Birmingham’s The Twang have announced a string of new tour dates, they’ll be hitting up Manchester’s Sound Control in October. It’s no secret that weekends are for partying, so with that in mind The Twang have scheduled their upcoming tour around the best part of every week.
Frontman Phil Etheridge explains the reasoning behind this this fun tour decision: “Twang shows have always been more like a party than a gig. The best gigs are always the weekend shows so we thought, ‘lets just do weekends’ – with the odd exception. Well, Thursday’s is the new Friday’s after all!”
Having arrived on the scene a few years back with their indie-rock debut I love it When I feel Like This, this northern five piece made good on their reputation as the most discussed ‘new’ band of 2006. What followed was 2009’s Jewellery Quarter record, their recently released Guapa EP and a whole lot of tour dates.
With a new, yet untitled album in the bag, The Twang head back out on the road before their latest record hits shelves in January 2012. Full details can be found below.
