American Football tour UK at last

Reunited emo outfit American Football have confirmed their first-ever tour of the UK.

The band split in 2000 following the release of their self-titled debut album the previous year. Mike Kinsella, Steve Lamos and Steve Holmes got back together earlier in 2014, with the addition of Mike’s cousin Nate Kinsella.

They’re currently touring the US and will arrive for three UK shows in May, with tickets on sale at 10am on Monday.

Tour dates

May 14: London Electric Ballroom

May 15: Leeds Brudenell Social Club

May 16: Manchester Gorilla

Martin Kielty

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
