Wolf Alice have today been announced as the headliners of our next Counteract Magazine Presents gig in May. ‘Fluffy’, the band’s recent single, was received to rapturous acclaim, finding Wolf Alice touted as one of the finest acts around today. Founded on its gloriously twisted take on rock and backed by the touching ‘White Leather’ on its flipside, the band found themselves topping the Hype Machine charts, in BBC Radio One sessions with Huw Stephens and championed by magazines such as NME, The Fly and Clash as one of the ones to watch for 2013. With the release of ‘Bros’ (May 20, Chess Club Records) and this new run of dates, soon the joyfully infectious nature of all things Wolf Alice will be impossible to ignore. Over the past three years we’ve worked closely with Birmingham Promoters to host shows with the likes of Wild Beasts, Peace, Swim Deep and Crystal Fighters – with all shows being well attended. May’s Wolf Alice gig is set to continue the trend. Stay tuned for support announcements as we think you’re going to love this one… In association with Birmingham Promoters, Wolf Alice will play The Victoria on Friday May 31 2013, with tickets priced at just £6. Tickets are on sale now, here. Read our review from Wolf Alice’s last Birmingham show right here.
