Gig listings can be an intriguing thing.
After all, how often does a new band or artist announce a 'British tour' which doesn't go further North than Watford?
Well, the Satellite Tour aims to change this. A reaction to the increasing narrow live circuit, the venture brings together three breaking artists and places them in some less travelled venues.
Tackling shows in places such as Ipswich, Rotherham, Dumfries and Aberystwyth, the Satellite Tour is a return to the days when new talent would earn their stripes via hardworking hours on the road.
Featuring a revolving line up, the Satellite tour will boast appearances from rising four piece Sons & Lovers. Elsewhere, Eliza & The Bear will take part following a lengthy spell on the road with Paramore while singer-songwriter Fred Page is also due to take part.
It's a broad, intriguing bill and - to really engage with fans in this recession climate - entry prices have been pegged at £4. Yep, four whole pounds - that's the price of a pint in some venues...
