With the celebrated release of their 2008 self-titled EP, teenagersintokyo have positioned themselves as one of the bands to watch in 2010 having sold out venues across the UK, bumped bottoms with the likes of CSS, The Slits and Gossip during some coveted live support slots, and, most recently, topped the Hype Machine chart with The Horrors remix of forthcoming single ‘Peter Pan’ (out next week through Backyard Recordings). Somehow the Aussie quintet have also found time to record their debut album, Sacrifice, due on June 1.

Recorded deep in the Welsh countryside by twice Mercury Prize-nominated Bat For Lashes producer David Kosten, it promises to draw together the sinister synths, pulsing rhythms and screaming guitars which have already seen them compared to such musical legends as Siouxsie & The Banshees and Joy Division. Judge for yourselves if teenagersintokyo are going to set your dancefloor alight on their forthcoming UK shows:

10.03.10 Flowerpot, London
11.03.10 Sound Control, Manchester
17.03.10 Buffalo Bar, Cardiff
27.03.10 Dark Party, Luton
14.05.10 Great Escape Festival, Brighton
21.05.10 Stag & Dagger Festival, London
22.05.10 Sound City Festival, Liverpool
15.06.10 Cambridge Summer Ball, Cambridge
