Raking It In
The wave of energetic post-punk coming out of the U.K. shows no signs of stopping, and The Rakes are at the forefront of the latest charge.
The band isn’t about to let itself get lost in the fray, so it’s keeping busy with tour dates booked through mid-February.
Starting November 14, the band is supporting Franz Ferdinand on a lengthy European tour, including more than two weeks in the U.K.
After that trek wraps in Madrid December 22, The Rakes will take a few weeks off before saddling up for their own extensive headlining run of the U.K.
Fellow U.K. up-and-comers White Rose Movement and Duels will take the opening slots on the tour, which starts January 27 at Exeter University and finishes February 12 in Belfast.
