The Joy Formidable To Headline Nme Radar Tour

The Emerge NME Radar Tour will hit the road in September with The Joy Formidable and Chapel Club leading the charge. Touring through 14 towns and cities across the UK, the Emerge NME Radar Tour gives music fans the chance to see the most hotly tipped bands of the future before they make it big.

The Joy Formidable and Chapel Club will take to the stage between 27th September and 14th October. With additional acts still to be announced the tour, showcasing the best new music, will be the hottest ticket this autumn.

Tour headliners, The Joy Formidable spent 2009 building a feverishly partisan fanbase with a string of singles, and two mini album releases on their own label, the studio recorded 'A Balloon Called Moaning' and the live recording 'First You Have To Get Mad'. Having subsequently secured a US release for the mini album with Black Bell Records, owned by Ayad Al Adhamy of past tour mates Passion Pit, the band are now selling out venues on both sides of the Atlantic. They are currently working on their debut album.

London-based five piece Chapel Club have had heads turning since emerging last year with their bespoke live shows in London and beyond. Having released two singles earlier this year and, primed with a Paul Epworth produced debut album under their collective arm, 2010 is gearing up to be a big year for Chapel Club and includes a full festival itinerary over the summer months.

The bands will follow in the footsteps of previous NME Radar Tour acts including La Roux, marina and the Diamonds and Everything Everything. NME's New Music Editor Jaimie Hodgson said: "The Radar Tour has always been an essential gig for those following breaking music. If previous headliner's trajectories are anything to go by, Chapel Club and The Joy Formidable are set for big things."

Tickets go on sale on Wednesday 30th June at 9am, priced at £9.50 and £11 in London.
