Klaxons have said that it's now too expensive to be in a band, especially for those that live in London, hence the rise of the laptop producer.

"It's expensive being in a band," said James Righton of the group in a new interview with Dummy. "Way cheaper buying a laptop."

The tour will follow the release of new album 'Love Frequency', which came out in June.

Klaxons will play:

Norwich Waterfront (October 25)
Leeds Cockpit (26)
Glasgow O2 ABC (27)
Manchester Academy 3 (28)
Brighton Concorde 2 (30)
Bristol Thekla (31)
Birmingham O2 Academy 2 (November 1)
Nottingham Rescue Rooms (2)
London Shepherds Bush Empire (4)


To check the availability of Klaxons tickets and get all the latest listings, head to NME.COM/tickets."Living in London, even when we started, was expensive for us being on the dole in New Cross. We somehow managed it. Now, it's a lot more expensive to live in New Cross than it was when we started. In East London, or in Dalston, it's been pushed out even further," he continued.

Simon Taylor-Davis added: "Some of our friend’s bands now have rehearsal spaces in Leyton. They were in Seven Sisters before. It’s just going further and further north. We’ve spent our whole entire existence as a band trying to be able to afford to buy, or at least rent, a rehearsal space. We haven’t found it in nine years."

Klaxons will tour in October and November, with everything seen on stage including guitars, amps and lights, created using the latest technology in 3D printing. Speaking about the tour, which begins on October 25 at Norwich Waterfront, Jamie Reynolds of the band says: "We're going to do something nobody has ever done before. Something big, something fresh. Why not?"
