Recent Wears The Trousers interviewees First Aid Kit are back in the UK this summer too with a string of festival dates and a new headline show in London. That’s the good news; the bad news is that the anticipated release date of their debut album has been pushed back from the autumn to early next year. We hear the new songs are sounding fantastic though. Patience, patience. 

27.06.09 Park Stage, Glastonbury Festival
19.07.09 Latitude Festival, Southwold
28.07.09 The Lexington, London 
31.07.09 Standon Calling, Hertfordshire
01.08.09 Field Day @ Victoria Park, London
02.08.09 Underage Festival @ Victoria Park, London
16.08.09 Summer Sundae, Leicester
