Gig News: Tourty Fruity – United Fruit UK/France Tour


Will the tortured puns never end? No, probably not.

Following a busy summer of gigging, including performances at T in the Park and King Tut’s, we could forgive United Fruit for putting their feet up for a bit. Instead they’ve decided to head off on tour again for most of September. Admirable work ethic there gents.

If you haven’t heard United Fruit before then, well, why not? Debut album Fault Lines has been on pretty heavy rotation around here since it was released at the end of May, and has a pretty good chance of popping up in my Best Of lists at the end of the year. You can see what I had to say about the album here, but the short version is this – it is very loud, and very, very good.
Having caught the band live a couple of times this year I can assure you that they aren’t just good on record, but excellent on stage too. I love a band that makes a Hell of a lot of noise, and United Fruit do it in some style. If they are playing at a town near you then I highly recommend getting along to see them.
