Following a memorable 2012, which saw their second album 'I'm A UFO In This City' garner fantastic reviews, and live shows which included Download Festival plus dates with Tonight Alive and Evanescence, LostAlone have announced a headline tour for February 2013. The band's Xmas show at the end of last year prompted another 5KKKKK review in Kerrang who said "with the ascending melodies of classic Queen and a touch of Muse's modern daring, the trio are even more astonishing to see live than to listen to..a candidate to be one of those bands we'll still be listening to in 20 years time".
The tour will kick off in Plymouth on Feb 15th, finishing up at London's Borderline on Feb 24th. Support comes from The Dead Famous, and Evarose.
