Local Natives have announced five UK dates for Spring 2013 – including a London date at Scala on 14th February 2013 – following the release of their eagerly anticipated second album Hummingbird via Infectious Music on 28 January 2013.
The first song to be lifted from the record, a hazy dose of pop splendour called Breakers, is available to stream now via YouTube, and will be released on 7-inch vinyl on 3 December. The band play a short run of small European shows to mark its release, including a show at Hoxton Bar & Kitchen that sold out within minutes, and culminating in a performance at ATP curated by the National on 8 Dec.
Much has happened between the band’s critically-acclaimed debut album, Gorilla Manor, and the imminent release of Hummingbird. Gorilla Manor launched the band onto the global stage, saw them headlining throughout America and Europe, opening for bands like Arcade Fire and The National, and winning them lauded slots at major festivals around the world.
