See English indie rock band Alt-J live in Vancouver (CONTEST)

Apr 20 2017, 12:05 am

The English indie rock band Alt-J is hitting up Vancouver this fall.

The ‘Something Good’ singers will be taking to the stage at the Doug Mitchell Thunderbird Sports Centre on Friday, October 13 in light of their upcoming album RELAXER.

During their North American tour, the band will play shows in Chicago, Portland, Seattle, Edmonton, Calgary, and Toronto, before finishing up in Texas in November.

Formed in 2007, the trendy band features Joe Newman, Gus Unger-Hamilton, and Thom Green. An Awesome Wave, the band’s very first album sold Gold here in Canada and the US, as well as winning the Mercury Prize in the UK.

A regular headliner at music festivals around the world, the band even sold out Madison Square Garden and London’s O2 arena on their last tour. You can expect big things from this year’s show. And the new video for ‘3WW’ off the RELAXER album gives you a cinematic taster, directed by Young Replicant.

Last month, ALT-J released ‘In Cold Blood’ another track from RELAXER, the band’s follow-up album to Grammy-nominated album This Is All Yours.  

You can expect to hear Alt-J play other songs from their upcoming album like ‘Adeline’, ‘Last Year’, ‘Pleader’, ‘Deadcrush’, and ‘Hit Me Like That Snare’. And of course some older tracks to keep you on your toes the entire time.
