This autumn will see Dr. Martens take their #STANDFORSOMETHING tour to Europe, with a series of five gigs in five countries. Pulled Apart By Horses will headline fresh from the release of their new studio album ‘Blood’, due a week before the tour kicks off in Paris on 8th September.
Now Dinosaur Pile-Up - who last year introduced a new bassist, Jim Cratchley, formerly of Tribes - have been revealed as main support. They’ll be joined by emerging support bands from both the UK and local countries. The tour precedes the 2014 leg of the UK #STANDFORSOMETHING tour, in association with DIY.
In addition to the new line up announcement, Dr. Martens are giving one lucky fan the chance to win tickets to the tour to watch Pulled Apart By Horses and Dinosaur Pile Up in Paris on 8th September. The winners will also get the chance to visit DM’s original factory in Northamptonshire to make their own pair of vintage DMs. Enter here.
The European dates are as follows:
08 Paris, La Maroquinerie
09 Hamburg, Molotow Exil
10 Copenhagen, Rust
11 Stockholm, Debaser Strand
13 Amsterdam, Bitterzoet
What do you stand for, Dinosaur Pile-Up?
“I’d love to say we stand for something profound, but really we’re just three dudes that wanna kick it as hard as we can. No agenda, no egos. We’ve never fit in too much and that’s why we stick together. Weird is good. Be your own gang.”
What do you stand for, Pulled Apart By Horses?
“We stand for using rock music as a joyous, cathartic release. Uniting every beautiful soul in the room. And riffs. Lots of riffs.”
Tickets will go on sale from 14th July at local venues.
