Django Django release new video, announce tour (playing Union Transfer in March)

The U.K.’s Django Django released their self-titled debut album at the beginning of this year and are closing their breakout 2012 by announcing plans for 2013. After beginning the year in Australia, the band will tour the United Kingdom in February and the U.S. in March. They’ll be stopping at Philly’s Union Transfer on March 8th, just 3 days into the tour. Tickets will go on sale tomorrow at noon via TicketFly. Full tour dates are below.

The band has also released a new music video for “Life’s A Beach,” the newest single from the debut album. The video was directed by Isaac Eastgate and can be watched below.

Django Django was nominated for the Mercury Prize this year and reached the shortlist, but lost out to Alt-J’s debut An Awesome Wave. Alt-J also just announced U.S. tour dates and will be stopping in Philly in March as well; more information is here.
