Announced as opener for Queens Of The Stone Age UK & EU arena tour in November

Tickets on-sale 10am, Friday 16th June

London based, subversive post-punk trio deep tan have been announced as the opener for Queens Of The Stone Age on their UK & EU Arena Tour. 

The band say: “ever since the epic roadkill revenge story in qotsa’s video for ‘no one knows’, we’ve been huge fans of the band, so we’re absolutely thrilled to have been asked us to join them on their uk and european arena tour this november.”

Since they first emerged with their debut EP ‘creeping speedwells’ in 2021 to widespread critical acclaim, deep tan have been winning over legions of fans with their unique brand of post-punk; never afraid of challenging the establishment, their songs are politically astute and socially conscious but never preachy. It’s a potent blend that has seen the band thrust to the forefront of the chasing pack with a string of fine releases and a subversive punk spirit. 

The band then went on to release a Dan Carey produced single with his legendary label Speedy Wunderground. The resulting single, ‘tamu’s yiffing refuge’, is a stripped down, driving track that once again proves less is more.

Last year, deep tan released their second EP ‘diamond horsetail’ which features previous singles ‘beginners’ krav maga’ and ‘rudy ya ya ya’, the former of which is a dark and haunting track with dissonant guitars in response to the idea that women should take self defence classes. On ‘rudy ya ya ya’, deep tan recorded the first known diss track to Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, with a distinctly angular and immersive energy.

The release of their two EPs has seen the band featured in NME, DIY, Clash, Loud and Quiet, The Quietus, So Young, Notion, Dork, Brooklyn Vegan and much more, with their music playlisted at BBC 6 Music and Amazing Radio, and garnering plays on Apple Music Beats1, Radio X, SiriusXM, KEXP, BBC Wales and Amazing Radio USA.

Taut, seductive and enthralling – deep tan channel legendary indie heroes like The Slits, Young Marble Giants and The Raincoats with influences from contemporaries and peers like Folly Group and Dry Cleaning to create something that is undeniably their own.
