LONDON GANG BANG PUT ON HOLD

A mix-up in the band's schedule means the Astoria show is put back until August...

THE BLOODHOUND GANG have rearranged their one-off LONDON show because of a mix-up in the band’s recording and touring schedules.

The band were due to make their only confirmed UK headline appearance at the London Astoria on July 24, but that has now been postponed until August 16. The band’s new single, ‘The Ballad Of Chasey Lain’ has also been put back to coincide with the rearranged show.

A spokesperson for the band told nme.com: “There has been a mix up in their scheduling, and they also need to find time to go in to the studio to remix some B-sides as well. I think there are lots of different reasons why the show had to change.”

‘The Ballad Of Chasey Lain’ will now be released on August 14. The single will be released on two CDs and feature remixes by the Pet Shop Boys and the Bloodhound Gang, as well as the uncensored video for the band’s last single ‘The Bad Touch’ across the formats.

The Bloodhound Gang also make an appearance at this year’s V2000 Festival at Hylands Park, Chelmsford and Weston Park, Staffordshire over the weekend of August 19-20. The band play below Supergrass and Mansun on the second stage.
