Clean Bandit Announce Biggest UK Headline Tour To Date In October 2013

Following their amazing Glastonbury Festival performance last weekend, Clean Bandit have announced a UK headline tour, which will take place throughout October. The run of dates kick off at Nottingham's Bodega on October 20, following with shows in Leeds, Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham, London (The Electric), Brighton and Belfast, before finishing up at Dublin's Academy 2 on October 30. Tickets will be available from the band's official website on Wednesday 10 July at 9am. This month, the quartet will also be playing a sold-out show at London's XOYO on July 17 and they'll release their new single 'Dust Clears' on July 29.

Clean Bandit have kicked off the summer by playing at various festivals up and down the country, and most recently stormed the stages at Field Day and Glastonbury. The band are currently gearing up for their next single release with 'Dust Clears', out July 29 via Atlantic Records, which is currently amounting spins on Radio 1's C List. The video for the track was directed, produced and created by the band, and references a painting by Walter Raeburn called The Skating Minister. 'Dust Clears' sees producer Jack Patterson come to the forefront as the lead vocalist for the first time. The EP will feature remixes from Thom alt-J, Russ Chimes and Jack Savidge.

Earlier this year, the collective stormed the charts with their first Atlantic Records release and top 20 single 'Mozart's House', which has now sold over 80,000 copies to date. The track soared to #1 on the iTunes dance chart upon its release. Earlier this year the quartet supported Disclosure on their UK tour, opened for Alt-J for two nights at London's Shepherds Bush Empire, remixed Rudimental's #1 single 'Waiting All Night', DJ'd at the Warehouse Project in Manchester with SBTRKT and performed on Radio 1's Live Lounge. Clean Bandit will be in full swing on the festival circuit this summer having been confirmed for practically every major UK festival.
