Exact dates, though, remain TBC...
Run The Jewels

Speaking to Clash recently - read the full interview here - the rap pair of Killer Mike and El-P, aka Run The Jewels, confirmed plans to bring their successful stateside tour to the UK.

Currently on the road in the US in support of their brilliantly received debut LP - which is reviewed here - Run The Jewels intend to visit this side of the Atlantic before 2013 is through.

"I’ve just been looking over a bunch of offers, but we’re looking to come to Europe this year, for sure," said El-P, although exact details are still to be confirmed. What the duo is looking to avoid, though, is a "five-week death run". Says Killer Mike: "I was on that run in January! That’s a rough run, bro."

El-P continues: "We’re definitely going to come to the UK, and the major cities in Europe. We’re just working it out right now. We’re just taking things one step at a time – but there is a huge demand for us to come out there, and the fans have been really vocal about it on Twitter and general social media. So, people want us to come there, and we will come there, for sure."

Run The Jewels' debut LP is available for free, as a download. And it's a record you really do need in your life. So click to our interview and find out how to get it, gratis (and why the rappers have made it a freebie).
