Scottish band The View are heading to the North West for the tenth anniversary of their debut album, Hats off to the Buskers.

The band is set to play Manchester’s Ruby Lounge on Sunday, May 7. Due to the immense popularity of the Manchester show, the band added a second date to play in Manchester on May 8, which also sold out quickly after release.

They play Liverpool on Saturday May 13 at Hangar34, supported by The Blinders, a three-piece alternative group from Doncaster.

The four-man band from Dundee begin their tour at the notorious Glasgow Barrowlands on May 4 before ending the tour in Edinburgh’s Liquid Rooms May 17.

The album, Hats off to the Buskers, was released in January 2007 and included tracks such as Same Jeans, which the band was popularly renowned for after it hit number 3 in the UK singles chart, and Wasted Little DJs, which was voted Best Track of the year at the NME Awards in 2007.

They recorded the album with producer Owen Morris, who had previously produced albums by Oasis and The Verve.

The band has a great reputation for their live performances and are a regular fixture at festivals across the UK. They have played at Scotland’s T in the Park a record eight times.
