On Wednesday 28 May, the band will be celebrating the imminent release of La Petite Mort with a very special one off gig at the Electric Ballroom in London, at which they will be playing much of the new album. Capacity 1000, new songs, new songs! You’ve got to be there. Here’s your chance.

The general sale for the show starts (and I dare say probably finishes!) at 9am on Friday 4 April – you’ll be able to buy from from Gigs and Tours online or over the phone on 0844 811 0051, or Ticketmaster.

And so you can do your sums and budgeting in advance rather than in the panicky heat of the moment, the standard gig tickets will be priced at £32.50 plus fees.
