The semi-mythical act play a headline gig ahead of their Field Day slot.
Australian electronic outfit The Avalanches have expanded their global comeback tour with a one-off gig at London’s Oval Space on June 9.
The group’s return was formally announced last month, 16 years after the release of their now legendary debut Since I Left You. They will also appear at London’s Field Day festival and Primavera in Barcelona among other dates.
The Oval Space gig is the group’s only non-festival performance to be announced so far, with additional slots at Wild Life Festival, Fuji Rock and Splendour in the Grass. Tickets for the event will go on sale at 10am on May 20.
There’s no official word on whether The Avalanches have a new album on the way, but Danny Brown said he’d recorded a song called ‘Frank Sinatra’ for the group back in 2012, and Ariel Pink is also rumoured to have worked with them.
