Alt-J have announced a five date tour of the UK this September which will follow the release of the band’s third album, Relaxer. “This September we’ll be taking a few trips to the seaside, playing gigs in Brighton, Margate, Bournemouth, Weston-Super-Mare and Blackpool. Fish and chips, penny arcades and Relaxer… See you there?” said Joe Newman.

One of the most successful British bands of the millennium are Joe Newman, Gus Unger-Hamilton and Thom Green. The band have headlined festivals across the globe and sold out London’s O2 Arena and New York’s legendary Madison Square Garden on their last tour.

The band’s third studio album Relaxer, now available, follows 2014’s Grammy and Brit Award-nominated album This Is All Yours, and their 2012 Mercury Prize and Ivor Novello Award-winning debut, An Awesome Wave. Between them, the two records have sold in excess of two million copies and their songs have been streamed more than one billion times.
