Splashh added to NME’s Generation Next Tour fixture in London

Howler-headed tour starts on October 19

Splashh are the latest band to join the bill for NME’s Generation Next gig at London’s KOKO on October 30. They join Gross Magic, The Cast Of Cheers and Howler.

In February’s Radar piece, NME described Splashh’s single ‘All I Wanna Do’ as “an essential slice of blissed-out, summer grunge”.

NME’s Generation Next Tour will take in 11 venues across the UK later this month, kicking off on October 19 at Bournemouth’s Old Fire Station and running until October 31. The trek also features shows in Bristol, Norwich, Birmingham, Glasgow, Manchester, Sheffield, London, Stoke and Nottingham. Splashh will be performing at the London show only.


Speaking about the tour, Howler frontman Jordan Gatesmith told NME: “We have abandoned our hometown of Minneapolis for a lifetime on the road. But that’s OK – rest is for the weak. The UK has been good to us this year and we’re looking forward to turning young people of Britain into a sweaty and excitable mess. See you in October.”
