The Week That Was have been confirmed to join Brooklyn heroes Yeasayer at the next Club Uncut which takes place next week (August 20).
An Evening With Yeasayer follows previous sold-out Club Uncut nights featuring Joan As Police Woman, Okkervil River and White Denim.
The Week That Was, a twelve piece collective (including brass, piano and vibraphone!) from Sunderland, are set to release their self-titled debut album next week (August 18). To get a taste of their ambient rock sound check out their Myspace page here here.
Yeasayer, as you probably know, are one of the finest new bands to emerge in the last 12 months or so, a fearlessly eclectic quartet from (inevitably) Brooklyn. When we featured them in Uncut back in January, Sam Richards wrote, “They pass world music and experimental rock through the stadium-pop filter of Peter Gabriel, arriving at a kind of awesome apocalyptic soul not a million miles from that of fellow Brooklyn voyagers TV On The Radio.”
Tickets cost £11, and Uncut’s exclusive allocation are available from www.seetickets.com
The show is open to anyone over 14, though under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
