Warpaint announce UK and Ireland tour

The four-piece will hit the road in March 2017

Warpaint have announced a new UK and Ireland tour for March 2017.

The L.A. four-piece released their third studio album, ‘Heads Up’, in September, and promoted it in the UK with a tour that concluded at the Roundhouse in London on October 27. They last performed in Ireland in August, with a gig at Dublin’s National Concert Hall.

Warpaint will now return to the UK and Ireland just five months after their last show here for a new tour, where they will play venues in the likes of Birmingham, Dublin and Oxford. See the new dates below.

March 22 2017 – O2 Institute, Birmingham
March 23 2017 – Leeds Beckett Students Union, Leeds
March 26 2017 – Vicar Street, Dublin
March 28 2017 – O2 Academy, Oxford
March 29 2017 – Dome, Brighton

Warpaint will also play a number of shows in mainland Europe prior to the UK dates. See their full itinerary here.

 

Last week, the band revealed that the death of David Bowie in January this year helped inspire ‘Heads Up’.

“David Bowie had died the day before, and we went into the studio and listened to Bowie and built our studio out of our practice space,” vocalist Emily Kokal said. “We took our practice space and started making it something to record in. It was a great way to enter the studio because it was such a celebration of somebody who was so prolific and such an ever-changing artist.”
