Cult indie guitar band Twisted Wheel have confirmed their decade long hiatus is well and truly over by announcing additional live dates to those that have seen the band tour the UK in the early part of this year.
The band will play at Gorilla in Manchester on Saturday 20th October and The Wardrobe in Leeds on Friday 26th October with the return to Manchester follows up on a June gig at Band On The Wall which critics hailed as a hugely successful comeback.
The band were poised to become one of the UK's biggest indie bands a decade ago, their first single, 'She's A Weapon', being released in 2008 to huge fanfare. They supported Oasis on their 2009 dates and played many sold out headline shows themselves. But the wheels were already coming off following a rapid rise. Line up fluctuations began as early as 2009 and their potential was halted permanently in 2014 when the band officially broke up.
Twisted Wheel's current Snakes and Ladders tour references the ladders of opportunity they were previously afforded and the snakes which led to their demise. Wiser, older and hungry to reclaim their audience, they look to be doing so with their new and critically acclaimed live set.
