Edinburgh indie band Django Django have announced details of a new UK and European tour for 2018.
The Edinburgh College of Art-formed outfit recently revealed that their eagerly-awaited third studio album, Marble Skies, will drop on January 26 – and before then, the band will road test their newbie at a low-key gig at Edinburgh’s Assembly Rooms on 25 November.
Now, the Djangos have announced a much bigger tour for 2018 – see full tour dates below, as well as ticket details.
Always an incendiary live experience, these dates represent their first full tour in the UK since 2015 – and includes a London show at arguably the capital’s newest and most exciting venue, The Printworks.
Tickets will go on pre-sale at 10am tomorrow – Wednesday, 25 October – and on general sale at 10am on Friday, 27 October and will be available from the band’s website.
A couple of weeks back, as reported on AAA, the Mercury Prize-nominated band returned with new single Tic Tac Toe (listen below), a rousing, trippy upbeat rock track with an enormous echoing hookline which will excite fans of the band’s rockabilly-influenced elements.
The accompanying video for Tic Tac Toe was directed by John Maclean, brother of Djangos’ drummer/producer David Maclean and director of the critically acclaimed modernist western Slow West.
It depicts vocalist/guitarist Vincent Neff enjoying a rapid-fire day-trip to Hastings, which takes a turn into the surreal and sinister when a ghost train puts him on a collision course with a grim reaper inspired by Ingmar Bergman’s The Seventh Seal.
As John Maclean explains: “The film could be about the fading era of the beach arcades, time moving too fast, love and games, horror and happiness but it is actually about a man who needs to go buy a pint of milk to make a cup of tea.”
