In addition to the nine dates in England and Scotland beginning January 21st, Alvvays will then play a further 11 shows across Europe leading into February.
Alvvays have enjoyed an incredibly successful year, having released one of the most acclaimed records of 2014. Their self-titled debut album landed at #29 in the NME‘s Albums Of The Year list, and as one of the Evening Standard‘s Indie Albums Of The Year.

Having hit the BBC 6Music A-list with their first two singles ‘Archie, Marry Me’ and ‘Next of Kin’, acclaim has come from both sides of the Atlantic, with the likes of Pitchfork, MOJO, Sunday Times and Rolling Stone also praising their first full-length.
