Five-piece are back with their fifth album, titled 'V' ,and will tour this October
The band first appeared in the mid-noughties and were instantly hyped, appearing on magazine covers before they'd even released their first EP. Their striking image, dapper and gothic, and the new wave influenced post punk of tracks like 'Jack The Ripper' and 'Count In Fives' made their 2007 debut album Strange House a memorable one.
They turned table spectacularly with 2009's Primary Colours, the shoegaze influence and spoken word breakdown of 'Who Can Say' showing a band of musical range. Recent albums Skying and Luminous continued the theme, and singer Faris Badwan says that V has dance, trance and 80s pop influences.
The tour kicks off at Belfast's Mandela Hall on Mon 16 Oct and finishes up in Camden at KOKO on Sun 29 Oct.
