CasioKids October sees Norway’s breakthrough pop quintet Casiokids return to the UK for a full tour including shows at Camden’s Proud Galleries and a party with Little Boots as part of The Warehouse Project in Manchester. Recently tagged by excitable UK media as ‘the hottest tip since Hot Chip’ (NME), ‘most impressive’ (Guardian Guide) and ‘a Scandinavian sensation’ (The Independent) Casiokids have also pricked up the ears of UK stalwarts The Doves who upon hearing the last single, keenly requested the band support them on tour.

Tangentially connected to the burgeoning freak folk and new noise communities, but perhaps closer to individualists such as High Places or Bird Show, ‘Sacred Psalms’ is a great new album by a band who – amidst an ocean of derivitive/ generic copyists – really are finding their own voices and doing something a little bit different. We believe they fully deserve your attention. Featuring current core members Josh Bertram (vocals, guitar, saxophone, piano, banjo, organ, synth, drums /percussion, programming/samples/noise) and Chaz Knapp (vocals, guitar, banjo), the band's creative process has been a mixture of working individually in isolation, sending material and ideas back and forth across the internet, and occasionally coming together to rehearse, record and tour. 16th Oct - 4AD, Diksmuide, Belgium 18th Oct - Trix, Antwerpen, Belgium 19th Oct - TBC, Clermont-Ferrand, France 20th Oct - Ground Zero, Lyon, France 23rd Oct - SWN Festival, Cardiff, United Kingdom 24th Oct - The Croft, Bristol, United Kingdom 25th Oct - The Freebutt, Brighton, United Kingdom 26th Oct - Luminaire, London, United Kingdom w/ ZUN ZUN EGUI + Freeze Puppy 27th Oct - Sneaky Pete's, Edinburgh, United Kingdom 28th Oct - Captain's Rest, Glasgow, United Kingdom 31st Oct - Le Lieu Unique (Soy Festival), Nantes, France Iggy Pop & The Stooges To celebrate the fifth anniversary of the Don't Look Back season, in which All Tomorrow's Parties asks artists to perform classic albums in their entirety (beginning with The Stooges performing Fun House at the Hammersmith Apollo), and also as part of this year's 10 Years Of ATP celebrations, ATP concerts is very proud to present: IGGY & THE STOOGES performing RAW POWER in its entirety supported by SUICIDE performing SUICIDE (first lp) with more special guests to be confirmed!
