Rolo Tomassi announce tour and free live EP

By | Published on Tuesday 10 March 2009

I’m not sure announcing a Rolo Tomassi tour as new is strictly true, given that they seem to be doing nothing but touring at the moment, but what the hell, they are the best live band in the UK at the moment.

So, it pleases us greatly to announce their brand new tour, which will snake its way around the country under the banner ‘The Northern Alliance’ in April and May. Support on the tour comes from Grammatics and Pulled Apart By Horses, except in Ireland and Leeds.

There are no dates announced for the capital as yet, but the band say they will be announcing “a very special event in London” soon.

As a little extra bonus, the band are giving away a free live EP to anyone who pre-orders tickets through their MySpace page –

The tracklist for the EP is:

Oh, Hello Ghost
I Love Turbulance
Cirque Du Funk
