Never miss another 'The Virgins' show
The Virgins, who recently released their new album 'Strike Gently' through Cult Records, will perform at London's The Old Blue Last on 20th June.
Recorded in New York at the East Village Recording Centre (underneath the site of the storied former rock club 'Brownies'), the long-awaited second album from the New York band was produced by The Unicorn Parade (Johnny T. Yerington and Gus Oberg).
Cult Records founder Julian Casablancas notes, "When I first saw the Virgins I was psyched there was such a rad new band from NYC. Donald's such an awesome guy and it's great to meet someone who's such a true artist. I think they've made a classic record and we're really excited they chose to work with us."

Purveyors of Rolling Stone favourite single 'Rich Girls' and other pervasive gems of American Indie Rock, it's The Virgins, of course. After forming in 2005, the band's infectious EP wormed its way into the underground of New York City, their home. Signing to Atlantic in 2008, the band released their first album, The Virgins.
The Virgins released their sophomore album Strike Gently in March 2013, supporting it with tours across the U.S. and internationally. The band played their biggest shows while supporting The Killers on their last two American tours. The support slot culminated in what would be The Virgins last hometown performance, a sold out show at Madison Square Garden.
The band spilt up in late 2013, with lead singer Donald Cumming saying: "There's nothing I'd hoped to do with The Virgins that we haven't done. It's been an incredible experience and I want to thank everyone who was a part of it, but now it's time to move on. I'll see you in my dreams."
