Matthew & The Atlas Play Intimate London Show
Before supporting Mumford & Sons on their October UK tour, folksters Matthew & The Atlas will play an intimate one-off show, probably before becoming huge folk stars like the aforementioned Mumfords, at Paradise, North London, on August 12th.
A gardener by day, Matthew Hegarty, and his band, will then be heading into the studio to record a follow up to the debut EP To The North, which was released to positive reviews back in April.
The Paradise show will also host the first screening of their video for 'Within The Rose', directed by Neil Coxhill.
Matthew & The Atlas support Mumford & Sons on the following dates:
1st October - O2 Academy, Glasgow
2nd October - The Apollo, Manchester
4th October - The Dome, Brighton
5th October - Rock City, Nottingham
6th October - O2 Academy, Bristol
8th October - HMV Hammersmith Apollo, London
