fmf_batforlashesTickets go on sale tomorrow

Natasha Khan will continue bringing her intergalactic battles with alter-ego Pearl to life this October with another round of UK tourdates. Kicking off at the Bournemouth Opera House on October 1st and winding down at the HMV Picture House in Edinburgh on the 20th, this latest jaunt follows almost universal praise for March/April’s unveiling of the impressively beefed up live interpretations of this year’s Two Suns, and should capitalise on the almost inevitable Barclaycard Mercury Prize nomination next month (and, perhaps, victory in September). The two-night residency at London’s Roundhouse on October 5–6 should be mighty special.

In the meantime, the band’s prolonged assault on the summer festival circuit is still ongoing, with upcoming appearances scheduled for Latitude and the iTunes Festival in July, followed by Electric Picnic and Bestival in September. A headlining date at Somerset House takes place on July 16th. Full details of the October tour below. Tickets go on sale from 9am tomorrow.
