Following on from the release of their critically acclaimed album, ‘Kingfisher’ (released 12th August 2014 via Topshelf Records), and two successful EU/UK tours with Gnarwolves and Brighter & Hindsights  respectively. Prawn are set to come back to the EU/UK with The Flatliners. The spring tour is set to start on 21st September in Europe and will hit the UK from 12th October.

New Jersey based emo rock quintet, Prawn, formed in 2007 and after self-releasing their estimable full length ‘You Can Just Leave It All’ in 2011, had the album re-released by Topshelf Records (home to the likes of: Braid, Field Mouse, Diamond Youth and more). The band have since released two more LPs, most notably their last album ‘Kingfisher’, which entered the Billboard ‘Heatseekers Chart’ at No.16 upon release.

‘Kingfisher’ calls to mind bands such as The Appleseed Cast, Brand New and American Football, but never sound like they are replicating one specific sound. Prawn excel at producing songs that are extremely recognisable, but more importantly they still exhibit masses of originality. This is what made ‘Kingfisher’ one of the most extolled releases to come out of the so called ‘emo revival’ scene in 2014. However, Prawn are far more than just another emo band; They imbue their emotive and exigent vocal style with ambient post-rock infused instrumentation, and in doing so Prawn have invigorated a genre which is, more often than not, plagiarised from the seminal 90’s founders of the scene that the band take influence from.

Since their formation Prawn have extensively toured across the US playing with the likes of A Great Big Pile Of Leaves, Into It. Over It., Foxing, The Hotelier, Dikembe, and The Jazz June. Similarly, the band have previously made three visits to the EU and UK where they have consistently made a huge impact on eager audiences, acquiring new fans with every show by exhibiting their unique flavour of plaintive yet urgent emo rock.

The band also have recently been in the studio with Will Yip (Title Fight, Pianos Become The Teeth, Whirr), hinting at the possibility of new material on the horizon. Prawn have been moving from strength-to-strength with every release and this tour will provide an opportunity to potentially hear new material and to finally see why they are presently one of the most talked about bands in the scene.
