Mike Skinner plays a set in Dublin on December 28, plus The Streets are returning live in the new year too. Click here for more.
The Streets have just blessed us with two new tracks, ‘Burn Bridges’ and ‘Sometimes I Hate My Enemies More Than My Friends’.
A few months ago they announced‘The Darker The Shadow The Brighter The Light’ tour is touching down in multiple cities, including Dublin’s Olympia Theatre on April 16 and 17. Mike Skinner is also set to play at a nearly sold out show in Hangar on December 28. Click here for final tickets to that.
Listen to the new ones below.
According to NME here’s what Mike had to say.
“I’ve missed tour buses very much. Which is the least of the reasons why I have decided to tour The Streets again. The other thing I’ve missed is trying to think up what I’m going to say in the gap between the songs. When you DJ they tell you that you don’t need a tour bus and you don’t need to think up things to say between the songs. But seriously, it’s been long enough. With my Tonga parties, the new rap and grime MC’s I have been producing and the DJing, I have been living with music since making The Streets for nearly as long as I made The Streets. I’m not the guy smoking in the car anymore though, I have become the guy in the club, so I hope I will be excused for putting on after parties in nightclubs after every show.”
Mike Skinner was the cover story of Issue 002. He discussed the foundations and future of the current UK sound. Click here to read that. He plays a solo DJ set on December 28 in Hangar for our Christmas party. That’s nearly sold out so grab a ticket here.
