INDIE rockers Club Smith have landed a dream gig supporting the hugely successful Kaiser Chiefs on tour.

The band, who hail from Bishop Wilton, will head out on the road for seven dates in January and February next year.

They will perform in front of large crowds at venues such as Reading Hexagon, Birmingham Academy and Plymouth Pavilions.

The four-piece, made up of Sam Robson, Lee Clark, Neil Clark and Vijay Mistry, are currently in the middle of their own tour promoting their new single “Call to Harm,” which was released on Monday, 7 November.

Singer Sam Robson said: “This is a really good opportunity for us. We’re heading to a bunch of places we’ve not been to before and it’s a great chance to fly the flag for our local area in front of some huge crowds.”

Their new record, inspired by the band’s increasing despair with modern society, follows on from their debut double A single “No Friend of Mine/Young Defeatists”, which received radio plays on Radio 1 and 6 Music.

The band, who were formerly known as The Hair, played at Leeds and Reading Festivals last year followed by a tour with Leeds-based platinum-selling band, The Pigeon Detectives.
