Alvarez Kings Tickets
Alternative Indie foursome Alvarez Kings are heading out on tour to showcase their stunning new album fresh from their recording in L.A and last November’s tour as main support for Melanie Martinez showing that 2017 is going to be a big year for these South Yorkshire lads.





26 May 2017 - Upstairs at The Garage, London
29 May 2017 - The Factory, Manchester





Four lads from South Yorkshire, UK who gleefully share their moniker with an infamous old school South American gang, Alvarez Kings summon pop power through timeless analog synth and guitar magic. The quartet—brothers Simon [vocals, guitar] and Paul Thompson [bass, keys, backup vocals], Sean Parkin [guitar], and Richard Walker [drums, samples, pads]—has quietly built up an international buzz since their 2012 formation. BBC Radio proclaimed “No Resolve” the “Single of the Year,” while they impressed audiences at Isle of Wight and O2 Wireless Festival in addition to show-stopping stints on the Vans Warped Tour in 2013 and 2015 and support slots on tours with Melanie Martinez, PVRIS, and Echosmith. Their 2015 EP, Fear To Feel, expanded their foothold in the U.S. Spotify featured the title track on coveted playlists such as The Indie Mix and Ultimate Indie Playlist, notching 40K streams in less than 12 hours and eventually amassing over 700K and counting. Meanwhile, they drew acclaim from Billboard, Huffington Post, and more. Preceded by the introductory focus track “Cold Conscience,” their full-length debut, Somewhere Between [Sire/Warner Bros. Records], is now primed to make a significant impact in 2017.
