Naked and Famous Announce Sheffield Date

THE Naked And Famous continue their ascent after a full summer of festival action with a return to the UK for the following shows.

The New Zealanders picked up the Philip Hall Radar Award at the Shockwaves NME Awards in February as well as a place on the BBC Sound of 2011 longlist.

Their album 'Passive Me Aggressive You' (Fiction) has received rave reviews as have their recent sell-out shows around the country.

Formed in New Zealand, in various Auckland bedrooms by David Beadle, Thom Powers, Aaron Short, Jesse Wood and Alisa Xayalith, The Naked & Famous took the DIY approach, writing and recording the majority of their music in those very same suburban houses.

Its loving, careworn aesthetic was preserved as the tracks were mixed and mastered in the US before release.

The tour dates are:

Wed 9th Nov - University Anson Rooms, Bristol
Thu 10th Nov - Roundhouse, London
Sat 12th Nov - Leadmill, Sheffield
Tue 15th Nov - 02 ABC 1, Glasgow
Wed 16th Nov - Empire, Middlesbrough
Thu 17th Nov - Academy 2, Manchester
Sat 19th Nov - HMV Institute, Birmingham
Sun 20th Nov - Junction, Cambridge
Mon 21st Nov - Waterfront, Norwich
Wed 23rd Nov - Pyramids Centre, Portsmouth

Tickets are £14 on all shows apart from London which is £16.50.
