MEN announce UK tour and ticket details

Former Le Tigre member JD Samson brings new band to the UK

MEN have announced details of the new UK tour to take place next January.

The New York three-piece – who feature Le Tigre member JD Samson – will visit Brighton and London on the tour, which is their first in the UK since last April.

Speaking to NME.COM, Samson said fans could expect to hear a raft of new songs at the gigs.

“Since our last trip to the UK in April, MEN has been working non-stop. We have recorded more than half of the tracks for our debut full length [due out in 2010] as well as toured the US and Canada extensively,” she explained.

“This past October and November was spent supporting longtime friends, Gossip and Peaches for their separate US headlining tours. We feel very excited to have been included on such amazing bills with such incredible bands and we can’t wait to show our UK family all of our new stage antics and material!”
