news: Tuesday 8th November 2011

The first line-up of bands for the NME awards tour has been announced. Two Door Cinema Club, Metronomy, Tribes, and Azealia Banks will be playing shows throughout February.

Two Door Cinema Club will headline the annual tour. Since releasing their debut album 'Tourist History' in March 2010, Two Door Cinema Club have rapidly ascended with sold out headlining tours of the UK, US, Europe, Australia, Asia, Japan and South America. Two Door Cinema Club said, "It feels great to be headlining the NME Tour and be amongst what feels like a great line-up as well. We had a taste of the tour when we did the local support slots when the Tour came to Ireland with the Maccabees when we were pretty much just starting out as a band. We feel a real sense of achievement to have made it this far and be one among the incredible list of headliners on the NME Awards Tour."
