With live shows that have now reached legendary status DARTZ! are set for more dazzling dates this June with their emo tinged synth-pop buddies I Was a Cub Scout.
After spending much of 2006 on the road supporting the likes of Get Cape Wear Cape Fly, The Rumble Strips and The Research, DARTZ! kicked off 2007 supporting their good friends Hot Club De Paris before heading out on their own epic headline tour of the UK throughout February and March. The opening night of the tour was awarded KKKK by Kerrang! who described William, Henry and Philips set as “energetic, edgy songs, lots of hand clapping, audience singalongs making it a truly riotous and happy occasion.”
The band recently took their explosive live shows over to mainland Europe for a short headline tour of Spain and a couple of festival appearances in Austria – where they appeared alongside The Young Knives and The Long Blondes – and Luxembourg.
They will be continuing their busy 2007 in June after being personally requested by I Was a Cub Scout to be their special guests at the following shows:
19 Liverpool Academy 2
20 Newcastle Academy 2 *HEADLINING*
21 Sheffield Plug
22 York Fibbers
24 Wolverhampton Little Civic
26 Leicester Charlotte
27 Norwich Arts Centre
28 Kingston New Slang
29 Tunbridge Wells The Forum
30 London Dingwalls
* DARTZ! headline Newcastle show. Ticket prices vary but are generally £7.50. Most venues doors will open at 7pm apart from Kingston (9pm) and London Dingwalls (1pm afternoon show.)
With glowing accolades from all corners of the music industry DARTZ! continue their ascent to the top with the release of their new single Fantastic Apparatus/Cold Holidays on 23rd April 2007 digitally and 14th May 2007 physically through Xtra Mile Recordings.
Available on limited edition 10 coloured vinyl this double a-side is backed by the brand new and previously unreleased tracks Latin and Greek and Viva la Republica. Fantastic Apparatus and Cold Holidays are both taken from DARTZ! critically acclaimed debut album This Is My Ship which got its much anticipated release in February 2007 through Xtra Mile Recordings.
With the release of Fantastic Apparatus/Cold Holidays, the third single taken from debut album This Is My Ship, and summer tour dates with I Was a Cub Scout, 2007 is set to be the year of DARTZ!
