Following on from the rapid sell-out of both their headline Autumn UK tour and two dates at O2 Shepherds Bush Empire in January, Alt-J have announced a new UK tour for May 2013, which concludes with their biggest headline show to date at Brixton Academy.
The band released their stunning debut album 'An Awesome Wave' in May to widespread acclaim that saw it touted as the "hottest debut album" by NME and hailed as "exhilarating and emotive" by Q magazine.
This event takes place at O2 Academy Newcastle, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Leeds band alt-j were formerly known as Films, but changed their name to the symbol that you get from the Mac shortcut alt+j.
alt-j are Joe Newman (guitar/vocals), Gus Unger-Hamilton (keyboards) and Thom Green (drums). The band released their debut album, 'An Awesome Wave', to critical acclaim in May 2012, and went on to win the Mercury Music Prize in November 2012. The album was also nominated for British Album of the Year at the Brit Awards in February 2013, one of three nominations the band received, and received the Ivor Novello Album Award in May 2013. The critically acclaimed 'This Is All Yours' followed in 2014.
