Tame Impala

Story by Jack Foley

TAME Impala have announce their return to ye olde European stage this October with a rapid run of dates to coincide with the release of the follow up to 2010’s Innerspeaker.

The tour will commence in Germany, moving through France, Belgium, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Austria, Italy, Switzerland and Holland before finishing up in the UK in early November.

Innerspeaker was Tame Impala’s kaleidoscopic debut and one that led them on several globetrotting jaunts that included stops at Glastonbury, T In The Park, Roskilde, not to mention a tonne of sold out club shows the world over, a segment Late Night with Jimmy Fallon in New York, and a place on many an “albums of 2010” list.

Since they last came off the road one half of the band (Jay Watson & Nick Allbrook) have been on the road with Pond, while Kevin Parker went deep into the wormhole making album #2.

Tame Impala’s sophomore record is now complete and will be released in the autumn.

The UK tour dates are (all October/November 2012):

30 – London O2 Academy Brixton

1 – Manchester HMV Ritz
2 – Sheffield Leadmill

Tickets – costing £15 (London, £17.50) go on sale on Friday, June 8 at 9am.
