WU LYF Reveal Dates For UK Tour & Tickets

World Unite! Lucifer Youth Foundation!, Or WU LYF as they prefer to be known, have announced a run of UK shows for June.

The Manchester band, who like to remain anonymous, formed in 2008 and are made up of four friends: Evans Kati, Tom McClung, Ellery Roberts and Joseph Manning. After making a series of early recordings available through their website, WU LYF began a monthly residency at Manchester's An Outlet coffeehouse at the start of 2010, catching the attention of the UK music industry.

The band's first gig outside of Manchester came in July 2010 at the MIDI Festival on the French Riviera. Subsequent shows include France’s Transmusicales Festival, Berlin's Transmediale festival and headline shows in Glasgow and London.

In July 2010 the band announced the formation of the Lucifer Youth Foundation, giving new members an illustrated bandit mask and a 12” LP featuring their tracks 'Concrete Gold' and 'Heavy Pop'. The band started recording their debut album in November 2010. Deciding against the conventional studio set up, they instead took over a disused church in Ancoats, Manchester to record their album. The album has been self-produced.

WU LYF are believed to have declined all record deal offers and instead plan to release their album independently around the world in the summer of 2011.

Catch them live on the below UK dates:

June 9th - Cardiff Clwb Ifor Bach
June 10th - Liverpool Kazimer
June 11th - Sheffield Queens Social Clubs
June 13th - Leicester Y Theatre
June 14th - Glasgow Grand Ole Opry
June 15th - Edinburgh Cabaret Voltaire
June 17th - London Village Underground
