*THE MOLOTOVS ANNOUNCE SPRING TOUR!*
*FEATURING BIGGEST LONDON HEADLINE SHOW YET!!*
*TO FOLLOW UP ESTEEMED ZIP IT UP EP APPEARANCE!!!*

Eloquent leftfield pop troopers THE MOLOTOVS are heading out on tour at the end of March to tie in with the radio release of Citys Guest, taken from the sextets current mini-album, And The Heads Did Roll, which ties in with a wee national jaunt that rolls into London Hoxton Bar & Kitchen on Wednesday April 7th full dates here:

MARCH 30th GLASGOW King Tuts
MARCH 31st YORK Stereo
APRIL 3rd LIVERPOOL Korova
APRIL 4th WOLVERHAMPTON Civic
APRIL 6th BRIGHTON Audio
APRIL 7th LONDON HOXTON Bar & Kitchen (Range Life Night)
APRIL 8th BRISTOL Start The Bus
APRIL 10th SOUTHAMPTON Lennons

THE MOLOTOVS consist of Will Daunt (vocals / guitar), Henry Walton (guitar), Dom Millard (keyboards / vocals), Iain Lock (bass) Guy Henderson (drums) and Ed Jenkins (trumpet). They do much of their plotting from a bunker in the Fortress in North London where they are currently creating their debut album. Theyve also been quietly causing a stir in the industrys nether regions over the past half a year with their arched, articulate take on British Pop (not to self: NOT Britpop) which mixes together the home-grown habits of The Kinks and The Maccabees with the thrills and spills of our overseas cousins Arcade Fire and The Walkmen to cook up a heartily euphoric storm.

Citys Guest follows hot on the proverbial heels of THE MOLOTOVS appearance on the Zip It Up EP, the old school six-track compilation released to celebrate fierce pandas sixteenth birthday at the end of February. A bold attempt to highlight the fresh-faced generation of bands eschewing the dubious virtues of the grubby post-Libertines crowd, the Zip It Up EP was a peachy keen New Pop hoedown featuring The Heartbreaks, The Crookes, Hoodlums, Sketches, Ideals and Brilliant Mind.

THE MOLOTOVS also headlined the Zip It Up launch / panda birthday party at the 229 on February 24th, all of which kept their momentum rolling along merrily from a 2009 which saw the release of the terrific And The Heads Did Roll mini-album on the panda. The fun-lovin sixsome appeared at Glastonbury and Fistful Of Fandango, sold out their Come To Grief single launch party at the Lexington, toured the UK in the company of The Boxer Rebellion, appeared on BBC 6 Music as Steve Lamacqs Favourite New Band, rocked the Welsh masses at Cardiffs SWN and rocked the northern masses at Manchesters In The City so mightily they were invited to play the Best Of In The City event in London Town.

Just to add to all this excitement THE MOLOTOVS headline show at Hoxton will also act as the opening night of a brand new club called Range Life, which sees the young pups at Club Fandango link metaphorical arms with the promoting grown-ups at Kilimanjaro for an evening of alt.pop thrills which features esteemed support from fellow Zip It Up EP cats SKETCHES and IDEALS.
