Tame Impala to play Glasgow and Liverpool gigs

Band will play two UK dates ahead of Bestival in September

Tame Impala have announced details of live dates in Glasgow and Liverpool this September.

The gigs will act as warm-up for Tame Impala’s Bestival performance. They will play Barrowland Ballroom on September 8 before arriving in Liverpool the day after for a gig at the Olympia venue.

Tame Impala are expected to release a new album later this year. Plans for the follow-up to ‘Lonerism’ – NME’s 2012 Album of the Year – were revealed earlier this year in a leaked email from the band’s management company.

The release will be the band’s third album. Last year the band’s keyboardist Jay Watson hinted that the group’s new material would sound “less rock and more electronic”. Though keeping his cards close to his chest, he explained: “It’s probably gonna be less rock again and more electronic, even more than the last one. It’s gonna be awesome, everything he [frontman Kevin Parker] does is awesome.”

Tame Impala will play:

Glasgow, Barrowland (September 8)
Liverpool, Olympia (9)
