Pluto can today reveal that Scottish indie/rock band The View will be stopping in Preston as part of their new tour, playing songs from the freshly released album “Seven Year Set List” in 53 Degrees this December.
Fresh from a hectic summer that saw the band support the legendary Rolling Stones in front of 50,000 people in Glasgow as well as a host of festival appearances including T in the Park, the band will be embarking on yet another UK tour.
The long-haired rockers, who all met while at Dundee, exploded onto the music scene in 2005 with hit singles ‘Same Jeans’ and NME Best Track of the Year, ‘Wasted Little DJs’.
In 2009, they released their second studio album, ‘What Bitch?’, which reached the UK Top 5 and that was followed up by the guitar-pop heavy, ‘Bread and Circuses’, in 2011.
Shortly after ‘Bread and Circuses’, the band parted way with their record company and signed for a new label, Cooking Vinyl.
Reinvigorated, the band went back into the studio and produced some of their best work to date with the brilliant ‘Cheeky for a Reason’ that stormed into the Top 10 and reinstated The View as one of the best things to come out of Scotland since Irn-Bru.
The new album, which lead singer Kyle Falconer vehemently denies is a greatest hits compilation, is made up of some of their favourite tracks to play live. The likes of ‘Wasted Little DJ’s’, ‘Same Jeans’, ‘Shock Horror’, ‘How Long’, ‘Superstar Tradesman’ and ‘The Don’ all made the cut along with four brand new tracks, ‘Kill Kyle’, ‘Dirty Magazine’, ‘Tight Hopes’ and ‘Standard’ to make for a sensational album that is filled with non-stopped addictive indie-rock-pop.
The band will be appearing at 53 Degrees on Friday 13 December with tickets priced at £13.50 and will go on sale on Friday 19 July at 9 a.m.
For now, why not enjoy the brilliance of ‘Wasted Little DJs’
