Further challenging the notion that nothing ever happens here Mercury-nominated Wolf Alice have announced a Derby date on their UK tour.
Following a month-long sold-out US tour the band are returning to the UK to play smaller venues, including some of those they played on their first ever tour. As part of this the band will play The Venue on Wednesday 16 August.
They will then go on to tour Europe before returning to the UK in the autumn for further dates including their biggest headline show to date at London’s Alexandra Palace. Seeing a band of this stature in a small venue in Derby is an experience not to be missed.
An evocative North London alt-rock outfit led by vocalist Ellie Rowsell, Wolf Alice deftly mixes folk, grunge, and electronic elements with vintage ’90s indie rock. Their 2015 debut album, My Love Is Cool, was Mercury Prize-nominated and achieved Gold status and a number 2 high in the UK Album Chart. The follow up, Visions Of A Life, is set for release on 29 September this year.
Formed in 2010 by Rowsell and guitarist Joff Oddie, the duo issued an eponymous EP independently before expanding into a four-piece in 2012 with the addition of drummer Joel Amey and bassist Theo Ellis. The newly minted quartet released a flurry of singles before putting out a proper debut EP, Blush, in 2013. The EP garnered positive reviews, with some critics comparing the group to Elastica, Garbage, the Duke Spirit, and the Pixies.
Tickets for the gig will go on sale at 10am on Friday 28 July 2017 via See Tickets and Gigantic and The Venue are advising those wanting to attend to buy in advance for what is likely to be an in-demand show in the city. Tickets are priced at £10 and supports are yet to be announced.
