Sleeping States - a.k.a Markland Starkie - need more love, it has to be said. We gave his In The Gardens Of The North a gigantic 9/10 earlier in the month, but it's not enough.
So, to redress this, we're giving away a pair of tickets for every night of the UK tour, which kicks off in Glasgow very, very soon indeed.
These are the dates and places of the tour:
Monday 24 August – Glasgow, The Captain’s Rest
Tuesday 25 August – Edinburgh, Sneaky Pete’s (Edinburgh Fringe event)
Wednesday 26 August – Hull, The Adelphi
Thursday 27 August – Norwich, Arts Centre
Monday 31 August – Brighton, Freebutt
Tuesday 1 September – London, The Bath House
Wednesday 2 September – Manchester, The Corner
Thursday 3 September – Birmingham, The Hare And Hounds
Friday 4 September – Coventry, Taylor John's
All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning a pair of tickets to your chosen night is answer the following question, send in a PM to myself (Luke Slater), which you can do so by clicking on my name at the top of this article. It's simple.
Q: On what record label do Sleeping States reside?
- A) Def Jux
- B) Bella Union
- C) Epitaph
Include your full name, the answer, and which show you'd like tickets for in your message. The cut-off date for entries is 11.59PM on the day before the event you want to go to. Winners will be picked randomly, we promise.
