Rising Yorkshire band Avalanche Party
will join forces with Dutch indie-rock quartet Canshaker Pi
this October for an eleven-date UK tour.
Each date will see the two acts battle it out for the headline slot via a series of challenges. Keep an eye on both bands social media for further news.
“We’ve had this tour on the back burner for a while so really looking forward to playing these gigs. We’ve had a wee break from a very busy summer of festivals and feeling pretty limber for this tour now. Old haunts and new territories. 1000mph. Great to have our Dutch comrades Canshaker Pi along for this dual headline tour lark. How to decide who will headline on what night I hear you all (nobody) cry? We’ll pitting our metal against Canshaker in a series of challenges. What kind? All to be revealed on the tour via our social medias but rest assured there’ll be feats of endurance, feats of skills, feats of bravery, feats of patience, feats of the feet and hands. I’ve heard traditional Dutch board games may feature. Do we make Tiddlywinks great again? Which feline reflex character do we stick in the goal posts and which set piece master do we send forth to glory? Time will tell. And we near the time”

“As we all know, the Dutch discovered and conquered the UK in the late 1960s. British folk didn’t stand a chance defending their lands against the obviously superior Dutch, with their baffling swagger, hot bodies and cool taste in music. Their towns were burnt down, their wives were mistreated and their children were eaten. Canshaker Pi shall continue this domination by slaughtering the mediocre ”Avalanche Party” in several challenges, gaining that sweet headline spot every single night of this tour”
