Alt-J Tour Schedule
Formed in 2007, alt-J is an indie rock back from Leeds, England consisting of Joe Newman (guitar/lead vocals), Thom Green (drums), and Gus Unger-Hamilton (keyboards/vocals). They released their first album, An Awesome Wave, in 2012, which won the British Mercury Prize. In 2014, alt-J released their second album titled This Is All Yours, which immediately hit No. 1 in the UK. Their unique sound is a result of their formation at Leeds University; since they couldn’t be overly loud in the student halls, they didn’t use bass guitars or bass drums.
Alt-J is stylized with a delta symbol, scientifically defined as “change.” Their song “Buffalo” was featured in the 2012 movie Silver Linings Playbook, starring Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper, and it was announced in 2013 that they would be composing an upcoming film soundtrack for Leave to Remain. You can catch alt-J on their 2017 tour. Check the alt-J schedule above for dates and concerts near you!
