Alt-J said in a statement: “The O2 is a huge, cool venue and we are excited to be helping to mark its tenth birthday. It was a very special night the first time we played there, and we’re looking forward to going back for seconds. This is one of the first shows where we’ll be playing new songs from our forthcoming album, and we can’t wait to get back on stage again.” 

Emma Bownes, programming director at The O2, said: “The O2 has always been the home of unforgettable live experiences and we’ve had some incredible acts take to the stage and make history over the past ten years. We wanted to mark our ten year milestone by inviting artists and fans to come together and celebrate with us. We’ve brought together a selection of world class artists to mark our ten years and it’s shaping up to be brilliant. We can’t wait.”

This morning, Alt-J announced that their forthcoming album, ‘Relaxer’, will be released on June 9. The band also shared ‘3WW’, a new song featuring Wolf Alice’s Ellie Rowsell.
