Sons And Daughters follow a busy summer of festival appearances – and a tour Stateside – with their second UK tour of 2005 in November.
The Glasgow quartet’s latest album, The Repulsion Box, has just been released in the U.S to rave reviews across the board. The band take off for the States later this week where they’ll play a clutch of their own shows plus dates with Bright Eyes before heading off on the road with The Decemberists.
Their autumn UK tour includes a very special show in their hometown of Glasgow – ‘Rama Lama with Sons And Daughters’ featuring special guests and Djs – plus a date at London’s Kings College and two shows in Ireland. Full list of dates as follows:
20th, BRIGHTON, Concorde 2
21st, LONDON, Kings College
22nd, MANCHESTER, Academy 3
23rd, NOTTINGHAM, Rescue Rooms
24th, GLASGOW, ABC
26th, BELFAST, Limelight

Sons And Daughters played their biggest UK gig to date last week supporting Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds at Alexandra Palace. Look out for the band’s review of Cave’s show in next week’s NME!
