Liverpool’s hotly-tipped band Circa Waves join New York collective for NME Award tour dates.
Interpol are to headline the NME Awards Tour 2014 with Austin, Texas at Liverpool’s O2 Academy on March 22.
The New York post-punk collective are joined by Getintothis Ones To Watch Circa Waves plus Temples and Royal Blood.
NME editor, Mike Williams, says: “Here at NME we are always championing the best new talent, so securing three of Britain’s most in demand breakthrough bands to kick off proceedings for the tour is totally exciting.
“Backed up with the world-beating return of Interpol – one of the most important bands to come out of New York ever – is also a massive coup for us.”
Last year’s NME Awards Tour featured Django Django, Miles Kane, Palma Violets and Peace – see Getintothis‘ review and picture gallery here.
Tickets go on presale at 9am on Wednesday 22 January via www.NME.COM and are available on general sale from 9am on Friday 24 January. Tickets include a 50p donation to Teenage Cancer Trust.
