Drenge last week played their first live shows of 2015, two low key dates in Leeds and Manchester, leading The Guardian to call them a formidable, exciting live band, whose eruption of garage, grunge and space rock combines with Damned/Misfits-style crooning to turn the jam-packed audience into a heaving mass in minutes. An NME Awards Show takes place in London in February, and the band today announce a full UK tour to begin the week of Undertow’s release. All UK shows are 14+ with tickets priced at £12 (£13.50 in London). Tickets for new dates (below, in bold) go on sale at 9am on Friday 30th January via http://smarturl.it/drengetickets
