Alt-J have announced a short run of headline gigs in the US for December as they begin a series of dates in Texas in support of Grouplove tonight (October 11th).
The support dates began on October 9th in Tulsa, Oklahoma, with stops in Houston, Helotes and Dallas now due to follow as they traverse the Lone Star state. An appearance at Austin City Limits is also booked for October 14th.
And the fast-rising band, who formed at Leeds Uni, have confirmed their own shows for December, beginning in San Francisco on December 11th. Further Californian gigs will immediately follow before the tour is brought to a close in Seattle on December 17th.
Alt-J’s debut album ‘An Awesome Wave‘ remains one of the hot favourites for this year’s Mercury Music Prize, which will be awarded at a London ceremony next month.
