B-52s Announce “Funplex”

UK Dates Rumoured

Legendary US surf-punk group The B-52s are set to return with their first new studio album in sixteen years, and to celebrate the band are set to play some rare live dates.

Hailing from Athens, Georgia the band played a day-glo brand of party-rock at a time when the prevailing trends ran towards dissonance and screaming vocals. Reforming last year, the band recorded comeback album “Funplex” with producer Steve Osbourne, and it is a fresh blast of surf punk.

A world tour will be timed to coincide with the album’s release, and the B-52s will play the following UK dates:

July 21st – Glasgow, Carling Academy
July 22nd – Manchester, Carling Academy
July 23rd – Birmingham, Carling Academy
July 24th – London, The Roundhouse
