Alt-J to play London’s O2 Arena next year

altjwideWith their second album ‘This Is All Yours‘ edging ever closer, Alt-J have announced plans for an ambitious gig at the O2 Arena in London next year.

The date has been scheduled for January 24th at the 20,000 capacity venue, while a September tour of the UK and Ireland has already been outlined and will take in shows at the Glasgow O2 Academy, Manchester Apollo, Wolverhampton Civic Hall, Brighton Centre, London Alexandra Palace and the Dublin O2 Arena.

Alt-J have been steadily releasing singles from the follow-up to 2012’s Mercury winning ‘An Awesome Wave‘, the most recent of those being ‘Every Other Freckle‘, of which Gus Unger-Hamilton told the BBC’s Zane Lowe:

“We pretty much learned from the reaction of the first record that we could get away with whatever we wanted musically. That’s really represented well by the three songs we’ve released so far.”
