Fresh from the success of their late 2011 headline tour that saw them travel the length and breadth of the UK and the long awaited release of the critically acclaimed Give Me Infinity (read a review of that fantastic album right here) album, Reading’s melodic quintet Exit Ten have announced their first batch of headlining shows for 2012. This set of shows sees Exit Ten hitting some rarely played towns and cities around the country as well as some places that they were not able to get to on the previous tour.
The tour culminates with two dates on the “HMV Next Big Thing” set of shows, a sign that people are (deservedly) starting to sit up and take notice of Exit Ten. Support on the tour will come from Floods and Change of Plan (support may be different at the HMV Next Big Thing shows). The full list of dates are below:
