Princess Superstar’s spokeswoman told NME.COM: “Jarvis and Princess Superstar wanted to do something together, but in a different location. Jarvis went out searching, came back with the idea of Pentonville Prison and everyone loved it.”

Princess Superstar also plays at Glasgow Queen Mary Hall (November 14) and Manchester University Union (15).
