Britain’s Wolf Gang has recently been revving up the crowds at their supporting gigs for Coldplay, which you can see for yourself in the video below. After earning their stripes, they will now be touring the US as headliners (dates below the jump).

Wolf Gang’s Max McElligott describes the experience with Coldplay: “We had the most amazing time. It really exceeded our expectation of how it would be, which was already pretty high! I genuinely think that the crowds we played to enjoyed our set, we had a really positive response on our Twitter and Facebook, and each night we would go and do a meet-and-greet for whoever wanted to come and say hi, we were kind of taken aback at how many people turned up each night!”

"The stories in this collection are circular, puzzling; they often end as cruelly as they do quietly, the characters and their journeys extinguished with poisonous calm.
