Two Door Cinema Club has announced that they will make their triumphant return to North America on September 28th as they kick off their fall headline tour at Rumsey Playfield in Central Park, New York City. Two Door Cinema Club will play 22 dates across North America, including the Austin City Limits Festival and wrapping up at The Observatory in Santa Ana, CA on October 28th. Tickets will go on sale this Friday, July 20th at 1 PM EST for most shows.
Two Door Cinema Club recently announced the release of their highly anticipated sophomore album, BEACON, which is set for release on September 4th, 2012. Following their headline slot on February’s NME Awards Tour, the band, Alex Trimble, Kevin Baird and Sam Halliday, travelled to Los Angeles, California to record the album with acclaimed producer Jacknife Lee (Bloc Party, U2, REM) in his home studios. The result is a bold statement of intent – an ambitious and heartfelt selection of tracks showcasing a stunning depth of songwriting and a broader, more mature sound.
Kevin Baird tells Rolling Stone: “We recorded our first album in London, and this time we just got to drive up PCH [Pacific Coast Highway] and drive by the sea, and it was lovely. We were so much more focused and so much more excited to be in there and doing it.”

With their debut album Tourist History achieving platinum status in the UK and their native Ireland, and selling over 1 million copies worldwide, Two Door Cinema Club have become one of the biggest breakthrough bands of the last two years. Their incendiary live shows are internationally renowned, resulting in the band selling out headlining tours all over the world including multiple North American tours, the UK, Europe, Asia, South America, Japan and South Africa. Most recently, Two Door Cinema Club played to an overflowing tent at the 2012 Bonnaroo Music and Arts festival in Tennessee, debuting tracks from BEACON to a frenzied crowd.
This year, BEACON looks set to make its mark – shining brightly and guiding the highly exciting Irish rock band into the next chapter of their rapidly evolving musical journey.
