Slow Club have announced their sixth annual Christmas gig, this year taking place at London's Shepherd's Bush Empire.

The Sheffield duo, who last year organised a full UK December tour, will play the venue on December 10. They started their Christmas tradition in 2008 when they played the Union Chapel, before more recently graduating to Koko in Camden, and now west London's Empire.

The band, which consists of Rebecca Taylor and Charles Watson, will play songs from both their 2009 album 'Yeah So' and 2011's 'Paradise' as well as their as-yet-untitled third album, thought to be due in January of next year. As usual there will also be a handful of Christmas covers thrown in, and special guests.

Slow Club, who are signed to indie label Moshi Moshi, have been recording their third album in Sheffield with Richard Hawley band member and collaborator Colin Elliot. They debuted new tracks earlier this year during a live performance at Camden's Barfly including 'Suffering Me, Suffering You' and 'Dependable People, The Things That I'm Sure Of', while on last year's Christmas tour, when the duo were bolstered onstage by drums, bass and brass section, they performed four new songs including 'The Queen's Nose', named after the cult 1990s CBBC drama.
