news: Wednesday 9th June 2010

South London quartet Athlete have announced a 13 date UK tour for November and December to celebrate the release of album 'Athlete: The Singles 01:10' due out in September.

The tour sees Athlete performing all their singles to date from all their acclaimed albums spanning their 10 year career.

Since bouncing to prominence eight years ago with their Mercury-nominated debut, 'Vehicles And Animals' the band have sold more than a million copies of their three hit albums (the other two being 2005's 'Tourist' and 2007's 'Beyond The Neighbourhood'). Last year they made 'Black Swan', which was a musical summary of everything Athlete have been through; the good, the bad and the ugly.

This singles collection and tour will include 'Wires', 'Beautiful', 'You Got The Style', 'Hurricane', "Superhuman Touch', 'Westside' and 'El Salvador' plus many more.
