Alt-J announces return visit to Boston

, Staff

After rocking a pair of sold out shows at the Paradise Rock Club this past weekend, Alt-J have revealed plans for a return visit later this year. The English rockers will take on the more expansive Bank of America Pavilion when they return on Friday, September 13. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $20 to $30, are now on sale through Live Nation.

Alt-J continue to tour in support of their 2012 debut album, An Awesome Wave. Awarded the 2012 Mercury Prize, the album features hit single “Breezeblocks” (video is streaming below). Alt-J was nominated for three Brit Awards: British Breakthrough Act, British Album of the Year and British Group of the Year. The band is also in the running for mtvU’s “Breaking Woodie” award at the 2013 Woodie Awards, which will take place on March 17.

The Pavilion show will come almost a year to the date after Alt-J made their Boston debut with a performance at Great Scott in Allston as part of the “Fenway Recording Sessions”. The band also performed at Brighton Music Hall in December as part of MTV Hive’s Live in Boston series. Watch footage from the show here.

Alr-J’s extensive stateside tour plans also include stops at multiple music festivals, including Coachella, Sasquatch, Governor’s Ball and Bonnaroo.
