Django Django announce details of new album ‘Born Under Saturn’ and UK tour

Group's second record will be released on May 4

Django Django have announced details of their new album ‘Born Under Saturn’, which will be released on May 4 and supported by an 10-date UK tour.

Fans can pre-order the album for exclusive access to presale tickets, which will go onsale at 9am on February 17. General tickets go onsale at 9am on February 19.

The album was recorded at Netil House in east London and Angelic Studios in Banbury and was produced by drummer Dave Maclean. It is the band’s second record and the follow-up to 2012’s self-titled debut.

The tour will kick off in Aberdeen on May 2 and ends in Manchester on May 23. The band are also confirmed to play BBC 6Music’s annual festival, The Great Escape and End Of The Road Festival.

“When we were writing the lyrics there were lots of references to rebirth, turning a new page and starting something again,” Maclean said of the record. “I guess that’s something we all felt.”

Django Django unveiled the lead single from their new album, entitled ‘First Light’, last month. The song is available on limited white label 12-inch and was followed by two intimate shows: one at Leeds’ Wardrobe on February 14 and the second at Edinburgh’s Liquid Room on February 15.
