100 gecs Announce UK & European Tour Dates
100 gecs have announced details of a new UK and European headline tour for later this year. Tickets for the gigs are on sale now – see the full list of gigs below.
The tour will kick-off in Berlin and will include dates in Milan, Paris and a show at London’s Apollo, along with other UK cities including Bristol, Leeds, Birmingham and Manchester.
The shows are in support of the experimental pop duo’s second album 10,000 Gecs, released back in March on Atlantic Records.
In an interview with Kerrang around the album’s release, vocalist Laura Les reflected on the making of the record, “When we were making the first album, we were just two friends that wanted to make an album, and it was like, ‘We’ll do the goofiest shit and make it hot and whatever.’ And this one, I mean, it’s just a completely different context. We are still two friends that are just trying to make good songs. But I definitely think we’ve matured as people, a bit, since the first one.”
Les also considered how much pressure the duo felt making their second album, “It’s funny, as a music fan you listen to everyone always talking about people’s sophomore albums. And you’re always like, ‘Why did they talk about this?’ But when you’re in that situation and you’ve just completely changed your life, your reaction to that is something that you’ve really got to work through (laughs). Or you’ll go insane… They can take whatever they want… I hope people have fun listening to it. That’s always the goal.”
