Following their appearance at this year’s Reading and Leeds Festival, English rock band Basement have confirmed UK tour dates for October.
The new dates break the indefinite hiatus the band took in 2012 and recently released new EP ‘Further Sky’. The EP breaks Basement’s musical silence following their final acclaimed 2012 full-length Colourmeinkindess. Boasting two new songs and a cover of Suede’s Animal Nitrate, the EP updates the band’s alternative rock explorations with a decidedly British flavour.
Recorded spring 2014 at North London’s Livingston Studio (The Clash, Bjork, Jesus and Mary Chain), new tracks Summer’s Colour and Jet build upon past work adding more complex interwoven melodies touched with the subtle psychedelic tendencies of Swervedriver and Failure. Animal Nitrate provides the perfect cousin to Basement’s originals, operating in the same melodic headspace with lively instrumentals and a shimmering chorus.
Basement’s new UK tour dates follow shows in Australia and the USA this summer.
