Hi, what are you looking for?



Metronomy join Two Door Cinema Club, Tribes and Azealia Banks for what looks like another fantastic NME Award Show. Want to get involved? Well read here for full details …

Electro-indie quartet Metronomy have confirmed they will be joining Two Door Cinema Club, Tribes and Azealia Banks on next year’s  2012 NME Awards Tour.

The tour takes place throughout February and promises to showcase this year’s most exciting new acts!

Other previous bands such as The Arctic Monkeys, The Killers, Florence & The Machine, Crystal Castles and The Vaccines have all gone to achieve huge success after performing the NME Award Tour and there is little doubt that the 2012 line up will become equally well known.

A total of 12 shows will be played throughout the UK with the tour kick starting in Glasgow on the 8th February and ending at London’s Brixton Academy on the 25th .

Metronomy were quoted as saying: “It’s pretty exciting to be part of a travelling tour, a bit like a circus or something. It’s been a while since we did a tour this long with the same bands for the whole thing, so hopefully there will be some camaraderie between the bands. Failing that there should be some incredibly violent ‘beefs’ which will make for good reading in the magazine.”

And NME editor Krissi Murison commented: “As far as NME Awards Tour line-ups go, it’s difficult to imagine one more exciting than this or more representative of the cutting edge sounds that will define 2012. Every week in NME we bang on about how brilliant these bands are, and this is an amazing opportunity to see them all on the same bill. Two Door Cinema Club owned the summer, Metronomy recorded arguably the album of the year, Tribes are the future of British indie music and Azealia Banks is, well, pretty much the most exciting new act on the planet. It’s going to be a good one…”
