Tour: UNKLE Announce Headline Shows

UNKLELast week we told you they were confirmed to be playing Groovin The Moo, now Civil Society and Inertia are proud to announce the exclsuive headline shows of critically acclaimed UK outfit UNKLE. Touring on the back of their fourth studio album in their iconic career, ‘Where Did The Night Fall’, the live band will bring their unique live sound to Australia for the first time since BIG DAY OUT 2008.

Led by James Lavelle, UNKLE is known for a constant evolution in tone & style. The most recent incarnation of UNKLE contains influences from psychedelic rock to afrobeat, and continues their outstanding history of collaboration with a dynamic roster of collaborators, including gravelly voiced legend Mark Lanegan, formerly of Queens of the Stone Age and Screaming Trees; San Francisco psych scene darlings Sleepy Sun; Texan based drone rockers The Black Angels; member of cabaret punk trio Celebration and long time TV On The Radio collaborator Katrina Ford;  ELLE J of dark folk-rock group Dark Horses, and the Los Angeles based art noise-pop trio Autolux . The album also featured former South frontman Joel Cadbury, and former Clayhill vocalist Gavin Clark, both of whom will join UNKLE for their Australian tour.

Recently named one of Dazed Digital’s ‘Best Artists of 2010’, and with a mini album of all new material due to drop in advance of their arrival, UNKLE’s live show returns to Australia with high anticipation. UNKLE will perform four exclusive headline shows, in addition to their Groovin The Moo appearances. Don’t miss your chance to see this incredible artist’s live show in the flesh.
