NME Awards Tour 2012: Two Door Cinema Club + Metronomy + Tribes + Azealia Banks
The infamous NME Awards Tour is back for 2012 and ready to showcase the year's most exciting emerging music talent. Renowned for giving the freshest new acts their first taste of national notoriety – past alumni include Arctic Monkeys, The Killers, Florence & The Machine, Crystal Castles and The Vaccines – 2012's line-up captures the spirit of 2011 and sets the agenda for an explosive forthcoming year of music.
This event takes place at Manchester Academy, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
The Irish Indie-electro-pop three-piece formed in 2007, when founding members Alex Trimble and Sam Halliday met at Bangor Grammar school and subsequently teamed up with Kevin Baird. Characterised by the band's short, sharp songs with punky overtones and indie sensibilities, the County Down boys achieved a UK no.1 album in 2012 with their 2nd release 'Beacon' on French independent label Kitsuné. Their success led them to signing with Parlophone for their 2016 3rd album 'Gameshow'.
Two Door Cinema Club tour dates
The brain-child of disillusioned drummer Joseph Mount, Metronomy are an alternative electronica group producing funk-infused beats, android-esque vocals and highly addictive bass-lines.
Metronomy tour dates
Camden four-piece comprising Johnny Lloyd (vocals, guitar), Jim Cratchley (bass), Miguel Demelo (drums) and Dan White (guitar), heavily influenced by bands such as Nirvana and Pixies. The band have built themselves a cult following in their London hometown.
Tribes tour dates
New York producer/MC and lyricist Azealia Banks has been steadily perfecting her craft and making a name for herself. Her very first recording, "Seventeen", placed her on the radar of many record labels right away. Word about Miss Banks kept spreading online and in the streets until she caught the eye of several record labels and tastemakers. Whether her music hits you with seasoned bars or her angelic voice and hooks, Azealia Banks gives everybody a reason to rewind that track.
