Lightning Bolt return to London

Lightning Bolt will return to London for a one-off show in June, they’ve confirmed.

The US duo have been hand-picked by Mogwai to appear on a bill curated by the Scots outfit, entitled ATP Season At The Roundhouse.

The show also includes Tortoise, Loop and Wu-Tang Clan’s GZA .

Metal Hammer recently described Lightning Bolt’s seventh album Fantasy Empire as “the strength that emerges from the pair’s cohesive playfulness, back and at its best since 2001.”

Brian Chippendale and Brian Gibson launched the follow-up to 2012’s Oblivion Hunter via Thrill Jockey earlier this month.

ATP Season At The Roundhouse tickets are on sale now.

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, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories 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.
