DIY has teamed up with Dr. Martens for a series of gigs this autumn.Dry The River has been rescheduled due to the band being invited to support on Biffy Clyro's forthcoming European tour. Fans who've purchased tickets will have theirs transferred to a new date in February 2014 - original purchases can be reimbursed. More details TBA. Once more with feeling. That's what they say, right? Music is always best when it's got some guts behind it - a reason to exist. When it's live, sweaty and in your face. With that in mind, it's with enormous delight we're teaming up with Dr. Martens to present the #STANDFORSOMETHING tour. Five cities, five shows, five amazing headliners who produce music from the heart. Over the autumn we'll be bringing the party to Manchester, Bristol, London, Nottingham and Glasgow to give you the best Saturday night you've had all year. WHAT DO YOU STAND FOR, SCOTT MILLER (DRY THE RIVER)? "Dry the River stands for encouraging people to have a good time, and enjoy some real music. We like to have a good time when we play, and we just hope that the people that come to the shows can as well."
This tour will also give a platform to a host of emerging support bands and talent from Dr. Martens' partnership with music charity, Strummerville. Keep an eye out for more announcements on those soon. In the meantime, tickets will go on sale this week - available over the counter in Dr. Martens stores from Saturday (31st August), and online via TicketWeb from Monday (2nd September). They're just £5 each.
