Quickly becoming one of the fastest growing alternative bands, South Arcade are celebrating their song DANGER hitting 1 million streams in a week by announcing the ‘I Was Here First’ tour. The 3-date run of headline shows will be later this year, starting in their hometown of Oxford on September 27th, followed by Leeds on September 28th and wrapping up at Downstairs @ The Dome in London on 2nd October. Tickets are available to buy HERE.

After an impressive run of sold-out tours, support slots and well-received releases, the band have secured their place within the alternative scene. In recent weeks, the rising stars have seen a huge surge in fans with previous single DANGER blowing up across social media. In just two weeks the band have had a huge increase in video views with over 7.4 million on TikTok and over 25 million on Instagram, which has resulted in over 1 million streams in that time, which is continuing to rise rapidly.

Speaking of the upcoming tour and DANGER’s success, South Arcade have said, “It was crazy how quickly DANGER has reached so many new people. We didn’t have any headline shows planned for the rest of the year but we knew we had to meet these new fans and what better way than playing some gigs? We can’t wait to welcome the newcomers to the South Arcade world – see you in the Autumn!”

For fans who can’t wait until the ‘I Was Here First’ tour, the four-piece will be supporting Taylor Acorn at the O2 Academy Islington on 28th May. The band have built a strong reputation for their energetic live performances having previously supported the likes of Dead Pony, RØRY and Yours Truly. Reminiscent of the 2000’s pop rock era, which they are heavily inspired by, they have captured the Y2K nostalgia and aesthetic, while combining it with their modern production.

The Oxford-based band have received incredible support at radio, being picked as BBC Music Introducing Track Of The Week with previous single Nepo Baby. The band have previously had plays on the Introducing show, Jack Saunders’ Future Artists and Nels Hylton’s Future Alternative.
