Bayside add extra UK dates


Bayside will play extra dates in the UK around their Slam Dunk appearances in May, the New York band have confirmed.

They were already lined up to play the festival on the 23, 24 and 25 – now they’ve added seven more shows, kicking off in Glasgow on the 20th of the month as part of a wider European tour.

Mainman Anthony Raneri says: “We can’t wait to finally get over to the UK and Europe for a headline tour. We’ve been touring there for 10 years and have never given the fans a chance to see us play for more than 30 or 40 minutes.

“Touring internationally is still always a rush for me. It’s such a trip to see people singing along to songs so far away from where I wrote them.”

The band’s last album was last year’s Cult, the follow-up to 2011’s Killing Time.
