When you first hear the word “superorganism”, you might think more of a virulent, plague-causing bacterium than a haphazardly-organized yet wildly successful avant garde electro-pop band. But the moniker does fit eight-member international music collective Superorganism, whose “shared house side project” grew organically into something of an internet sensation in 2017. The band have recently announced details of their debut self-titled LP, along with a massive list of worldwide tour dates including stops in the UK and Ireland. ‘Superorganism’ is due out on the 2nd of March via Domino Records and will feature hit track ‘Something for Your M.I.N.D.’ You can watch the band’s promo video for recent single ‘Everybody Wants to be Famous’ just below the tour date listing.

Tickets for the following shows are available now. In addition to the list below, Superorganism will play at London’s Jazz Cafe on the 15th of February, and they are scheduled to appear at Dublin’s Forbidden Fruit Festival on the 2nd of June. A full listing of Superorganism’s upcoming live shows, including dates in continental Europe and North America, can be found on the band’s official Web page.

Monday 5th March 2018 – Birmingham Institute 2
Wednesday 7th March 2018 – Manchester Gorilla

The Lost Brothers / January and February 2018 UK/Irish Tour

 
By on Thursday, 2nd November 2017 at 9:00 am
 

Irish folk duo The Lost Brothers have announced details of their forthcoming new album ‘Halfway Towards a Healing’, due out on the 26th of January next year. Mark McCausland and Oisin Leech recorded this latest LP in Tucson, Arizona, and its first teaser track has the distinct feel of the American Old West about it, with stark instrumentation, distantly reverberant vocals and a faintly Spanish-tinged rhythm in the guitar line. In case you missed it, our own editor Mary has written a full review of that first single, ‘Echoes in the Wind’, right back here.

Following the release of ‘Halfway Towards a Healing’, The Lost Brothers will embark on a tour of the UK and Ireland, including stops in London, Dublin and Belfast. Prior to their early 2018 dates, McCausland and Leech will play a handful of warm up shows in Navan and Omagh in mid-December. They have also announced a single American date, in New York on the 12th of March 2018. You can find a full listing of The Lost Brothers’ upcoming live shows on their official Facebook.

Frightened Rabbit / ‘Midnight Organ Fight’ 10th Anniversary March 2018 Tour

 
By on Tuesday, 31st October 2017 at 9:00 am
 

Yup, we’re getting old. Scottish indie rockers Frightened Rabbit‘s seminal sophomore album ‘Midnight Organ Fight’ will reach its 10th anniversary next year. To celebrate, the band have announced a trio of tour dates in the UK next March. They’ll be playing the album in full each night and for the very first time. Of the LP, the band say, “This album holds a dear place in our collective heart. It was the one that allowed us to believe that we could do this band thing. Really do it. It’s the one that made the people in front of us SING. Really sing. It’s the album I still talk about most with people I meet at our shows. The wee bugger will not go away, and we are alright with that.”

We imagine the tickets will go quickly for these gigs, so don’t snooze. A presale for begins tomorrow, Wednesday the 1st of November; the general sale will follow on Friday, the 3rd of November. The band’s most recent album, their fifth called ‘Painting of a Panic Attack’, was released last year. You can read Carrie’s review of the long player through here.
