Headline shows & Special Guests to Interpol…
New single “Teen Angst” available on May 23rd
French indie innovators M83 return to UK live action in March in support of the widely acclaimed album BEFORE THE DAWN HEALS US. They play a series of dates as special guests to THE SECRET MACHINES, two headline shows and a just added date as personally invited guests of INTERPOL at Brixton Academy on April 9th. These support dates come after already highly successful shows alongside !!! and THE RAPTURE. M83 have also completed requested Remixes of the likes of BLOC PARTY, PLACEBO and GOLDFRAPP amongst others over the past few months.

The dates in March/April precede the bands forthcoming US tour which culminates in a show at the Coachella Festival in late April alongside the BAUHAUS, NEW ORDER and THE COCTEAU TWINS. In America the buzz surrounding the band is growing on a daily basis with BEFORE THE DAWN HEALS US currently at #1 in the massively important US College Radio Chart. In the UK the album BEFORE THE DAWN HEALS US has received widespread praise across the board since its release, combined with mainstream support from Radio 1/xfm/MTV amongst others and continued specialist and club reactions (including number 1 in the Zzub Club Chart).
The band will release album standout TEEN ANGST as a new single in May on Gooom/Labels. TEEN ANGST will be backed by mixes courtesy of Gooom label mates MONTAG and hot new UK electronic wunderkid NATHAN FAKE, plus unreleased track ADDICTED TO SELF MUTILATION.
