Working Men’s Club Announce UK Headline Tour & Share Erol Alkan Remix Of “Ploys”

In advance of their eagerly anticipated sophomore album landing in just under two weeks, Working Men’s Club have today announced details of their biggest UK headline tour to date, a run which sees them play both the Academy in Manchester and The Kentish Town Forum in London. The tour also takes in Brighton, Glasgow, Cambridge, Birmingham, Bristol and the band’s first headline Irish show in Dublin.
Additionally, the band have also shared an Erol Alkan remix of ‘Ploys’, a track taken from their second album Fear Fear, out 15th July on Heavenly Recordings.

With this remix Erol unleashes peak time acid thunder on the Calder Valley, breaking the track down to icy vocals and relentless 303 bassline before slowing building it up into a full on reach-for-the-lasers raveageddon.


Talking about the remix, Erol said:

I had my rework of ‘Ploys’ already finished in my head before I even sat down to make it within an afternoon. Working Men’s Club have got all the right chops and I’m a fan.


Finally, after this spring’s debut shows in America and a triumphant appearance at this year’s Great Escape and Primavera festivals, the band recently announced a series of intimate shows, in conjunction with some of the best independent record stores in the UK on album release week – tickets HERE. The band have a summer of festivals before major tours to UK, Europe & US in the autumn. Full list of live shows below.
