Park and Reading and Leeds ahead of the Dr. Martens tour.  Our previous coverage of Lonely the Brave is right back here.

Following are the announced dates, venues, and headline acts for the Stand for Something Tour 2015.  Check the Dr. Martens Web site for updated information as the live dates approach.
