After some time away working on new material, Marmozets’ incendiary live show is back on the road this week as they embark upon a warm-up tour ahead of their sets at this year’s Reading and Leeds Festivals. With their current warm up dates entirely sold-out in advance, the band can now announce details of a headline tour that commences in October.
The tour – scheduled below – comes as Marmozets prepare to launch their eagerly anticipated second album which has been produced by Gil Norton (Foo Fighters, Pixies). The album follows their 2014 debut The Weird and Wonderful Marmozets which earned them Kerrang!’s coveted Album Of The Year award as they became the hottest new band on the Brit alt-rock scene.
Further acclaim for the album came from The Guardian (“Songs flit around from riff to riff, as if Marmozets were bursting to fill each song with ideas”) and Q (“A very impressive, ambitious debut”), while Noisey highlighted vocalist Becca Macintyre as someone who “could be instrumental in a big change for British rock… Becca is challenging British rock and setting a high bar for other bands because she’s just an amazing fronthuman.”
“Everyone’s so excited to get back on the road, we really can’t wait,” says guitarist Jack Bottomley as the band’s momentum gains traction. “We’re all in a really good place and we’re totally ready for what’s to come.”
