Alt-J To Release "An American Wave" Concert Film & Return to US In September For Tour

Mercury Prize-winning UK band Alt-J have announced details of their upcoming concert film, An American Wave. The fjlm includes interviews with fans and tastemakers as well as a full-length performance from their sold out show at the Midland Theater in Kansas City. Kansas City claims a unique place in the still-unfolding story of Alt-J. As one of the first American cities to embrace the band outside of the traditional cultural spheres on the coast, Kansas City has shown the world what its residents have known for years - that it's a modern, progressive city with a healthy appetite for art, music and culture. An American Wave was directed by Julian Acosta, who has directed music films and music videos for MIA, The Shins, Passion Pit, Band of Horses, and Foster The People.

An American Wave premiers Friday, July 12th at 9PM EST on The Warner Sound 

The trailer for An American Wave can be watched and shared here: 


Alt-J, whose single "Breezeblocks" is currently Top 10 at Aleternative Radio, are also preparing for their upcoming North American tour.  The tour, which begins in August, includes two dates in Los Angeles at the Hollywood Palladium (the first of which has already sold out) and a performance at Central Park's Rumsey Playfield.
