Dananananaykroyd follow up the release of their amazing, brilliant and bonkers Ross Robinson-produced (At The Drive In, Klaxons, Slipknot, The Cure) new album ‘There Is A Way’, with the announcement of a full UK headline tour.
Friendly Fires have added dates across Europe to their previously announced UK tour, and will begin the new dates in September at the Rockefeller, Oslo.
European gigs throughout September will precede the UK leg, which kicks off in Bristol on November 10th. The tour is in support of the band’s recent second album ‘Pala‘, which was released in May and, on the back of the radio hit ‘Live Those Days Tonight‘, broke into the Top 10 on the UK Album chart.
Arcade Fire‘s much-lauded third studio album ‘The Suburbs‘ heads the list of nominees for this year’s Canadian Polaris Music Prize – their homeland’s equivalent of the Mercury Music Prize.
Folksters Timber Timbre and Toronto’s The Weeknd also feature on the shortlist, though ‘The Suburbs’, which has won countless awards and accolades including Grammys and Brits since its release last year, dominates the 2011 rundown.
After Live4ever caught up with former Creation boss Alan McGee back in January as the documentary on the legendary label was being readied for launch, we recently had a follow up chat to discuss the subsequent success of the film, as well as delving deeper into some recent family issues and, of course, some more thoughts on Noel Gallagher‘s newly-launched solo venture.
The show will be the first action for the band, which consists of former White Stripes man Jack White, acclaimed US songwriter Brendan Benson, as well as Jack Lawrence and Patrick Keeler, since the conclusion of promotional duties for second album ‘Consolers of the Lonely‘, released in March 2008.
