Tour News: Twin Atlantic, ARW, Ann my Guard, As Sirens Fall

More tour news as we approach the annual post-festival silly season of November. In past years we’ve had ridiculous situations such as eight or nine major bands playing in Glasgow in a single week. Two years ago, we had no fewer than six major headline shows to pick from in a single evening. Time to start plotting things on your calendar…

Cunningly skipping November by playing in October then December are Twin Atlantic. The second “half” of the tour includes three dates at hometown venue Glasgow Barrowlands – I don’t recall any band doing this before! They’ll be supporting their new album GLA (probably not a coincidence that this is the airport code for Glasgow), due out on September 9th.
