New Album + UK Tour Dates

In support of their forthcoming new album, ‘Nursing Home’, London indie rock trio Let’s Wrestle have announced a UK tour with Yuck in May as well as several other shows including a one-off support show with Fucked Up and No Joy. 

Bookending these live dates is Let’s Wrestle’s new single ‘In Dreams Part II” which is out 9th May, followed by their latest album ‘Nursing Home’ on the 16th May on Full Time Hobby. Hear album track ‘Dear John’ on SoundCloud.  

First off, Let’s Wrestle will be supporting indie upstarts Yuck on their UK tour, including a sold out show at the Scala on 18th May. On 20th May they will also be playing together for one night only with Toronto sextet Fucked Up, for a one off show at the Village Underground that also includes art-rock shoegazers No Joy, Flats and Leeds art punkers Eagulls in its line up. They then round off the month with another date at the Scala on the 31st May, this time in support of Half Japanese, on what is the seminal Michigan band’s first live London date in years. 

Let’s Wrestle will be showcasing material from ‘Nursing Home’ throughout the shows, as well as much-loved material from their debut ‘In The Court Of Wrestling, Let’s’. Recorded last year with Steve Albini in Chicago, their brand new album is a step forward for the band, a collision of garage punk and harmonies, as seen on their forthcoming single ‘In Dreams Part II’, which also recently won the Rebel Playlist on 6Music.
