Happy New Year to you all and all the very best for the upcoming 12 months.

The best news you could possibly hear is that Matadors will be spending a weekend in February playing rock music to people in different cities.

We are playing with our friends Get Human which feature Matadors defacto tour manager/booking agent Toby 'Razor' Chelms - he is a wonderful human being, embrace him.

The dates are in the sidebar but also detailed below as well. See you on the road.

Friday Feb 24th - Boston Indian Queen
Saturday 25th Feb - Brixton Windmill (matinee show)
Saturday 25th Feb - Lincoln Arms, Dorking (evening show)
Sunday Feb 26th - Brighton Hydrant (matinee show so we can get home and go to work on Monday).

Next gig is the New Year New Start, Bombed Out Records all-dayer on the 28th of Jan - see you there.

Much Love.

Another sneak peek, album release and more....

Here's a second song from our forthcoming debut album (which we will think of a name for very soon, honestly) - a balls out rocker by the name of Beneath The Night (we are aware it sounds like one of those Channel 5 'erotic' dramas they always used to show late on a Friday night).

Beneath The Night by matadors-uk

The album will be available for a lovely pay-whatever-you-want price from 7th November on our Bandcamp page, if you've forgotten the URL it's here:

We also have some gigs lined up - including our official album launch at the Fox & Newt on the 18th of November - we will probably even have t shirts for sale. Check the side panel for the rest of the dates, we always want more as well.
