Athlete have announced plans to celebrate the 10 years that have passed since the release of Vehicles and Animals, the band’s first album. The Mercury nominated album, released in 2003, was an indie-pop masterpiece that was jam packed full of catchy, feel-good anthems and earned them a loyal and dedicated fan base that have stuck with them ever since.
Currently focusing on other projects, the band could not resist the opportunity to mark the special anniversary with a string of gigs next year. These shows will be their first in 2 years and will consist of all the album tracks including singles ‘You Got The Style’, ‘Westside’, ‘Beautiful’ and ‘El Salvador’. Fans can also expect a selection of other hits such as ‘Wires’, ‘Half Light’, ‘Superhuman Touch’ plus a few surprises chucked in for good measure.
The dates are:
8 May – Cambridge, The Junction
9 May – Bristol O2 Academy
10 May – London, Shepherd’s Bush Empire
11 May – Manchester, The Ritz
12 May – Birmingham, O2 Academy 2
