“This band could save your life” – Clash Magazine
“American export of the year...this is Band of Horses’ time” – NME
Following a pair of triumphant debut performances at this years Reading and Leeds festivals, South Carolina’s Band of Horses have announced that they will return for a full UK and European tour in early 2011. Tickets will go on sale on 3 September.
Kicking off in Newcastle on 26 January, Band of Horses will make their way around the UK. Gigs in Glasgow, Birmingham, Bristol, Leeds and Manchester precede what is sure to be an unforgettable evening at London's O2 Academy Brixton on 3 February.
This year has been nothing short of a whirlwind for the Low-Country’s finest. Since releasing their third album Infinite Arms in May to worldwide critical acclaim - hailed by NME as their ‘defining statement’ and ‘A landmark’ by Uncut - they have toured relentlessly, including a prestigious main support slot on Pearl Jam’s recent North American tour, a sold-out London show at the Roundhouse, TV appearances including a return for a second time to Later With Jools Holland and a run of UK & European festivals, a highlight of which saw them play a landmark show to 22,000 fans in Malmo, Sweden and if that isn’t enough they are about to embark on an autumn US tour.
Band of Horses have become a cohesive force with all five members making invaluable contributions to the unmistakable sound that founder Ben Bridwell has crafted since the band’s inception.
This tour is hugely anticipated and will be a welcome return for the band in the New Year.
