It’s that time of year – a few hand-picked bands are gearing up to hit the road for the NME Awards Tour 2012, and we’re happy to finally announce the line-up. First up are Two Door Cinema Club – keep clicking to find out who else is on this year’s bill.
Two Door Cinema Club had a busy summer, and they closed it out with two explosive Main Stage sets at Reading And Leeds Festivals. Now the Irish trio are setting out on the NME Awards Tour, kicking off on February 9th in Newcastle.
Tickets for the NME Awards Tour go on sale Wednesday November 9th at 9am. Be sure to bookmark this link so you can be first in the online queue to order yours.
Hot off their recent headline show at the legendary Royal Albert Hall venue, Metronomy will also be joining the line-up for the NME Awards Tour.
Swing by one of the NME Awards Tour dates to watch Metronomy bring their Barclaycard Mercury Prize 2011-nominated album ‘The English Riviera’ to life.
Back in September, Metronomy’s Gbenga admitted his band wanted to challenge Beady Eye to a fight. OK, so it was a joke. But never know what other gems of wisdom they might come out with on stage during the tour.
Camden four-piece Tribes are also partaking in this year’s NME Awards Tour.
Tribes will be releasing their debut album, ‘Baby’, this January. You can pre-order signed copies now from play.com.
Tribes will also be playing a New Year’s Eve show with Slow Club, with support coming from Bones and Caan, at London’s HMV Forum.
Azealia Banks completes the bill. Check out our Radar feature to find our more on her.
Azealia Banks grabbed our attention with her track ‘212’, and we weren’t the only ones getting in a lather – Radio 1 grabbed the song and rinsed it for several weeks.
Azealia Banks admits she uses her sweat glands to determine her success. “Once my underarms are soaked and my make-up is running I’m like, ‘Oh shit, I got it!'” she admits.
