PROTOMARTYR ANNOUNCE 2016 TOURDATES AND SHARE NPR TINY DESK CONCERT
THE AGENT INTELLECT OUT NOW ON HARDLY ART
Protomartyr have just returned from an extensive tour in Europe, and after getting some much needed rest over the festive season, will be back to road-dogging it across the globe in 2016.
Touring in support of their critically acclaimed third record, The Agent Intellect (Hardly Art), they’ll begin by making up some cancelled dates in late January before embarking on a mammoth month-long tour. Joining them for extended stints will be bands of such ass-kicking nature as Amanda X, Priests, Spray Paint, and Chastity Belt.
A full list of dates can be found here, with new UK dates as follows…

1 April – Liverpool, Magnet

3 April – London, 100 Club
Also, NPR Music has shared their Tiny Desk Concert that the band recorded at the NPR office in October. Watch their amazing stripped-down performance below, featuring Agent Intellect stand-outs “Why Does It Shake?” and “The Devil In His Youth,” as well as a glorious oldie from their first record, “Three Swallows.” Pitchfork also recently shared a powerful fully plugged-in performance from an event in New York City. It’s hard to dispute the band’s power live after watching “I’ll Take That Applause.” Now’s the time to discover one of the best and most affecting records of the year.
