Alt-J announce extra London date due to popular demand

Leeds indie band Alt-J have added an extra date, at London’s O2 Academy in Brixton, to their 2013 UK tour.

The Mercury Prize-nominated band are currently in very high demand, performing a number of gigs in November before then embarking on more performances next year.

Taking place on Friday, May 17th, the extra gig is ideal for fans on short breaks in London who maybe didn't manage to get tickets for the band's January tour.

Having released their debut album, An Awesome Wave, which received critical acclaim, this year, the band are also set to perform their biggest gig to date at London's Shepherds Bush Empire in January next year.

The band have enjoyed a real rise to musical stardom since forming in 2007 when all the members attended the University of Leeds.

They are considered to be among the favourites to scoop this year's Mercury Prize with An Awesome Wave.
