BARROW BOYS!

They head for Scotland...

Vines have announced an extra date on their forthcoming UK tour.

The date is at Glasgow Barrowland on April 26, and is one of the centrepiece gigs in the TripTych festival bill – which stages events in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen. Full details of the festival line-up are to be announced later this week.

Support comes from fellow Aussie rockers Rocket Science , with another support act to be announced.

The band have already sold-out their hotly anticipated NME Awards fixture at the Astoria on April 23.

Frontman Craig Nicholls has been amassing new songs, with insiders saying he has come up with around 40 ideas since the release of last year’s debut ‘Highly Evolved’, some of which have been aired during their extensive tours last year and their Australian shows in January.

During the studio sessions back home, they demoed four tracks – the massively acclaimed ‘Fuck The World’ , which has been hailed as the song which will do for them what ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ did for Nirvana, ‘Drown The Baptists’ , ‘ Amnesia’ and ‘Evil Town’.

The UK gigs, which are preceded by a US tour in March, will give them a chance to work out more new material live, before they head back to the States to start work on the album.

The revised tour dates are as follows:

London Astoria (April 23)

Norwich UEA (25)

Glasgow Barrowland (26)

Wolverhampton Civic (27)

Newcastle Northumbria University (29)

Manchester Apollo (30)

London Brixton Academy (May 1)
