US nu-metal band will bring 2001 record to Britain in January

Alien Ant Farm will play their album ‘ANThology’ in full on a UK tour in January 2016.

The 2001 album turns 15 next year and the US band will play it in full at venues around the UK, starting in Milton Keynes at the Craufurd Arms on January 5. ‘ANThology’ includes the single ‘Movies’ and Alien Ant Farm’s cover of Michael Jackson hit ‘Smooth Criminal’.

Other stops on the 15-date tour will include gigs in Birmingham, Glasgow, Liverpool, York, London, Manchester, Sheffield and Exter before the tour ends in Brighton on January 21. Support on all dates will come from InMe and The Dirty Youth.

Alien Ant Farm frontman Dryden Mitchell said “It’s always a great time when we get to tour overseas,” in a statment, adding: “but being able to play the ‘ANThology’ record from front to back, in countries that helped give us our first Number One singles, is going to be extra special. We’ve waited 15 years to do this and we will not disappoint!”
