MISTERWIVES EUROPEAN SHOWS ANNOUNCED
UK HEADLINE SHOW
ISLINGTON ACADEMY 2, LONDON – MAY 21st
MisterWives are excited to announce their live return to the UK in May. The NYC indie-pop quintet – Mandy Lee (Vocals), Etienne Bowler (Drums), Will Hehir (Bass), Mac Campbell (Guitar) and Jesse Blum (Keys/Trumpet/Accordion) – will play London’s Islington Academy 2 on May 21st.
The band’s tour comes in support of their debut album Our Own House, whose day-glo shimmer and joyous pop has been a huge hit in America, becoming a Top 20 smash on the iTunes Album Chart and reaching No.3 in the Alternative Album Chart. They’ve also lit up TV shows across the US with superb live performances on Good Morning America, Late Night with Seth Myers, Jimmy Kimmel, MTV and VH1.
MisterWives’ first taste of the UK came from their triumphant sold-out live shows at The Social and Madame JoJo’s in 2014. The band return in fine form having recently finished their first highly acclaimed headline tour of the US, which included a number of SXSW shows with notable performances at MTV and Spotify House.
As one of the most exciting new bands in America, MisterWives are on an unstoppable upward trajectory and are thrilled to be bringing their much-praised live show to the UK and Europe.
