New tour dates for May and June 2012 including Primavera Festival.

San Francisco band Girls - aka Christopher Owens and JR - announce their return to the UK and Europe with a string of dates. Kicking off in the UK with their biggest headline show to date at Forum in London on Monday May 28th, the band will also play three shows in France and at Primavera Festival in Spain.

28 – London, Forum
29 – Lille, Le Grand Mix
30 – Paris, Cite De La Musique Festival
31 – Marseille, Cabaret Aletoire

1 – Primavera Festival, Barcelona

This marks the first set of UK/ EU dates since a sold-out tour for their eponymous second full length album ‘Father, Son, Holy Ghost’- released on Fantasytrashcan / Turnstile in September last year. This critically acclaimed record was soon followed up with a limited 7” release of ‘Lawrence’- a tribute from Girls frontman and songwriter Christopher Owens to Felt, Denim and Go Kart Mozart frontman and songwriter, Lawrence.
