Following recent support dates with Jack White and a headline slot on the BBC Introducing stage at T In The Park, The Amazing Snakeheads have announced a full UK tour for October 2014, including their biggest London show to date at The Electric Ballroom on the 23rd.


The Glasgow band will also be playing Secret Garden Party, Stockton Weekender and Reading & Leeds festivals over the summer as well as Bestival in September. Full live dates are below, with newly announced shows in bold.

The band’s debut album, Amphetamine Ballads, which saw its UK release in April, was featured on Pitchfork as their Advance Stream last week to coincide with the US release of the album. A monument to the redemptive powers of rock 'n' roll - full of rage, romance and dark humour - Amphetamine Ballads is an uncompromising, astonishingly visceral record. Purchase it from Dom Mart HERE or from iTunes HERE.

You can watch the video for the band’s most recent single, Nighttime, HERE.
