Today marks the groups first headline show announcement in since winding up their Bankrupt! tour and, of course, it has to be at London’s famous former BBC television broadcast centre at Alexandra Palace. The French four-piece will bring new music, and we all hope some of our old favourites, to the North London haunt on Saturday 30th September.
