The band completed a short sold-out UK tour in the spring which culminated in a triumphant sold out show at the Hammersmith Apollo. This was followed by a U.S. tour in April, which included a slot at the Coachella festival. This summer has seen the band headline the Other Stage at Glastonbury, the Fuji Festival in Japan, Benicassim in Spain and The Falls Festival in Australia.
Currently on an arena tour of the U.S. with Green Day the band have recently made some high profile TV appearances over there including slots on Letterman, Last Call with Carston Daly, Tonight with Conan O’Brien, The Late Show with Craig Ferguson and The Jimmy Killen Show.
They are set to head to Brazil later this month where they will be appearing at the South American MTV Awards where they are nominated for best international band.
