The brilliantly-different Napoleon IIIrd has a trio of excellent news to deliver. Firstly, he's releasing a new single on March 7 from his current long player, Christiania. It's 'The Unknown Unknown' and is very good. Secondly, he's announced a handful of UK tour dates as well as some in Europe, which includes Ireland.
Firstly, here are some Napoleon IIIrd headline dates across the United Kingdom.
07 - Cardiff, Undertone
09 - Edinburgh, The Electric Circus
10 - Sheffield, Harley
11 - Salford, Manchester, Islington Mill
12 - Leeds, Nation of Shopkeepers

30 - Trondheim, Norway, Credo
07 - Vienna, Austria, Club Weird Kong
08 - Dublin, Ireland, The Workman's Club

But that is not it, he will also be supporting I Like Trains on their February tour across the UK, so plenty of opportunities to catch him in and around this fine country. See his MySpace for those dates, there are several of them. Thirdly and finally, below is a video from IIIrd's recent-ish show at the resplendent Hoxton Hall. It is, coincidentally (or not), 'The Unknown Unknown'.
