Ruby Lounge

LOST & FOUND featuring THE TWILIGHT SAD & guests LET’S WRESTLE / BURNING BUILDINGS

The Twilight Sad announce details of their new long-player ‘No One Can Ever Know’, the follow-up to 2009’s acclaimed break-through ‘Forget The Night Ahead’. ‘No One Can Ever Know’ is released across all formats on 6th February 2012, full tracklist as follows: ‘Alphabet’/ ‘Dead City’/ ‘Sick’/ ‘Don’t Move’/ ‘Nil’/ ‘Don’t Look At Me’/ ‘Not Sleeping’/ ‘Another Bed’/ ‘Kill It In The Morning’.

Already flagged by the widely leaked ‘Kill It In The Morning’ and forthcoming first single proper, ‘Sick’ (November 14th), ‘No One Can Ever Know’ marks a sonic shift for The Twilight Sad. Freshly inspired by a listening diet of Caberet Voltaire, Liars, Magazine, Autechre, Banshees, Fad Gadget, PiL and Can, a synth-heavy sound characterizes ‘No One Can Ever Know’, a record thematically akin to ‘Holy Bible’ era Manics, ‘Violator’-era Depeche Mode and ‘The Downward Spiral’ -era Nine Inch Nails.

£9.00 Advance / £11.00 on the door

LOST & FOUND NME TOUR AFTERPARTY featuring METRONOMY DJ SET / TRIBES DJS SET / POGO DJS

Over the last 4 years we’ve hosted the best parties in town for the NME tour Manchester dates. Our first aftershow back in 2009 saw Florence & The Machine come and play a midnight set to a sell out crowd followed by The Drums a year later and Crystal Castles last year – both sell out shows. So nail those tickets fast – this is a party not to be missed folks.
