Expect sweeping and classically influenced post-rock and atmospheric ambient music from their back catalogue of greatest hits as well as new tracks from their latest album, Valtari.

About Brixton Academy

This former cinema with its art deco interior, proscenium arch and 140ft dome is London's most celebrated venue for live music, winning Best Live Venue at the NME awards for 7 years in a row. The famous sloping floor means there are great views wherever you're standing, though keeping your feet can be a problem at the more raucous rock gigs. More about Brixton Academy
