UNKLE Launches a Summer Tour

James Lavelle’s collaborative alter-ego tours their new material.
May 24, 2010, 5:30pm

The thump of foreboding beats can now be heard across Europe and the UK, like a distant electronic pied piper calling you to come follow. Yes, James Lavelle has taken his pet project UNKLE on tour, playing music from their ingeniously crafted new album Where Did The Night Fall, which features a range of artists like Big in Japan, South, and Screaming Trees singer Mark Langegan. It has made for an intimate, accomplished work clashing dance music styles with psychedelia. Combine this with their stellar back catalog (five albums in total) and you have a rip-roaring night to remember. The remaining tour dates are below, but be sure to check out the UNKLE site to purchase tickets and to be kept abreast of updates.
