Following a sold out London show in February and a full tour in May including Manchester’s Deaf Institute (May 6th) which sold out 3 months in advance, Unknown Mortal Orchestra are returning to UK in November due to huge demand, to play London’s legendary Electric Ballroom (their biggest UK show to date) and Manchester’s Gorilla (Nov 8th). Full tour dates below.

With the critically lauded ‘II’ released earlier this year and the singles ‘Swim and Sleep (Like a Shark)’ and ‘So Good At Being in Trouble’ winning them fans on radio and beyond, there has never been a better opportunity to be enraptured by their distinctive vein of slanted and enchanted rock.

For a glimpse at what’s in store, have a listen to the very special acoustic live session of UMO lynchpin Ruban Nielson performing a beautiful, stripped back version of ‘So Good At Being In Trouble’, just him, a guitar, a white back-drop and his extraordinary voice.
