Slowdive reunite for two London shows
21 Jul 2014
90’s shoegaze band, Slowdive have reunited and play their first UK gigs in 20 years on 19 and 20 December at the London Kentish Town Forum.
The 90’s indie revival continues. Following in the footsteps of fellow shoegazers and Creation Records stalwarts, My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive have reunited and announced two dates at The Forum in Kentish Town.
Slowdive arrived on the student indie scene in the early 90’s alongside bands, such as Ride, Catherine Wheel, Lush, Chapterhouse and the aforementioned My Bloody Valentine.
Slowdive recorded a string of acclaimed singles and albums, including 1993’s Souvlaki, on which the band collaborated with ambient producer Brian Eno. The album has become the band’s best-known collection with tracks such as Souvlaki Space Station, Dagger and Alison.
Following European festival appearances earlier this year, Slowdive announced a full tour on the other side of the pond, across the US, in October. UK fans will be able to see the band at their two London shows at The Forum in Kentish Town on 19 and 20 December. Slowdive tickets will go on sale this Thursday, 24 July.
