Texas based combo FEATHERS have been announced as the support act for DEPECHE MODE’s European tour during January 2014. The Electricity Club first featured FEATHERS in a review of their fabulous debut album ‘If All Now Here’ in June. Its epic lead single ‘Land Of The Innocent’came over like a post-apocolyptic BANGLES and is almost sure to make it into TEC’s 30 Songs Of 2013 listing.
Led by Anastasia Dimou, it has been an amazing year for the Sister(s) Of Night with them first opening for Gahan, Gore and Fletcher at their SXWS gig in March and then having their track ‘Dark Matter’ included on the game ‘Grand Theft Auto V’. Their support slot for DEPECHE MODE in 2014 is apt recognition of their talent and potential.
While DEPECHE MODE may be the first recognisable reference, FEATHERS have taken that template, adopted other influences and developed their own sound and identity, something which many acts that choose to drink from the Basildon cup could learn from…
FEATHERS ‘If All Now Here’ is released by Nyx and available for download via Bandcamp, Amazon or iTunes
FEATHERS open for DEPECHE MODE on the following European dates:
Barcelona Palau St Jordi (15 January), Madrid Palacio de Desportes (17 January), Madrid Palacio de Desportes (18 January), Montpelier Arena (21 January), Lyon Halle Tony Garnier (23 January), Antwerp Sportpaleis (25 January), Birmingham, LG Arena (27 January), Paris Bercy (29 January), Paris Bercy (31 January)
