Two Door Cinema Club have announced an 11-date UK tour for January and February next year, kicking off at Birmingham’s O2 Academy and climaxing in a massive show at Alexandra Palace in London.
The Irish trio made their long-awaited live return at this summer’s Glastonbury stage after their self-imposed hiatus, followed by headline slots on the NME/Radio 1 Stage at Reading & Leeds Festival. Returning to legions of devoted followers singing back their treasured hits in their thousands, the band’s brief return to the live circuit served as a promising taster of what is set to be another huge year for Two Door Cinema Club in 2017.
The headline tour will follow the release of the band’s third studio album Gameshow, released on 14 October. Recorded in Topanga Canyon, California with renowned producer Jacknife Lee (REM, U2, Bloc Party), the new album sees the band challenge themselves to indulge in a wide and varied range of styles and influences, stretching way beyond the traditional Two Door sound to take in the likes of Prince, Chic, krautrock, neo soul and modernist pop.
