Message from the band:
Earlier this year I was diagnosed with an incurable autoimmune disease and have been receiving treatment for this by the incredible NHS.
I’ve loved every second of playing shows again this summer, especially after such a long time away but the harsh reality is that it’s been really hard on my body. I’ve been experiencing a lot of ups and downs in managing this bastard of a disease and after a lot of long chats with my doctor we’ve decided that the next step is surgery to remove the affected organ after which it should be much more manageable.
I'm scheduled to have the operation in a few weeks so I'm really sorry to have to tell you we're going to have to cancel our EU tour in September/October. As for shows later this year, as it stands the medical advice I've been given is that we'll have to wait and see how the recovery goes after my operation. We will of course keep you guys updated as to whether the North American tour will proceed, as soon as we know, you'll know. I know this is far from ideal and we're so sad we won't be able to make these EU shows happen, we’ve been so looking forward to seeing you after so long!
I want to say thank you to the amazing NHS for taking such good care of me, thank you to Sam and Alex for their support and understanding but mainly thanks to all of you for being the best fans in the world.
Three years after their last album, Two Door Cinema Club is back with a mad energy and a new perfect feel-good single. "Wonderful Life" heralds the arrival of a fifth album with the evocative title "Keep On Smiling" and, above all, of a European tour that stops at Ancienne Belgique on Friday 30 September.
With a career that spans fifteen years, the Irish trio has become a fixture on the international indie, electro/rock scene. Alex Trimble, Kevin Baird and Sam Halliday distill their talent with intelligence and passion, as on the hits "What You Know", "Something Good Can Work" and "Undercover Martyn". They continue to amaze with their originality, energy, the freshness of their compositions and their dynamic melodies! This year, Two Door Cinema Club is no exception with "Keep On Smiling", a colourful fifth album with an irresistible electropunk sound, produced in collaboration with Jacknife Lee (Bloc Party, The Killers, Taylor Swift) and Dan Grech Marguerat (Halsey, Lana Del Rey, George Ezra). Get ready for an amazing performance in Brussels on the AB stage on 30 September!
