Two Door Cinema Club To Play Olympia Theatre
Following the announcement of their fourth studio album False Alarm last week (out June 14), Two Door Cinema Club today reveal plans for an eight date UK & Ireland headline tour this October.
Best known for singles ‘Undercover Martyn’, ‘Something Good Can Work’ and their latest track ‘Satellite’, the tour will see the Bangor three piece stop-off at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre. The date for the gig is October 15.
Promotion for False Alarm says the LP finds the band gloriously unshackled and creatively instinctive, scanning and satirising the social and environmental woes of 2019 and beyond through the prism of wonderfully off-kilter pop. It sees them simultaneously borrowing from and warping elements of future pop, disco, rock, funk and soul.
Recorded in sessions between London and LA with producer Jacknife Lee (U2, REM, The Killers), promotional materials say False Alarm is an LP that takes the familiar and twists it, to startling and stimulating effect. It all makes for a wide-eyed, culture-encompassing leap forward for the band, a record liable to break, ruin and remould pop in 2019.
Tickets for the Olympia concert go on sale Friday, May 10 at 9am. They cost from €37.65 and can be purchased via Ticketmaster.
