The Blue Aeroplanes Books First US Shows in 13 Years

(PR) The Blue Aeroplanes hit the US shores for the first time in 13 years with appearances at South by Southwest Music and Media Conference.

A long time part of the Bristol, England, music scene that spawned great bands like Massive Attack, Portishead, and Tricky, the Aeroplanes hold a special place in the history of British pop music. The current schedule includes two gigs with more to be announced.

With a new album in the can, When Things Are Good, sounding like a collision between the Hold Steady, Lou Reed with a British accent and Bright Eyes, the Aeroplanes are heading to Austin with their greatest statement of intent yet.

The new material includes the monstrous punk-pop soon-to-be classic "25 Kinds Of Love", the funky, somehow Skynyrd-y groove of "One World Passport" and deceptively jaunty Hollywood critique "Great Movie Cliches." The new repertoire also includes songs about novelists, cancer, 22 year-old Scarlett Johanssen lookalikes, birthday suits, LA hotel love, Paul Klee and the Devil.
