Tour announcement: Anamanaguchi to play their first UK tour in September 2013
Listen: get free download taster ‘Endless Fantasy’
Almost selling out downstairs at The Garage off the back of a single tweet and facebook message, the band decided to add a select few dates, stick a toe in the cold British waters – and play the following dates:
- 13th September: Superbyte Festival: Manchester Jabez Clegg
- 14th September: Southsea Festival (Alcopop! Vs BSM Stage headliners at Edge of the Wedge)
- 15th September: London Garage
- 16th September: Brighton The Haunt
Taking their roles as the ultimate rave boy band seriously, Anamanaguchi have got it all sorted out. Ary is the kind of poster-boy cool Select readers wouldda drooled over, Luke is the edgy party dude, Pete wields strong dance-floor grooves like deadly weapons, and James does tech wizadry the smart kids will LOVE (he’s responsible for all the DIY sound-and-light electronics the band uses). Take That and ANAMANAGUCHI.
Anamanaguchi are: Lead songwriter Peter Berkman, bassist James DeVito, guitarist Ary Warnaar and drummer Luke Silas.
