South Londoners ALASKALASKA are playing a special show in the capital alongside Sorry and Grand Pax tomorrow night (2nd August), and have shared a new track and video in advance.
‘Monster’ follows the brilliantly danceable ‘Meateater’ - released back in April - and is a sprawling, reflective cut that stretches their often taut, sprightly indie-pop out to new, more atmospheric places.
So far this year, the band have played for us at the likes of Live At Leeds and Liverpool Sound City, and will play this weekend’s Visions Festival in London before playing a handful more festival shows before the year is out.
View the dates and watch the new video for ‘Monster’ below.
02 London, The Lexington (with Sorry and Grand Pax)
04 London, Visions Festival
31 Cornwall, Knee Deep Festival
20 Oxford, Ritual Union Festival
20 Bristol, Simple Things Festival
26 Barcelona, Primavera Club
28 Madrid, Primavera Club
