Electrelane

ELECTRELANE ANNOUNCE INTIMATE FANS-ONLY GIG VIA PODCAST.


Electrelane are moving from strength to strength. Soon to be out on the road
with the infamous Arcade Fire before heading onto a number of their own headline
dates around the world, the new album No Shouts No Calls will be released in
April - the first fresh material since 2005's Axes. And still they continue to
tease and tantalize us with yet another all too exciting announcement.

Electrelane will be playing a very intimate and strictly fans-only gig within
the next two weeks. There are a very limited 100 tickets available and the only
way to get your hands on a pair is to check out all the details announced inside
this month's too pure podcast.
