TWIN ATLANTIC announce UK & Ireland April tour


Announce UK and Ireland Headline tour in April 2012 

2011 was one hell of a year for Twin Atlantic and 2012 shows no signs of them slowing down! Since the release of their spectacular debut album, “Free” - the biggest selling record by a UK rock band in 2011 - the pedal has been to the metal.

From gracing the covers of Kerrang! and Rock Sound magazine, to performing in front of thousands of people at festivals all over Europe and headlining venues such as Glasgow Academy (and selling it out!), this hard working quartet have catapulted themselves into the new year already. Recently named as the iTunes Rewind Rock Artist of The Year and currently on the BBC Radio 1 A list with their blistering single “Free” - Twin Atlantic are thrilled to announce that they will head out this April on their biggest UK and Ireland headline tour!

“Our tour at the end of 2011 was incredible but we feel like we still have room to grow. It's been a slow and steady race for us over the last few years and this tour will mark our 5 year anniversary as a band! The fans that we have gathered over that time is something we are really proud of and we can't wait to have you all, along with new intrigued human beings, in the same room again so we can experience the feeling that makes being in this band so damn exciting. Perhaps new music? Perhaps a bigger show? Perhaps exploding planets and flying cats dressed like babies? It's all a work in progress to make this our best tour yet! Ridiculous tour name to follow.” - Twin Atlantic.
