The gently crescendonic quintet, who spent a fair chunk of 2015 glued to radio playlists in the UK, The Netherlands and the US with their ‘Remedy’ EP and ‘Choose’ single, have just announced the tropically epic Franklin and creamy folkpoppers TORS have been confirmed as support, and the details look like this:

LONGFELLOW are a wistfully epic alt.pop quintet from South London. Since crawling from
the melodic wreckage of a Club Fandango Buffalo Bar show back in the day Longfellow have hit SXSW and CMJ, toured with Hall & Oates, supported Coasts, Augustines and Walking On Cars and recently headlined the BBC Introducing stage at Radio 2’s Festival In A Day, alongside Rod Stewart, Bryan Adams and Will ‘William’ Young.
Their radio hits are even more impressive: across their ‘Prelude’ mini-album of 2014 and
their ‘Remedy’ EP and ‘Choose’ single of 2015 they have racked up no fewer than four Radio
2 playlist tracks, plus a welter of plays across Radio One and BBC 6 Music, while ‘Choose’
has been playlisted on A&R Worldwide’s Passport Control in North America ever since
waaaay back in last September. Chuck in appearances on ‘Made In Chelsea’ and
‘Teen Moms 2’, download that delightfully morose version of ‘Elastic Heart’ at www.longfellow-music.com,
shake vigorously and consume immediately.

FRANKLIN are an indie-alternative trio based in North London. They consist of Alex Frankl (vocals/rhythm guitar), Brandon Hargrave (lead guitar/keys), and Seb Hakim (drums). The band conjures up an atmospheric, soulful air that blends elements of The Neighbourhood and Ben Howard with essence of Foals. Since unveiling debut EP 'Dirty Drug' in the summer of 2015, they have been flexing their gigging muscles and building a strong body of fans while their mightily epic Cold Heart has amassed a rippling mountain of plays online. A new EP is currently being recorded with Jimmi Naylor of The Pigeon Detectives with a spring release pencilled.
TORS are five fresh-faced critters from Devon who rather excellently feature brotherly pair
Matt and Theo Weedon, grandsons of guitar legend Bert. Their blend of soaring vocals,
hooky melodies and story-driven lyrics earned them a BBC Introducing headline slot for their
second ever show, and justifiably so if the dead smart video for GOOD TIMESis anything to go by.
