Swedish band Dirty Passion are heading to Europe with Faster Pussycat and Enuff Z’Nuff. The month-long tour will take them to nearly ten countries (including UK) playing around 20 concerts. Dirty Passion was formed in 2006 and has since released a number of promo-CDs and toured intensively, visiting most of the larger rock clubs and festivals here in Sweden. “With no record deal or major company in the back, it’s very hard for bands like us to get noticed. To play support act to a larger and respected band is something most of us dream of, but to be booked for a whole European tour is something you don’t even dare to dream of. When the booking agent for Faster Pussycat and Enuff Z’Nuff asked us to do this tour, ”no” was not an option”

Enter Shikari have invited St. Louis, Missouri post-hardcore quintet Story Of The Year along as main support on the band’s January 2010 European headline tour, and as openers on the UK dates in February 2010 (which feature The King Blues as main support). The tour starts in Denmark on the 8th Jan, and ends on the 12th Feb with a show at London’s 5,000 capacity Hammersmith Apollo. Unfortunately, due to commitments back in the USA, Story Of The Year will be unable to appear at the Hammersmith show. There will be an Enter Shikari release to coincide with the UK dates. While on the subject of supports, the bill for the Enter Shikari Christmas party show at Hertfordshire University in Hatfield has finally been locked in. The show happens on Saturday 19th December across the Forum & Attic rooms at the newly opened venue. The diverse bill of bands and DJs is drawn from the friends and family of the band and includes performances ranging from the conscious electro-acoustic emo-pop of Get Cape, Wear Cape, Fly, to the poetic activist hip-hop of Lowkey, to the hyper-melodic rock-pop of Canterbury, to the gut-churning dubstep of the True Tiger label DJs. The night also features a rare performance by Enter Shikari singer Rou Reynold’s 8-piece hardcore/hip-hop band (in which he plays guitar) JBM… as well as DJ sets from Rou & ES drummer Rob Rolfe in their ROUT and Sgt. Rolfy guises. Doors open at 4:30pm and the show is open to anyone aged 14+. However, when Enter Shikari’s set in the Forum finishes at 10:30pm, all action moves into the Attic room, and due to licensing laws has to become 18+ from then until 3am
