Portico Quartet Set For UK Tour And Remix Single Release

Having enjoyed a 700% increase in album sales of their Mercury-nominated debut album 'Knee Deep In The North Sea', London-based Portico Quartet capitalise on their new found household name status with their first ever national tour of the UK. Launching this with their now sold-out gig at the Purcell Room as part of this year's London Jazz Festival on November 19th, they visit venues across the UK.

The band's hook-laden rhythmic style has also resulted in two remixes of their song Cittagaze by leading dub step DJ/producers Kwes and L.V. - the latter also signed to the Hyperdub label, home to mysterious Mercury nominated artist Burial. The track will be released along with two more songs from the album, as a single on November 10th on the Vortex-Babel label. Dates include: (19 Nov) London, Purcell Room sold out, (20 Nov) Exeter, Phoenix, (22 Nov) Windsor, The Fire Station, (23 Nov) Gateshead, Sage, (24 Nov) Glasgow, Arches, (25 Nov) Leeds, HIFI Club, (26 Nov) Manchester, Mint Lounge, (27 Nov) York, Fibbers, (28 Nov) Birmingham, Hare & Hounds, (30 Nov) Cambridge, Junction, (3 Dec) London, ICA, (4 Dec) Southampton, Talking Heads
