Due to the current situation Black Country New Road are postponing their upcoming tour. We are working with the band to set a new date but in the meantime, ticketholders will be refunded.

Black Country, New Road propelled themselves far and wide from their first two offerings to the world via 2019’s Athen’s, France’ and Sunglasses’. What followed was live performances gaining legendary status and being declared the best band in the world” by The Quietus.

Despite the band coming out seemingly fully formed and bristling with a wiry tension that merged post-rock soundscapes with jazz-inflected post-punk, their debut album, For the First Time, manages to straddle a perfect line between this early period incarnation and their ever burgeoning evolution. Very much a collection of tracks aimed to reflect their live set, For the First Time is the perfect capturing of a new band and all the energy that comes with that whilst also clearly the work of a group who have no interest in repetition.

« Like their name suggests, there isn’t a destination in mind yet for Black Country, New Road, just velocity and sense of escape; a disaster narrowly averted, a hard earned sense of freedom. Absolute potential.” »
— The Quietus

Note: Given the current circumstances and the fact that it is impossible to predict how the situation will evolve worldwide, some groups scheduled to perform may cancel their tour at the last minute and consequently their appearance at Rotondes. This is unfortunately beyond our control and we apologise for any inconvenience caused.
