The Avalanches – London Oval Space tickets
Semi-mythical Australian group The Avalanches have added another date to their 2016 series of ‘comeback’ gigs.
The reclusive electronic outfit – released their debut album Since I Left You back in 2000 – broke their 16 years of silence last month announcing a series of festival shows this summer. Now they have added a headline date at London’s Oval Space on 9 June.
The gig at Oval Space is so far The Avalanches’ only non-festival date announced so far, with tickets going on sale tomorrow (Friday 20 May) at 10am.
The band are confirmed to play the following festivals:
June 3 – Barcelona, Primarava Sound
June 9 – London, Oval Space
June 11 – Brighton City Airport, Wild Life Festival
June 12 – London, Field Day
July 22 – Byron Bay, Splendour in the Grass
July 24 – Yuzawa, Fuji Rock Festival
So far there has been no official word on any new material from The Avalanches, but rumours have been growing for the past year or so that they have been working on a new album – so it’s safe to assume they will be releasing something to coincide with these gigs.
All we have from the band so far is the above picture of a butterfly, which we guess will be part of the artwork for their new LP/EP/whatever.
