Yesterday Doves announced their Best-Of Australian tour dates, and now fellow Manchunian post-rock stalwarts I Am Kloot have revealed they’ll be embarking on their first ever Australian tour off the back of their slot at Playground Weekender this February. Their latest album Sky At Night was produced by Elbow’s Guy Garvey and Craig Potter, and was nominated for the 2010 Mercury Prize.
Sideshow dates have also been announced for Californian all-girl quartet The Like whose retro Sixties outfits and cool associates (designer Zac Posen, Gia Coppola, Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings) have had them regularly name-dropped as a band to watch. Tour dates below.
