Django Django at Glasslands, March 2012 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
As posted previously, Scotland's Django Django, who are giving their excellent debut LP a US release on September 25 via Domino imprint Ribbon Music (John Maus, Lower Dens), will be returning to North America for a tour here, which kicks off in Chicago next week. That tour includes the previously discussed NYC show at Bowery Ballroom on October 2, which Lemonade is opening. Tickets for that show are still available, and the band just announced that they'll stick around to play another NYC show on October 4 at Knitting Factory. Tickets for the Knitting Factory show are on sale now.
The US release of their album, which will be available as gatefold double LP and CD, will include four bonus tracks, "Drumforms," "Bail Hop," a killer dub mix of "Skies Over Cairo" by Adrian Sherwood's On U Sound and "Default (Tom Furse Remix)." The album is available for pre-order now.
A spotify stream of their album, a couple videos, and an updated list of dates are below.
