The Blood Arm announce details of UK tour

LA-based four piece, The Blood Arm, have announced details of a number of UK dates with support coming from the another hotly-tipped band, Pull Tiger Tail. The headline tour follows recent support slots with We Are Scientists and The Sunshine Underground. The band released their debut album, Lie Lover Lie, through City Rockers / Because Music on October 16th. The album was produced by Ariel Rechtshaid (We Are Scientists) in L.A. in the spring of this year and features the single Suspicious Character (“I like all the girls and all the girls like me”).

The full list of dates are as follows:

23rd Leeds Cockpit
24th Cardiff Barfly
25th London SeOne (Insomniacs Ball)
26th Bristol Louisiana*
27th Liverpool Academy
28th Glasgow King Tuts*
29th Manchester Night & Day*
30th Sheffield The Plug*

1st Swindon Brunel Rooms
3rd Belfast Speakeasy
5th Nottingham The Social*
6th London Kings College*
7th Oxford Zodiac
8th Southampton Joiners

* = support from Pull Tiger Tail

Tickets for the shows are £7, except in London where they are £8.50.

Formed in LA in 2002, The Blood Arm quickly grew into one of the most exciting and dynamic fixtures on the LA music scene and in May 2004, they were nominated for Best New Artist at the LA Weekly Music Awards.

The band self-released an extremely limited edition collection of songs in their native L.A under the title of Bomb Romantics in mid 2004. A rough and ready lo-fi compilation of their work to date, the record caused enough of a stir to bag them a UK record deal and a string of live dates including support slots with the likes of Franz Ferdinand, The Killers and Maximo Park.

October saw the band release their debut long player, a startlingly original and exciting record that features the Bomb Romantics era track Do I Have Your Attention? alongside some new wide screen classics such as Going To Arizona and Dolores Delivers a Glorious Death.

The band plan to release a new version of “Do I Have Your Attention?” in January of next year.

The Blood Arm are: Nathanial Fregoso (vocals), Zebastian Carlisle (guitar), Zachary Amos (drums) & Dyan Valdes (keyboards).
