Lightning Bolt Decide To, Uh, “Ride The Lightning” Even Longer By Adding UK Dates

In case you've been hiding in a cave this past month with plugs lodged in your ears, you may not have heard that the mighty Lightning Bolt have once again unleashed their thunderous roar upon the world with a brand new album, Earthly Delights (TMT Review). And since most people in Europe, Asia, and Australia actually hide in caves for a living, Lightning Bolt are headed their way to make sure they know.

As we previously reported on two separate occasions, Brian Chippendale and Brian Gibson -- a.k.a. The Brians, a.k.a. Lightning Bolt -- are doing 12 dates in Japan and 8 days in Australia/New Zealand starting in early November. Now for a third time, we here at TMT are giving you the official TMT Lighntning Bolt update and letting you know that, after their New ZeJapastralia tour, Lightning Bolt will then head over to the UK for 9 more dates, including a performance at the My Bloody Valentine-curated All Tomorrow's Parties Festival and the Ten Year Anniversary ATP in Butlins Minehead.

So here, yet again, is hopefully the final updated list of Lightning Bolt tour info for the year. But if you see the Brians, ask them where them U.S. dates are at. One show before Halloween ain't cutting it
