The Internet, an Odd Future offshoot group fronted by Syd and Matt Martians, have announced a four-date UK Tour this November which will see Thundercat co-headline two shows in Manchester and London.
The tour kicks off in Glasgow at the O2 ABC2 on November 24, with additional shows at Manchester’s Academy 2 on November 25, London’s KOKO on November 26 and the Marble Factory in Bristol on November 27. Thundercat will join the tour for the Manchester and London gigs. Tickets go on sale at 9am this Friday (August 14).
The Internet released their third album, ‘Ego Death’, via Columbia Records in June. Prior to forming the soul-influenced band in 2011, both Syd and Martians worked as producers for Odd Future, with Syd also serving as the group’s DJ.
The Internet will play:
Glasgow O2 ABC2 (November 24)
Manchester Academy 2 (25)
London KOKO (26)
Bristol Marble Factory (27)
Odd Future appeared to disband in May when group leader Tyler, The Creator tweeted that “although its no more, those 7 letters are forever”. It was thought that he was referring to the initials of the band’s full title ‘OFWGKTA’ (Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All). Earl Sweatshirt soon added that Tyler had been “solidifying the obvious”.
Martians later discussed the situation, saying the statements “needed to be said, because I think it’s important for our progress, and other people in Odd Future’s progress, to shed that name. It’s a badge. It’s a great thing. Everything has to move on. Everything has to have closure.”
