On November 2nd the Palladium Riga concert hall will host the first Baltic performance of the UK’s indie rock heroes The View. Tickets are available starting August 9th from LVL 11 at as well as Biļešu Serviss box offices.

The Scottish indie rockers The View exist for the thrill of living life to its fullest and operate entirely on instinct, making music fired by passion, soul and joy. Having just embarked on their ‘Seven Year Setlist’ tour, the band swiftly juggle elements of punk, rock, alternative, Celtic pop and folk, representing the best of UK’s indie scene. Lead vocalist Kyle Falconer has already performed in Latvia, firing up the crowds at the 2011 Positivus festival main stage with Mark Ronson & The Business Intl.

The View was formed in 2005 by four school mates in Dundee – lead vocalist Kyle Falconer, fellow songwriter and base player Kieren Webster, guitarist Pete Reilly and drummer Steven Morrison. Discovered by former Rough Trade A&R man James Endeacott, the band signed to his label 1965 Records, part of Sony BMG group, and within two years they had torn up stages supporting the likes of Primal Scream and Babyshambles, while also releasing the hugely successful, Mercury-nominated, no 1 debut album ‘Hats Off To The Buskers’ which spawned hits including ‘Same Jeans’, ‘Superstar Tradesman’,  ‘The Don’, ‘Skag Trendy’, ‘Face for The Radio’ and the NME Best Track of the Year, ‘Wasted Little DJs’.

Also known as the musical heirs to the Libertines and Arctic Monkeys, The View’s sound is often compared to their contemporaries The Horrors and The Automatic. They have worked with producers of The Verve and Oasis, opened for The Stone Roses and played with Mando Diao, as well as performed at some of UK’s biggest music festivals, including Glastonbury, Isle of Wight, T in the Park, Reading and Leeds Festival and many more.

As their fifth record Kyle, Kieren, Pete and Steve wanted to create a setlist album with all the tracks they enjoy playing live as well as four new tracks. "Over the years there's been four studio albums, thousands of gigs and loads of memories on this crazy journey,” says vocalist Kyle Falconer, adding that “we wanted to create an album that was kinda like stopping and looking back over the years”. Having both retrospective and an element of novelty, “Seven Year Setlist” is a brilliant collection of music from one of Britain’s best indie/punk bands.

Tickets are available starting August 9th from LVL 11 at as well as Biļešu Serviss box offices.
