Garage-pop surf punk band

Aussie garage-pop ‘n’ surf punk band Bleeding Knees Club embark on a UK tour this February ahead of the release of their debut album Nothing To Do, on IAMSOUND/Columbia Records on March 5.

They play the Green Door Store, Brighton, on February 22.

Spokeswoman Eleanor Swan said: “Alex, Jordan and Matthew will return to the UK in support of the album, kicking off with their first show at the Green Door Store in Brighton on the February 22,

“Bleeding Knees Club burst out of Australia’s Gold Coast in early 2011 and started to build a steady fanbase through their reckless live performances and via their super-catchy demos, which quickly found champions beyond the Aussie board scene.

“Their debut UK single, Have Fun, was released on the Noir label last summer and quickly struck a chord with UK tastemakers, enjoying radio support from Zane Lowe and Huw Stephens on Radio One, Lauren Laverne on 6Music and Jon Kennedy on Xfm where the song was also added to the evening playlist.

“The original duo spent much of the summer of 2011 in the UK where they shared stages with Black Lips, Cults, Toro y Moi, Blood Orange and Cerebral Ballzy. They also scored spots on The Great Escape in Brighton, and Liverpool Sound City while NME named them as one of the 50 Best New Bands of 2011.”
