Tickets on sale Friday at 9am

Watch the introduction to the band ‘Kagoule and The Gang.’

NME ★★★★ “…never anything short of exhilarating“
MOJO ★★★★ “Superior grunge schooled rock…”
Kerrang! ★★★★ “… the potential here is terrifying”
Rock Sound ★★★★   “… impressively confident and well realized”

Kagoule have announced their first full UK headline tour for November/December this year. Nottingham’s notorious live performers will embark on a 18 date tour of the UK giving fans the chance to experience tracks from the critically acclaimed debut album “Urth” which charted at #8 in the Official UK Album Vinyl Charts and was joyously received by both fans and the press including rave reviews in MOJO, Clash, NME, Kerrang!, DiS and RockSound plus an honourable inclusion in the Rough Trade Album Club.

Prior to the UK headline tour, the highly rated three piece will also be heading across the Atlantic for a couple of NYC gigs before taking their unmistakable Alt-Rock sound around mainland Europe including a host of dates supporting Sub Pop Grungers METZ.

To celebrate the tour announcement Kagoule have also offered up two new live tracks from Urth which were recorded for John Kennedy in an XFM Session back in July and are available to stream right now for free on sound cloud.

Frontman and lyricist Cai Burns said:  “We are readying the ship as I speak. Lawrenci The Hands has made ingenious advancements to our vessel which will allow us to travel considerably farther than what we thought possible only a month ago. This morning at sunrise the Sea Dogs spoke with the Sea Gods. They seem to be in a pleasant mood and have given their divine word that no harm will befall us. The children of the waters will not toy with life on this voyage. We will be with you soon. May you continue in good health and spirits.”

The band have consistently impressed live, and developed something of a fearsome live reputation having shared stages with acts including The Who, Johhny Marr, Sleaford Mods, The Wytches, Iceage, METZ, Sebadoh and Drenge plus a performance at Glastonbury Festival.
