Athens, Georgia’s psych pop band of Montreal have confirmed they will be supporting Franz Ferdinand in London next January.
of Montreal will be main support for Scotland’s finest at their NME Shockwaves Awards show at Heaven Tuesday 20th January 2009.
This London date follows the previously announced European dates for January 2009, which are as below.
of Montreal’s reputation for flamboyant live shows has been rapidly increasing this year, mainly due to their antics promoting critically-acclaimed ninth album ‘Skeletal Lamping’. Aside from performing their set alongside dancing giant golden Buddhas and orgiastic Satyrs, frontman Kevin Barnes upped the ante by performing semi-naked on top of a white horse in New York’s Roseland Ballroom and most recently performed their encore in LA’s Hollywood Palladium dressed as a centaur.
