Area 11 head out on their second tour of the UK this November, to coincide with the release of their as-yet-untitled album.
The band last took to the road in July this year, pretty much selling out across the board (their London Barfly show sold out in less than 48 hours, with cites such as Manchester, Birmingham and Brighton not taking much longer). The Winter Tour sees Area 11 stepping up the venue capacities significantly, with the inclusion of shows such as 500 capacity London Underworld on the itinerary.
The December dates will take the form of special ‘Christmas Party’ shows, with the band ending the tour with their biggest hometown show to date (not counting supporting Enter Shikari at their recent 1500 capacity sold out Motion ’warm-up’ show for Download Festival).
Area 11 will be joined on the tour by support from Birmingham’s Myth City.
Area 11 are a four piece rock band from Bristol, UK, formed in 2011. Despite existing “under the radar” as far as the mainstream and music media is concerned, the band has amassed the kind of social media following that would put artists considered many times bigger to shame, enabling the band to sell out shows, records and merchandise runs in quiet semi-anonymity. Their most recent EP Underline, for example, debuted at number 8 in the rock charts last November.
2015 sees the band making its first tentative steps into a bigger world, which started with a short run of summer shows and the announcement of their second full-length album.
