1000 copies of takk… on vinyl are being manufacted and will hopefully be in uk and usa stores before the new year. as we understand it, takk… should sound extra nice on vinyl since it was recorded 100% analog (as opposed to ( ) which was recorded digital).
we are pleased to announce two further uk shows in march. the band will now play the manchester apollo on march 27th and will also play a second night at the london hammersmith apollo, on march 28th. pre-sale tickets available now on klink.
