James And Special Guests Pigeon Detectives Announce UK Tour & Tickets

Fresh from their sell out tour across the UK James will be hitting the road once again this December for a 7 date mini-tour with indie rockers The Pigeon Detectives.

Kicking off at London’s HMV Hammersmith Apollo on Thursday 9th December and rolling through venues in Birmingham, Leeds, Leicester and Glasgow the tour will finish off with a homecoming gig at the Manchester MEN Arena on Saturday 18th December.

Having just released the first of two mini albums, ‘The Night Before’ was only just released recently on Monday April 19th. Containing new studio material it tops a lengthy list of work from the seven-piece band that has produced 10 studio albums, twenty UK Top 40 singles and sold over 12 million albums.

The new album has been described as ‘fearless in comparison to its predecessors’, having been produced by Lee ‘Muddy’ Baker. Inspired by previous work with Brian Eno, using a virtual recording process, the band set-up a file-transfer site to which they all contributed, downloading and updating each other’s efforts at various intervals. Baker knocked things into shape which resulted in a diverse and intriguing album, unlike anything the band has attempted before.

The band will now return to recording following their recent UK tour, where they intend to spend five days in a big room with no overdubs capturing “something spontaneous” while playing naturally together. This will be the foundation of the second part of the mini album which is expected for release on 2nd August entitled ‘The Morning After’.

You can also catch James at some of the world’s biggest festivals this summer, including the Isle of Wight, Latitude and Beautiful Days in the UK.

James will play the following UK dates:

December 2010

9th HMV Hammersmith Apollo, London
10th O2 Academy Brixton, London
12th O2 Academy, Birmingham
14th O2 Academy, Leeds
15th De Montfort Hall, Leicester
17th SECC Hall, Glasgow
18th MEN Arena, Manchester

Tickets are available from 9am on Friday 23rd April.

James - Living In Extraordinary Times (Album Review)
Wed 08 Aug 2018
Listening to 'Living In Extraordinary Times', the thought occurs that indie-pop stalwarts James aren’t dissimilar to a shark. Such is the Manchester octet’s devotion to exploring fresh textures, with an insatiable forward momentum, that if they stop moving it’s likely they’ll immediately shuffle off to the great gig in the sky. Fortunately, if the band’s most recent output - and especially this effort - is anything to by, they won’t be playing chess with the Grim Reaper any time soon.
