The Sunshine Underground are set to return, and having confirmed three live dates earlier in the week (more here) have now expanded their UK assault to a full tour.
The band have been busy for the last year, recording the as-yet-untitled follow-up to breakthrough debut ‘Raise The Alarm’, set for release this summer.
A mash of hedonistic hacienda synths and crunching rock riffs, the band’s debut propelled them from the Leeds gig circuit onto widespread acclaim and tours with sonic brethren The Happy Mondays.
Though there has been little news on the group’s next album, a recent posting of demos on their myspace saw them delve into darker territory, with possible song titles slated for the release set to be ‘ “Epic’, ‘Darktime’ and ‘Animals’. The Leeds four-piece also recently worked with FC Kahuna , the results of which can be heard on their website.
