DIY and Dr. Martens are teaming up for round two of the #STANDFORSOMETHING tour.
The Dr. Martens #STANDFORSOMETHING Tour in association with DIY returns this autumn, set to lay waste to cities up and down the country. Last year saw Young Guns, Lower Than Atlantis, Spector, Gnarwolves and more taking over some of the UK’s best venues for the sweaty, raucous, super-intimate gigs - and 2014’s leg is similarly not to be missed.
Leeds fivesome Eagulls will be headlining the Cardiff date of the tour, and they’re looking forward to bringing their self-titled debut album to the lucky few who’ll see them there.
Over in Newcastle meanwhile, Aussies Tonight Alive are making an appearance during a short visit to our shores.
Live circuit veterans Funeral For A Friend will be rocking up for the northernmost date on the tour, in Edinburgh; longtime DIY favourites Los Campesinos! will pack out the tiny confines of our Birmingham stop; and the Liverpool leg will be headlined by We Are The Ocean.
But that’s not all: a sixth date will take place in London with a very special yet to be revealed headliner. There will also be a slew of support bands revealed over the coming months. Keep an eye on diymag.com and drmartens.com/standforsomethingtour for all the details.
