Last weekend, the group laughed off technical issues as they played Leeds Festival. The band played an early evening set on the NME/Radio 1 Stage.

Ending their 5.10PM set with ‘Moaning Lisa Smile’, lead singer Ellie Rowsell’s guitar stopped working and the band’s stage technician appeared unable to fix the issue. Having tried to play it a second time with no luck, Rowsell dropped the instrument on the floor and jumped on bassist Theo Ellis’ shoulders, wrestling him to the floor in the process.

The band tour the UK later in September, with gigs scheduled in Bristol, Birmingham, Glasgow, Newcastle, Sheffield, Southampton and Manchester.

Bristol O2 Academy (September 16)
Birmingham Institute (17)
