Towers Of London cancel three UK shows

The band are finishing their album in LA

Towers Of London are set to kick off their UK tour later than expected on Thursday (October 14).

The band have been forced to pull the opening three nights of the trek as they are currently hard at work putting the finishing touches to their debut album in Los Angeles.

The affected shows include tonight at Hertfordshire University (October 11), Cardiff Barfly (12) and Oxford Zodiac (13).

A statement from the band said: “These dates will go ahead at a later unspecified date and tickets purchased for these gigs will be valid at rescheduled shows.”

They explained: “The band have had to prolong their current stay in LA to finish their debut album ‘Blood, Sweat And Towers’. Towers Of London apologise for the inconvenience to ticket holders but promise to return for these shows shortly.”

Towers Of London will launch their tour on October 14 at the

Tunbridge Wells Forum to celebrate the release of their next single ‘How Rude She Was’.

‘How Rude She Was’ is set to hit the shops on November 7 on two limited edition 7” vinyls, CD and as a download.

The first 7” is on pink vinyl in a gatefold sleeve, while the second is one sided with the flipside etched with the lyrics in a PVC picture sleeve.

‘Call Me Dangerous’ will feature on the B-side to the vinyl,

while the CD comes with new song ‘Novello’s Bordello’, an acoustic version of ‘Fuck It Up’ recorded in New York as well as the video for the lead track.
